Award for high design quality and functionality
The Red Dot jury has decided: AluFix® EVO, the temporary safety railing system of Alupro Oy for high safety roof work, receives the Red Dot Award for high design quality as the first fall protection system in the class of Occupational Safety Equipment.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design proves that the designers at Alupro understand perfectly what brings the customer real added value on the roof.
AluFix EVO – highest security and functionality
AluFix EVO is a lightweight, high-stability aluminum construction. It can be used on any roof, with or without parapets, with up to 10° incline.
AluFix EVO consists of a simple and durable aluminum support structure and railing elements which are used to create a continuous safety railing along the edge of a work area. The system consists of securely locking clamp mechanisms which connect without the use of any tools. The corner connections are adjustable and offer greater working space at lower overall depth. With a variety of accessories, such as the Parapet Bridge, AluFix EVO can be extended for almost all fall protection scenarios.
AluFix EVO is GS-tested and meets the EN 13374-A safety standard. For more information, see www.alupro.com/en/products/alufix-evo-safety-railing/
Red Dot – Evaluation platform for good design
Since 1955, the “Red Dot Award: Product Design” has been identifying the best products every year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 nations submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto “In Search of good design and innovation”, the 39 jury members evaluated the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise.
