Fire protection walls in exhibition halls
The “Messe Basel” is the largest and most important fair hall of Switzerland and one of most significant in whole Europe.
The new hall complex was complety in only 22 months. The complex is extended with two upper storeys over the fairgrounds. It offers a total exhibition area of 38’000 m² on the ground floor, as well as on the two upper floors.
With a hall height of 10 meters on the ground floor and 8 meters on the upper floors, it allows two- or even three-storeys stand constructions. Up to 10 meters high fire protection walls had to be created for the connection within the hall.
