“Slinky Springs to Fame”, a footbridge that is evocative of a coloured ribbon floating in mid-air, meanders over the Rhine-Herne Canal as it links two parks in the Emscher region. X-TEND stainless steel mesh was used as fall protection for this stressed ribbon bridge. Together with the railing's steel posts it cushions the movements of the “living” structure.
