COMBISAFE creates a safe line of defence at new military museum

For the construction of a stunning new €90 million National Military Museum in Soesterberg Netherlands, the main contractor required an edge protection system that  offered reliability, flexibility and compatibility with flat roofs. COMBISAFE demonstrated they had the ability to meet the challenge, leading to the specification of the Counterweight System.

Commissioned by the Ministry of Defence and designed by Claus and Kaan Architects, the National Military Museum is being built by contractor HEIJMANS on the former airbase in Soesterberg. The 7,000-square -metre exhibition building will house an extensive collection of military aircraft, including collections from the recently closed Army Museum in Delft.
