The Wallmerod township in the Westerwaldkreis in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany, commissioned the company Faber Abbundtechnik to build twelve so-called tripods for their public open-air swimming pool. These tripods are designed to provide enough shade in the summer for visitors to the swimming pool, particularly small children in the splash pool. Calculations were made so that at least 30% of the splash pool will always be in the shade provided by the tripods. The project was supported and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union.

The tripod is a development by the wood teaching and research area at Trier University of Applied Sciences. Faber Abbundtechnik, who cooperated with Trier University of Applied Sciences on this project, approached us in search of innovative technology for their planned tripod node solution. The attractive yet functional design of the tripods called for a composite material with specific requirements. These requirements could only be met by our HSK system. The node solution is now based on our HSK system and patented encapsulation technology in a CADCAM-based timber frame. As part of the execution of the tripod project, Faber Abbundtechnik was trained in HSK system adhesion by Rainer Bahmer, the CEO of TiComTec GmbH.
