PLAZA DEL TORO DE VITORIA / SPAIN

SKYLIGHT & RETRACTABLE ROOF // FLAT SOLID POLYCARBONATE PANEL

Bullfighting is a national sport for the Spaniards and the Iradier Arena / Plaza Del Toros De Vitoria-Gasteiz is a perfect example of melding tradition and modern architecture. The all-weather and multi-purpose arena was fitted with a clear retractable roof. Clear Palsun panels were specified for the roof in order to maintain the arena’s inner atmosphere with the roof in either closed or retracted position. Palsun combines ultra-high impact resistance with clarity, making it the material of choice for demanding applications. Palsun is virtually unbreakable, yet it is transparent as glass at less than half its weight. It is ideal for barrel vault roofing, skylights, architectural roofing and glazing.
