robust, visible and super easy to maintain

Ruter wanted to evaluate and further develop their Pylons (Søyler) to be cost effective, robust, and easy to maintain.

First of all we collected essential information from people installing and maintaining the pylons. By means of our own 3D CAD models and by evaluating 3D models from the production company, we have, all the way, effectively discussed production and tested out new ideas and possibilities. Together with Ruter, test criteria and procedures have been implemented and executed at production. This made it possible to step directly into the last physical prototype and get approval for production.

The pylons are now much more modular and therefore easier to adapt to different stops. Parts that might need replacement or need to be different for different stops are easy to adjust or replace. The pylon has been tightened for water and a proven system for air ventilation has been implemented to avoid condensation on the glass panels. The design have been improved to make the product look sturdy and nicely finished.

The Pylons are now installed at several stops in the centre of Oslo. Robust, visible and super easy to maintain.
