Saint Christophe, Valle d'Aosta, Italy
System for the automation of swing gates and garage doors
In the heart of the Valle d'Aosta, Saint-Christophe is a small town set in a large hilly area just 3 km from the Region’s capital, surrounded by orchards and vineyards.
Here is a new multi-family residential complex, the result of a masterly project for redeveloping an ancient rural building by architect Roberto Rosset. During the work, the original stones were completely recovered, and the building was carefully reconstructed following the same identical fabric, shape and volume of the old house. Particular attention was paid to the balance between nature and the contemporary, using natural materials and adopting green building principles. The main part of the building was completed by the addition of a common access clad with larch planking, which recalls traditional rural buildings, linked to an underground garage.
In order to offer the inhabitants of all four units the maximum comfort when entering and leaving home, Nice automation was chosen. The work was entrusted to Multi Habitats owned by Corrado Muzzolon, a long-term Nice partner in Valle d'Aosta, who installed a complete Nice MFAB underground automation system for double gates equipped with photocells and flashing light. For access to the garage, a NiceSpinBus system was installed, which allows automation of sectional doors up to 10.5 square meters, complete with photocells and flashing light. For access control, each family unit was then equipped with Era Inti transmitters, the small, slim and colourful 2-channel transmitter, ideal for blocks of flats and multi-user installations.
