The SPORTS ARENA structure is of modular design, allowing:

  • DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS
  • INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
  • DESIGN WITH A SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, ranging from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
  • CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.

It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of the SPORTS ARENA structure are:

MATERIALS
Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Large vertical folding doors for aircraft / Vertical folding doors for vehicles / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Supporting surface Plinth not required
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfaces Steel nails driven into the ground
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC sheeting, the cover may be in:
