Hydro Extrusion donated two modern and high-performance products from the Hydro system to renovate the “Casa de Metal”, a new cultural center of the Brazilian Association of Metallurgy, Materials and Mining (ABM), in Campo Belo, São Paulo, SP. The modernization of the space includes the “Esplendoor” lines, on the main access doors and emergency exit doors, and the “Elegance Mirror” line, on all the facades of the space. These two lines are complete solutions for any architectural requirement and, in addition to the aesthetic benefits, provide more security and better acoustics for the project.
“For this renovation, we developed an exclusive project, made to measure so that the original characteristics of the building were preserved. All the frames were produced by the Hydro C-Tech Technological Center, located at the unit in Utinga, SP”, says Paulo Gentile, Product Development coordinator at Hydro Extrusion.
With free access and open to the population, the space opened on May 3, occupies an area of over 700 square meters in the ABM building. At Casa de Metal, there will be spaces for art exhibitions and workshops, as well as a library, theater and cinema. There will also be a permanent exhibition of items, documents and an artistic and historical bibliographic collection, thus composing a scenario to safeguard the memory of the mining, metallurgy and materials industry in Brazil, serving as a source of studies and research.
