Vicaima equips modern building for fire brigade in the Azores


Company doors enhance the security and operability of the new facility.

Located on the island of São Miguel, in the Azores, the Povoação Fire Brigade assigned Vicaima to equip their new facilities. The brand’s solutions included in the newly constructed building, play a fundamental role in providing an efficient response to daily occurrences, contributing to the security of the space.

For the several rooms of the building, where fire resistance is an indispensable requirement, the Portaro® EI30 and EI60 were chosen. These solutions, which comprise door, frame and accessories, are certified by accredited international organisations and comply with the maximum protection and intensive use requirements which are a naturally existing condition within any Fire Brigade.

For the remaining common areas, it was decided to go for the Portaro® Sliding, an option distinguished by its versatility and the optimisation of spaces, which is a highly important factor given the need for quick and agile mobility of the entire team in emergency situations.

In the process of picking the materials for this project, Oak Dekordor® HD was chosen. This is a highly resistant and durable laminate, which are essential features to withstand daily use, given the expected intensive use of these facilities. Furthermore, its wood look pattern offers a classic and timeless twist, which easily adapts to any decor style.

As part of the growing global environmental concerns, and consecutively contributing to reference projects, Vicaima offers its vast range of solutions certified by FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®), an organisation that fosters responsible forest management.

Acknowledged for its high-performance solutions, the brand thus contributes to a new project reflecting greater efficiency in the operationalisation of resources and promptness in replying to emergency situations faced by the local population.
