The Bank of Beirut was founded in Lebanon in 1963 and now operates more than 90 branches worldwide. In recent years, the bank has been focused on transmitting its identity as a dynamic, experienced Lebanese bank, with a global and above all modern reach.
This modernity-oriented concept was also conveyed in the construction of the Faytroun branch. In 2016, Baldassar supplied the pressed grating that was used to build and cover the perimeter walls of this financial institution building, designed by architect Bernard Khoury.
The steel combines aesthetics and a professional image with protective properties: in fact, the pressed grating wall ensures solidity and robustness to protect the bank from any attacks.
Furthermore, the grating’s truss frame allows external light to naturally enter the structure’s interior (Baldassar pressed grill, S235JR (UNI EN 10025) steel, M. 33X33, B.B. 30X2 with 10×2 cross bar connection, banded with a T-profile and hot-dip galvanised in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 1461:2009 Standard).
