A conical glass roof spans the entrance area of the trade fair in Stuttgart. The horizontal shading beneath the glass roof ensures a well-tempered climate. The shading is made up of 80 textile-covered slats as long as 7.5 metres, which may be turned by 90° on their horizontal axis. In order to bring these reliably into the desired position the planners of the sun protection system (Hassinger in Ludwigshafen) decided in favour of a drive solution from the manufacturer elero Linearantriebstechnik: Econom 0 linear actuators each with a force of 3,000 newtons move the slats precisely – right down to the millimetre.
