The coating of the SkyWay Montebianco interiors in Courmayeur, nearby Aosta, is one of the most recent architectural applications.
Skyway is one of the fastest cable cars in the world, accompanying the visitor in the suggestive landscape of Mont Blanc with its three stations, each located at a different altitude.
Designed by Studio Progetti Cillara Rossi, the cable car is perfectly integrated in the surrounding environment: the “green” DNA of the structure, thanks to its high technological content and reduction of footprint and energy consumption, is indeed one of the project foundations.
For coating the walls of SkyWay Montebianco LAMINAM ceramic slabs sized 1000x3000 mm, thickness 3 mm, of the series Fokos, with finishing Sale and Rena were chosen, for harmoniously integrating into the environment and landscape where the cable car is located; the surfaces of this series are characterised by a soft and tactile feeling which is attractive and almost velvety.
The Laminam ceramic slabs have been cut into modules, in order to adapt to the sinuous and wrap-around curvilinear walls that distinguish the SkyWay Montebianco interiors.
Properties of the Laminam slabs:
• Resistant to scratches and deep abrasion
• Resistant to mildew and fungi
• Resistant to stains
• Resistant to chemicals
• Resistant to heat and fire
• Resistant to UV rays
• Intrinsic hygienic quality
• Low maintenance and easy cleaning
• Easy processing
