Flood Protection

Radeberger Spezialausschank bar on Brühl’s Terracein, Dresden

The bar occupies what was originally the bridge master’s house, built on the bank of the Elbe in 1848. Guests come to this historic setting to enjoy hearty local food and beer. Not even flooding must be allowed to keep visitors away.

Our demountable thyssenkrupp stop log system makes sure it never will. Altogether around 100 square meters of 200 x 100 tk stop logs are used. The maximum barrier height is 3.35 meters. Up to a water level of 2.40 meters, the structure is supported entirely by free-standing posts. If the water rises above this height, additional backstays are used.
