The museum is built on the site of the historic Fort Saint-Jean in Marseille as the city was designated European Capital of Culture in 2013. The 130 meters long footbridge connects the fort with the museum. The museum was designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti and represents a cube of 15,000 square meters. We supplied the stainless steel bars which serve as bracing and are visible in the restaurant on the last floor.
Our SS460 grade is specially treated to resist corrosion in aggressive environments, such as saline or polluted atmosphere.
Further advantages of this grade are the high mechanical values compared to traditional stainless steel 316 or 304, not forgetting the high impact test values which are required in seismic or cold areas.
These cold threaded bars which are manufactured on our machine 120 T increase the strength properties of our rods.
