Cave Lighting™ will invite you to an Information Day on 26th or 28th February 2009 into „Knöpfchenhalle“ at the Herbstlabyrinth in Breitscheid. We will present you the Karst around Breitscheid, the new LED-light-technique of CaveLighting™ and the first time use of fibre-glass-plastik (FRP) inside a cave.
The Herbstlabyrinth is the biggest cave system Hessens and one of the major cave systems in Germany. It has a length of ca. 5800 m and a altitude difference of ca. 80 m. Since the exploring in 1993 new spectacular cave parts where found again and again. Particularly the dimensions of channel and the extensive sinter in "Hessen-tunnel“ and "Knöpfchenhalle“ are inimitable.
The „Knöpfchenhalle“ is the biggest hall of the cave with a length of ca. 80 m and a amplitude of ca. 30 m and a maximum high of 30 m. Since 2008 the „Knöpfchenhalle“ is approachable by a tunnel which is necessary for the development to a show cave. The opening is intended for the 9. May 2009.
After completing the development to a show cave the "Knöpfchenhalle“ will be one of the most modern show caves worldwide. The construction of the sidewalk is done by fibre-glass-plastic (FRP). This is a enormous assistance for transport and construction and is lower in price. Also the cave is completely appointed by LED-light-system.
Advantage of the new LED-technique: lower wattage and heat emission, which is positive for the ecologic of the cave. In a first project in 2008 the over 50 years old illuminating of the „Segeberger Höhle“ (Noctalis) is changed by a new LED-illuminating of Cave Lighting™. Via the new LED technique structures of blanket and barrier are in a better light and has also reduced the wattage over 90%.
