A gallery of alternative uses
The EVOLUS gallery was originally designed by Sunkid technicians as a canopy for the Moving Carpet.
However, the special construction and the highly effective wind- and weatherproof design are increasingly opening up new areas of application, such as as a launch house. Another possible application opened up at the Hintertux Glacier after the operators were looking for a stable roofing for the escalator in the outdoor area of the Sommerbergalm. This escalator is primarily used by beginners and children and facilitates their access to the lifts of the winter ski area.
However, the EVOLUS gallery, made of aluminum and polycarbonate, not only protects the guests, but with the help of its swinging doors also protects the escalator from snowdrifts, wind and ice outside the operating hours.
