MONTPARNASSE STATION. FRANCE
RAISED ACCESS FLOOR FOR TRAIN STATION
Montparnasse Train Station is a landmark of the Parisian city as part of one of the six major train stations that house the city. Inaugurated in 1840, this station has evolved along with the city throughout history, reconverting and adapting to the new mobility needs that cities demand. In this area, mobility has marked each step of the major reforms that the railway station has received, up to its current point with 28 service routes and 15 platforms housed in three different modules: Main Station, Pasteur Station, and Vaugirard Station.
In the last adaptation that was made to different rooms of the current Montparnasse Main Station, Polygroup had the opportunity to participate by providing a Raised Access Floor System Gamaflor PAC. This raised floor system was chosen due to its great versatility of adaptation to existing projects such as this railway station. The total weight of the raised floor system is lighter that of many other raised floor systems found currently in the market, due to the high-density chipboard core, without losing the load and performance benefits of the system. In 2002 the station reported a flow of 50 million users, so all new material that is incorporated into the station must guarantee optimal performance capable of meeting the demands of use presented by the Montparnasse station.
Polygroup’s extensive experience in international projects has eased the collaboration with this french institution, making the technical answer for the resolution of practical problems easier.
