Vicaima make an entrance with first European Peninsula Hotel
Portuguese door specialist, Vicaima was selected to provide joinery solutions for The Peninsula Paris Hotel, which is the first hotel of the HSH Group (Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels) in Europe. Exclusively designed for this project, the brief included doors, frames, skirting boards, panels and technical shafts, with tailor made detailing.
The luxurious and historic, Palace Category, The Peninsula Paris Hotel has 200 rooms, 34 suites and was launched in August. Built close to the Arc de Triomphe, this important nineteenth century building has been given a meticulous renovation, blending old world charm with modern innovation to outstanding effect.
The Vicaima Portaro® FD30 AC46dB was selected for the room entrances. This high performance solution presents the door and frame assembly in a single piece, exclusively developed and certified with constructive specifications to meet the requirements of this project. For this development, Portaro® FD30 single and door pairs were also supplied for the corridors, and Portaro® FD30 AC41dB pairs for the technical shafts, these being highly effective products with regard to fire resistance and acoustic performance. Matching with the decoration and glamour of this hotel is the design of the Vicaima doors themselves, with flush doors and solid wood customized frames, in an acajou and specific high gloss finish. These solutions combined with the new design, luxury and comfort standards, allied to the authentic period and splendour of this historic building in which they were located.
"The fact that we were chosen to supply the new hotel of the HSH Group is synonymous with quality and prestige. The high-level requirements of the hotel chain led us to carry out technical monitoring from the initial project plan to installation, thus creating the perfect opportunity to carry out extensive research before submitting exclusive and tailor made proposals. We invested our time in training and preparing a specialised team for the production and installation of the products, in accordance with legal requirements. This group originates in Hong Kong and this project is, without doubt, a sign of international expansion of the brand’s prestige”, says Arlindo Costa Leite, President of Vicaima.
In order to exceed the expectations of this hotel, Vicaima products were subjected to audits and monitoring of the project which was carried out through constant inspections, both during production and during product installation. The Peninsula Paris Hotel is the tenth such venture of the HSH hotel group, one of the most luxurious in the international market.
