Palram To Roof Olympic Stadium
Palram, the parent company
of Suntuf, Inc., won a
tender to supply the roofing of
the main Olympic Stadium in
The 90,000 seat stadium
is being constructed especially
for the 2004 Olympic
Games. The 24,000 square
meter roof will be constructed from 12 mm thick PALSUN®
UV2 Solar Olympic hard coated polycarbonate sheets.
Palram developed a special product specifically suited
to the local climatic conditions and the unique, original
architectural design of the stadium. A major feature is
that over 50% of solar heat energy will be reflected,
important considering that many of the events will take
place under the hot Greek summer sun.
The sheets will be manufactured at the Palram
Polycarb facility located in Doncaster, England. Progress
on the project can be viewed online at www.stadia.gr/oaka-new.html.
