An exceptional workplace on the world’s highest wooden observation tower

Observation Tower Pyramidenkogel, Keutschach

With its 100m, the world’s tallest wooden observation tower offers a unique view of Carinthia’s impressive lakeland. The finest spot is the 70,6m high viewing platform, that offers a 360 degree view of the lakes, hills and mountains.
The construction consisting of 16 elliptically arranged larchwood supports and ten elliptical steel rings with diagonal struts screws itself breathtakingly into the sky.

The tower measures exactly 100m, including the 18m long antenna tip, a requirement, which also the emergency lighting has to withstand.

Flush integrated stainless steel handrail

The 440m long handrail of the TUBE luminaire series illuminates the stairs and creates beautiful lighting accents in addition to efficient LED-emergency lighting. The cable routing of the completely flush integrated stainless steel handrail runs invisibly inside the handrail tube.

Outdoor luminaires

Standard compliant safety lighting in outdoor areas can also be designed in an aesthetically pleasing way and without architectonic compromises. Outside a building emergency lighting must be provided until a safe area is reached.

The requirements for emergency luminaires in outdoor areas are easy to describe: sufficient light, resistant, high degree of protection, discreet design and adaptable to your expectations.
