Wildline Bridge, Germany
If you have a fear of heights, this might not be the read for you! Situated 60 meters above the ground, the Wildline bridge in Germany’s Black Forest is called ‘The Bridge of the Brave’ for good reason. Even on the calmest of days, the suspension bridge slightly sways over the one-hundred-year-old fir trees below, so even the boldest visitors are glad of the protection our Webnet railing gives them while they enjoy the views.
Jakob Rope Systems designed, manufactured, and installed the Webnet fall protection system, providing a safe experience for visitors without taking away the ‘thrill’ of experiencing life on the edge. This is due to Webnet’s transparent structure, which allows walkers, as well as those in pushchairs and wheelchairs, to experience the fantastic views at lofty heights.
The Wildline Bridge is the only one of its kind in Europe with an upwards suspension (the bridge mounts towards the middle), meaning the first few daring steps are into the unknown – as the opposite end of the bridge can’t be seen.
Our elegant, high quality stainless steel Webnet wire mesh is the perfect finish to the bridge’s assembly, delivering the key design requirements of durability and safety. The Jakob system is not only extremely durable, but also requires minimal maintenance from operators.
Due to its flexibility, the net can adapt to the bridge’s movement. It is also extremely weather-resistant and able to withstand strong storms and large fluctuations in temperature.
