Membrane architecture is the most common product used for Grandstand coverage. The “Gerry-Weber” Stadium grandstand required 22 membrane panels to cover the Center court, her came our membrane architecture into play, where the panels were fixed to tubular steel framework a with constant depth of 28 meters. The membrane of this membrane architecture project consists of highly translucent material which was developed especially for the tennis stadium and its individual light conditions.

Membrane architecture projects for seating areas are an imperative part for places, which require a four season viewing time.
