Description

The textile roof over the stand and the terrace has a width of 12m and a length of 54m. Four 13m high masts are placed at a distance of 18m in the longitudinal direction.
The anchorage of the cable, running in the longitudinal direction over the high points of the masts, assures the stability in the longitudinal direction.
Every 6m a beam spans in the transverse direction. The loads are taken by the connection at the top and the back side of the stand.
The high points (every 6m) of the membrane are attached to the longitudinal cable. The anti-clastic membrane shape is tensioned between the high points and the transverse beams of the roof: the snow is carried by the 'snow bearing direction', while the upward wind is taken by the 'tensioning' direction.
The used membrane is PTFE coated glass.
