SUNTUF STADIA

SUNTUF® Stadia

Solid Profiled Polycarbonate System

SUNTUF® Stadia is a robust and durable polycarbonate panel system that is specifically designed for roofs with large spans. While other translucent cladding materials require a supporting substructure, SUNTUF® Stadia can be installed directly on the main structure.

By using SUNTUF® Stadia you can save on the metal structure and save even more on installation labor.

SUNTUF® Stadia provides excellent light transmission, impact resistance, flexibility and load capacity. The system is lightweight and very easy to fabricate and install. SUNTUF® Stadia is perfectly suited for large roofs such as sports stadia and arenas, concert halls, and logistic centers.

USE LIGHT TO ENHANCE YOUR DESIGN, DAY AND NIGHT

As an architect, you need to consider the design aesthetics of both the exterior and the interior. If there is too much transparency in your glazing material, you may compromise on privacy. In contrast, too little transparency or translucency may reduce light transmission in the interior. For these reasons, you need to consider all options to achieve exactly the look you are going for. In addition, you can't ignore other factors, such as energy efficiency.

Palram offers four different polycarbonate glazing products to meet all of your requirements. These include flat solid sheet, multi-wall sheet, single-layer corrugated sheet, and complete architectural panels systems. Palram Project Support Engineers are here to help you evaluate which solution best meets your design aspirations, efficiency and sustainability goals, and budgetary and performance requirements.

For architects, engineers and builders that need assistance evaluating their design, and developing an installation method and process for their polycarbonate architecture, our Architectural Project Support Center team is available to guide you through our array of polycarbonate roofing systems, polycarbonate wall panels and polycarbonate cladding solutions.
