The team tasked with refurbishing Abidjan’s landmark Sofitel Hôtel Ivoire, lead by architect Pierre Fakhoury have selected Huet to supply acoustic and fire-rated doorsets for all guest rooms. Renovation of the 25 story hotel started late in 2011, with work on the 168 bedrooms, 40 suites, and 124m2 top floor Presidential Suite due to start shortly.
Huet’s ISA DX 4261 doorset was specified not only for its Rw 42 dB acoustic-rating and FD 60 fire-rating but also for compliance with high-rise building regulations. The bespoke finish comprises Egger “Burgundy Natural Walnut” and contrasting Egger “Alabaster” laminates with frames of white lacquer. Other specification features include a highly original pyramidal threshold, concealed Dorma ITS 96 door closer, and cut-out for Vingcard RFID electromagnetic lock.
