Some History: In the footsteps of Gustave Eiffel

RPM Belgium Eiffel tower waterproofing and flooring works

Born on 5 December 1832, Gustave Eiffel was a French Civil Engineer and Architect. He graduated from the prestigious école Centrale des Arts et Manufactures in France. Gustave made various bridges for the French Railway Network. He became world-famous after building the Eiffel Tower for the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1889. He contributed to numerous other well-known projects such as the Statue of Liberty in New York.

Tribute to a great engineer: RPM Belgium Vandex[Visit:] is proud to have assisted in the preservation of Gustave Eiffel's legacy by providing the Eiffel Bridge in Viano do Castelo with a Matacryl specialized Waterproofing Membrane, making sure the bridge deck is in shape again for a long time.

Furthermore, in 2013 RPM supplied the Eiffel Tower with a very effective flooring solution capable of resisting the extremely high foot traffic of nearly 7 million visitors a year that it is subject to.

By completing these two projects, RPM has contributed to preserving the great architectural and civil engineering works that Gustave Eiffel has left humanity.
