Ghelamco Arena Ghent
Reflecting roofing membranes
Ecology and design were very important for the Ghelamco Arena Ghent. For the 13.000 qm roof the architect (Bontinck Architecture and Engineering) chose the ecological reflecting roofing membrane produced by an ESWA member company. This roofing membrane has an extremely high reflection of sunlight which has a positive influence on the climate inside the arena.
The 1.5 mm thick PVC membrane is fixed mechanically onto the steel deck. The architect also had the future in mind when choosing this membrane as there is a potential to install solar panels at a later date. In this case the reflecting white roofing membrane would result in a double energy saving, the membrane also having a positive influence (+4%) on the output of the solar panels.
Year of construction: 2013
