Innovative products for increased accessibility

Wiggert & Co. GmbH, 76227 Karlsruhe, Germany


Mobility is a basic necessity for man. The improvement of mobility in public areas of all people, including those with limited mobility, is recognised as an important socio-political goal. Not only handicapped people, but also those whose mobility is limited, such as senior citizens, parents with prams and small children, holidaymakers with cases or people carrying heavy shopping bags, benefit from barrier-free bus stops and train stations as well as barrier-free road crossings to get to footpaths and cycle paths. The Profilbeton company from Borken, near Kassel in Hessen, specialises in the production of concrete products that meet precisely these requirements. These include, for example, the extraordinary bus stop kerb, the Kassel Kerb® and also the Kassel Querungsbord® system – border-spanning products that make life a little simpler for people. Profilbeton’s products are optimised on a continuous basis and further components for the equipment of barrier-free tram and bus stops and barrier-free crossing points are being developed. Hence, the product range has been supplemented over the course of time by the Kassel Scale Slab and the Kasseler Guide Slab for the Blind, which form an outstanding guidance system for the blind in combination with the Kassel Querungsbord. This spring, Profilbeton put a completely new production facility into operation for the manufacture of the guide slabs for the blind. The production line, which was supplied by BFS and produces using wetcast forms from Wasa, is supplied with concrete by the new mixing plant from Wiggert. Wiggert supplied a complete package for concrete production into which Profilbeton was able to integrate the existing cement silos.
