Ehrwalder Almbahn – longer U-Fittings within a landslide
For being prepared for the next season the ski area Ehrwalder Almbahn decided to do several maintenance and expanding works. The snow-making-system is going to be equipped with the positive-locking system of TRM.
The special attribute of this project is, that parts of the area under construction are situated within a so called “fault zone”, meaning that the concerned slope faces permanent movement. Due to this exceptionality longer U – Fittings have been used in order to prevent the whole pipe-system from damages.
These longer U-Fittings have the ability to transfer possible movements of the landslide to the ductile iron pipes, which means that the available scope will be used. In addition to that also the resulting traction force will not cause any problems for the pipe system as the VRS-T connection is used. Hereby the special installation offers the pipes even more space when facing slope movements.
