Ghent / Belgium
Velodrome Eddy Merckx
The architect (Van Acker & Partners cbva, Gent) chose a PVC membrane of 1.2 mm because it has a fire resistance Broof(t1). On the 12,000 m² roof the membrane is mechanically fixed.
Fire safety during the implementation and fire resistance afterwards were very important considerations. Installation without a naked flame was required therefore the roofer chose a self-adhesive vapour control layer, a mechanically fixed PIR insulation and a mechanically fixed roofing membrane.
The roof had to meet the standard ENV 1187-1 and the membrane meets this standard regardless of the surface.
Year of construction: 2005
