The Fort Island in IJmuiden (Holland) is located in the middle of the harbour entrance. The Fort Island IJmuiden Foundation decided to install stairs, platforms, fences and special barriers at several locations on the island. The main reason was to change the Fort Island into an accessible and safe place for tourists to visit.

H&S Nederland was contracted to deliver and install everything necessary to change the Fort Island into a safe attraction.
