New building in a high-security storage facility for art

New building in a high-security storage facility for art

Connected directly to the Luxembourg International Airport, a logistics centre unique in the European Union was completed in 2014. Works of art and other valuables are stored and managed in temperature- and moisture-controlled rooms in Luxembourg Freeport within an area of 21,000 square metres spread over four floors. The construction of this highly unusual building was subject to strict requirements, especially regarding noise control and fire protection. Tested for their suitability, 167 products from 36 MÜPRO product groups were installed to comply with these two requirements alone.


Special requirements
  • Fastening elements for pipelines needed to be fire-protected, corrosion-resistant and insulated against noise.
  • Noise control and fire protection elements required superior certificates of suitability since requirements for this project were higher than those specified in DIN standards.

Successful completion
  • Application engineers at MÜPRO Luxembourg produced the required functional support system solutions on a 2D level with the help of an own, in-house CAD planning programme.
  • Products from the modular fire-, noise- and corrosion-tested MÜPRO support system range were used, such as 40/60 MPC support channels, which are easy to fit using girder cleats with no drilling or welding required.
  • The combination of channels with pipe clamps, slide guides or anchor points created a sturdy supporting structure, ideally adapted to the structural conditions on site.
  • These were fitted using support elements with the DÄMMGULAST yellow vibration control lining.
  • PHONOLYT anchor points were used to provide acoustic decoupling to reduce noise below the permitted threshold values specified in DIN standard 4109 by at least 5 dB(A).
  • Escape routes were secured by calculating the absolute maximum load bearing capacity in the support structure under fire load as per F30 and F90 requirements and the estimated, anticipated deformation of the installation.
