The management of the project by CAME

The Férrié pavilion, with its unique design, embraces the curves of the Eiffel Tower thanks to a glass and steel structure. The double curved glass facades offer an entry with a unique "butterfly" door for the access of the pavilion. The architect in charge of the renovation, Alain Moatti, mandated by the Société d’exploitation (Operating company), which was at the initiative of this ambitious project, wanted to automate the “butterfly” door, and CAME was proud to be selected - accepting the challenge and fulfilling it.

With it's strong reputation in the automation of doors and gates, CAME's teams have been fully invested in this project, creating a customized system at the height of this exceptional project, automating the 2 "butterfly" doors of almost 700kg each, while adapting to the site constraints and especially to the unique opening on 17% inclined facades.
