More than ten years ago, over 30,000 m2 of SHEERFILL® Ultralux Architectural Membrane was manufactured to top a new stadium in La Plata, Argentina. For various reasons, the stadium was built, but the roof was never installed until last year.
The roof features a unique style, a double cable dome which provides a figure eight shape, was added to complete this beautiful stadium. Ultralux is a high translucency architectural membrane providing about 25% light transmission as opposed to standard products whch provide only 10 to 16% light transmission.
After some 12 years, the stadium is now complete and looks amazing.
Ultralux is manufactured by Saint-Gobain in the Merrimack, New Hampshire plant.
