The bottom of the island is slightly swampy and is therefore in danger to be destroyed quickly. Therefore, the route to walk on was built on piles and is realized as a platform. For the railings which are formed like waves, a flexible railing infill was needed. The optimal solution was a stainless steel cable mesh which was realized with a X-TEND CXS with a mesh width of 40mm. Thanks to the easy installation method, the CXS mesh can be installed over large spans of railings efficiently and quickly.
