A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF FIRE PERFORMANCE EXCELLENCE
1. European Investment Bank, Luxembourg, Kirchberg |Linth-Limmern pumped-storage power plant, Switzerland
On the wall and ceiling penetrations Münzig & Kuhn used ArmaFlex Protect. ‘We were really pleased to see how easy it is to install ArmaFlex Protect. Even installing sheets on larger pipe diameters is much faster than the time-consuming seals with cellular glass. The vapour-proof interface with the pipe insulation is created using the standard ArmaFlex installation procedure. This was our first application of ArmaFlex Protect, and I’m sure it was the first of many,’ commented Uwe Kuhn.
2. Linth-Limmern pumped-storage power plant, Switzerland
One of the most spectacular projects of our times is currently underway in the Glarus Alps: the “Linthal 2015” project will increase the performance of the Linth-Limmern pumped-storage power plant many times over and allow flexible electricity generation. The flexible fire protection system ArmaFlex Protect was used for pipe penetrations.
