Adelaide Electrification Project

In late 2012 Pollen teamed with AECOM to deliver the ARC2; the second generation overbridge safety screen system and individual bridge specification to the Government of South Australia.
The project was delivered entirely electronically and conforms to a stringent international safety standard. It was completed late 2013.

Dissimilar to vertical screening, ARC2 has a social conscience, preserving observability across site, enabling safer public spaces. ARC2 meets and exceeds the requirements for electrical safety screening then  goes further, the lightning bolt form language, integral with the structure, presents the universal symbol for electrical hazard.

The ARC2 is a cost effective modular system of horizontal screens that meets and exceeds BRITISH STANDARD BS EN 50122-1:1998 Railway applications Fixed installations Part 1: Protective provisions relating to electrical safety and earthing.
