– Horizontal locking systems needed to be installed between floors due to the limited use of the public road.
Facade containment work is one of the biggest challenges in construction. This type of work is normally carried out in very old buildings to be demolished where only the facade is maintained. These facades are subject to the effect of the wind if they are not supported from another surface.
The Torres Shorflex HD system enables you to provide this support in complete safety.
In the specific case of this building, there was a need to maintain the outer walls and part of the inner walls due to the fact it is a historic building in the city centre.
The fact this project was executed in the city centre led to substantial limitations with regard to the use of space, and permission was granted to install one support tower only.
Thus, horizontal locking systems were installed between floors, which proved to be a highly demanding feat of engineering.
