Brandenburg Gate, Berlin
Protection of monuments
The Brandenburg Gate is a magnet for tourists from all around the world. The neo-classic construction made from sandstone has been restored since it was first built. The sensitive base has been constantly protected with PSS surface protection technology since 1991.
The distinctive columns of the Brandenburg Gate are completely exposed to potential attacks of graffiti. That is why the absorbent sandstone base has been treated with the reversible PSS 20 graffiti and surface protection system. The disposable layer system forms an invisible wafer thin film that can be removed in the event of graffiti attacks and the adhesion of dirt. The protective layer is checked and renewed at regular intervals. The graffiti protection system from PSS Interservice GmbH in Germany has been kept successfully clean and the surface of the monument has been sustainably preserved since 1991.
