EMV Horizon glazed partitions for an historical auctionhouse

Drouot Auction Rooms are a linchpin on the French and international art market. As part of the 2010 summer renovations, the Du Rivau firm of architects oversaw fire safety and fitting-out work, particularly with the installation of a 90-minute fire curtain between the first and second stories of the current passageway. Boullet was awarded the fire-resistant glass/joinery works package and came up with a wholly innovative solution for 90 minutes’ worth of fire resistance: the installation of edge-to-edge glass partitions with no intermediate columns.
