Fire Protection for Latin Americas Tallest Building
The Yachthouse Residence Club is a residential complex of high luxury flats, composed of two twin towers located in Balneário Camboriú, in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Each of the two towers is 281 metres high, with a total of 81 floors and 120,000 m² of constructed area. It is a realization of the Pasqualotto & GT Group, with Pininfarina office design and is currently the tallest building in Latin America.
On each floor, there are two apartments with spectacular views on the sea and the natural forest. In order to move the residents and their guests, the buildings are equipped with a total of 17 elevators. There are five high-performance elevators in each tower, which travel from the ground floor to the 78th floor, the last floor of flats, in an impressive 50 seconds.
Another particularity of the Yachthouse Building is its sustainability, because the project is the only one in Latin America not to use brick, only concrete and glass. The curve of the glass façade has the purpose to reflect the sea and the sky, making the building naturally part of the environment. Both buildings will be protected by two redundant and modular SecuriFire 3000 fire detection systems with over 4’000 SecuriStar MCD 573X combined smoke and heat detectors. 14 early warning aspirating smoke detectors SecuriSmoke ASD will be installed in the elevator shafts and emergency stairs and 16 high-speed rate-of-rise SecuriSens ADW linear heat detectors are monitoring the garages.
