Ceptual® transforms the changing rooms and gyms of the Lagardère Paris Racing Club


The Lagardère Paris Racing Club belongs to the Lagardère Communication Group and symbolizes the passion for sport of the Parisian elite. The club has around 20,000 members who practise several sports disciplines—11 club athletes competed at the London 2012 Olympics.

Through Ceptual®—the brand that creates materials and advanced solutions for architecture—the I+D department of Pontevedresa Group developed glass applications for the renovation of the changing rooms and gyms at the club headquarters in the Bois de Boulogne, alongside the new Louis Vuitton Foundation.

In February 2015, the new changing rooms, equipped with 160 TemperedGlassPlus® (TGP) glass and steel shower cubicles, were delivered to the official headquarters of the Parisian club. The TGP was especially treated for these areas of particularly heavy footfall.

The mirrors and red glass on the walls of the enormous gym expand the space, equipping it with an unparalleled feeling of openness and prominence.

A new generation of stronger, more reliable and lighter tempered glass

  • Sixteen times more resistant to bending than granite.
  • More resistant to compression than cast steel.
  • Capable of going beyond theoretical strength limits.

TGP technology has a proven capacity for producing glass materials with a level of resistance to bending that exceeds the theoretical limit required by legislation.

The culmination of decades of continuous improvements

Since introducing the first tempered glass furnace in northern Spain, in 1989, Pontevedresa Group has concentrated on stretching the boundaries of conventional techniques. These efforts culminated in 2015 with the development of TGP technology, the most advanced modular line for tempered glass in Europe, the first of its kind built with European technology, according to Pontevedresa Group specifications.
