Bodenheim platform roof

The Bodenheim platform roof by HERING has a modular structure and can be used on all platforms on railway stations of various categories across the country. This is approved by DB Station & Service and an integral part of the product catalogue.

Bodenheim platform roof – System advantages:

  • DB Station & Service AG approved roof system
  • Large variety of designs and a high degree of functionality
  • Low life cycle costs (LCC)
  • Fast, cost-effective assembly processes
  • Can be used for all common platform geometries
  • Integration of available stairways or elevator systems
  • Simple replacement and retrofitting of system components
  • Integration of sonication / lighting / grounding / glazing

Modular design

The major advantage of the Bodenheim roof compared to the Zwiesel roof is, amongst other things, quicker assembly on the platform. This is achieved by a high degree of prefabrication before installation takes place at the installation site. The Bodenheim platform roof can be used in many different geometries on central platforms as well as island platforms. The island variant of the platform roof is designed such that it can be used for all common platform widths from approx. 5 m to 13 m.

The roof cover is divided into two parts. The outer area towards the platform is covered with a trapezium sandwich profile whilst the middle area can either be covered using sandwich profiles or glass elements made of laminated glass. The integrated lighting takes both architectural and safety-relevant aspects into account. The loudspeakers on the PA system are also integrated in the roof.

In particular, important points regarding the improvement of platform roofs carried out by DB Station & Service AG such as accessibility of the roof via grates, location of lighting, etc., have been a feature of the Bodenheim since its introduction in 2002.
