Ivry-sur-Seine, France

Stainless steel net and concrete

Silos 13 Ivry/Paris

The distribution centre and headquarters of a cement company is situated on a very small spot in the east of Paris, right next to the ring road and the Austerlitz station. In tune with the project’s contractor, the architects relied on concrete to promote the skills of the company and the many qualities concrete has to offer.

Industrial charme with Webnet: The staircases of the silos and the balcony railings rely on Jakob Rope System’s Webnet as a safety net. The stainless steel wire rope net chimes with the architectural concept and completes the plain industrial modernism of the building. At the same time, it is a reliable and efficient safety net.
