The Traunstein State Building Authority has had the roof of the venerable St. Zeno Minster in Bad Reichenhall equipped with a roofguards snow load scale.
On 17.12.20, the snow load scale was lifted onto the nave, which was built in the 12th century. A massive crane was necessary to lift the system at a dizzying heightand to fix it at the roof .
The church of St. Zeno will be renovated and upgraded over the next few years. To ensure a safe stay of the faithful in the minster, the roof will be monitored by the Traunstein State Building Authority with the snow load scale from now on until the work is completed.

The PNP reports from our customer Bäder Burghausen, who monitors the flat roof of their indoor swimming pool with our snow load scale. Both the demands on the snow load, which have increased significantly since the construction of the indoor swimming pool in the 1970s, and a roof renovation due in the next 3 to 5 years are good reasons to monitor the flat roof of the indoor swimming pool with our Snow Load Guard as an additional safety measure. This way, in the event of heavy snowfall the responsible persons can react, before it´s too late.
The town of Burghausen also makes the snow load data measured by the Snow Load Guard available to its citizens online.
