FPC ITALIA and FREYSSINET PERU, a successful pair

FPC ITALIA and FREYSSINET PERÚ have conquered a large percentage of the seismic protection market in Perù. In fact a long stretch of “Via Expresa linea Amarilla” connecting eleven Districts in Lima, four important hospitals, one private university and the roadway bridge Mantaro will be seismic isolated with the Freyssinet ISOSISM® devices.
“Linea Amarilla” is an important project of VINCI HIGHWAYS in which also other companies of the group are involved.

FPC ITALIA designs, produces and tests the HDRB high damping rubber bearings, LRB lead rubber bearings and sliders sold locally by Freyssinet Perù.

The complete cycle design, production, control, sales has been done internally inside the Freyssinet Group companies in such a way to grant the products constant high quality.

Freyssinet Perù also grant the installation technical assistance on site.

The ISOSISM® isolators have been designed according to the AASHTO Standards for bridges and to the ASCE 7-10 Standards for buildings. The manufacturing in FPC RUBBER factory has been completed for all the projects. The Type tests and Factory Production Control tests have been carried out at our laboratory ISOLAB.

We received the visit of Consultants, Designers and Contractors to witness the tests and check our production/quality process.
