System platform modula® - Types 1 and 1b

modula® - Type 1

... is the free-standing side-platform, founded as standard with precast flat foundations, but also with various depth foundation variants, generally outside the pressure range of railway traffic loads.  Due to the Pi-plate construction, large span widths of up to 9.70 m are possible, depending on the platform height and width.

modula® - Type 1b

... is the backfillable platform, as an outer or middle platform, available in continuously adjustable element dimensions, usually with length 6.00 - 7.50 m, width 2.30 - 3.00 m. As with Type 1, the foundation is possible as a precast flat foundation or with different depth foundation variants.

System advantages:

  • Very few joints
  • Optimum truck utilization with 2 x 12 t element weight
  • Strips for visually impaired persons and optional danger zone hatching integrated at the factory
  • User approval granted by DB Station & Service AG
  • High degree of prefabrication brings high added value in a short time (higher performance density outside the construction site)
  • Highest surface quality because of prefabrication in our own prefabrication plant specializing in high-quality concrete surfaces
  • Very short total construction time. Reduced obstruction of railway operation during assembly.
  • Reduction of project costs by saving safety and construction supervision times as well as operating times and construction site logistics
  • Installation also possible during shutdown breaks, e.g. during nightly shutdown periods
  • Also suitable for platform extensions or temporary use
  • Foundation usually outside the pressure range from the railway traffic loads, therefore no statically verifiable shoring in the foundation area required
  • Lower construction site logistics by reducing the use of bulk materials, individual building materials and small materials
  • Very low maintenance costs
  • Durability of components because of very high freeze-thaw salt resistance,
  • weathering far below permissible limits
