When it comes to creating large sports complexes, the building components used have to deliver top performance too. In addition to impressive span widths and a largely column-free design, sports arenas offer other challenges which have to be mastered: The building envelope must be insulated to allow energy-efficient operation. And fire protection also plays a decisive role in the selection of the optimal material.
With ROMA, sports buildings of all kinds can be built cost-efficiently, with outstanding thermal insulation and fire protection ratings. That there are no limits to human imagination in this area is demonstrated by the all-season skiing facility in Oberhof. The building is unique in central Europe, thanks to its alpine slope and biathlon‑stadium, and is a paradise for recreational and professional athletes, and was built in only 14 months. To achieve this, 5,000 m² of P140 wall panels with PVDF coating were used in construction.
The optimal insulation is not only a question of keeping the inside temperature at a constant -3° to -4° C and humidity of 80% to 100%. It is also important to keep energy consumption as low as possible. To guarantee absolute airtightness, the panels were coated with ROMAplast.
