Hangzhou Stadium, with Sunpal architectural glazing

In a challenging logistical project, Palram has shipped 15,000m2 SUNPAL® panels to China. The panels are used as skylights and sidelights designed as flower petals, within a spectacular flower-shaped sports venue in the Olympic-sized main stadium of Hangzhou Sports Park. The stadium designers, NBBJ of the US and the Chinese CCDI who, already cooperated with Palram on the Huizhou stadium in 2009. The panels, being 13.5 - 18.5m long, required a special logistical solution, these were then shipped to China in the under deck area of the cargo vessel.

PALSUN® Pool Cover Gold Coast, Australia

Palram’s PALSUN polycarbonate sheets were chosen to boost daylighting & to improve the overall atmosphere at the gold coast residential pool. Critical considerations were sheet weight and impact resistance. Palram provided all the specification details to customize the system for the application. A high-performance enclosure, sealing the transparent roof system to sliding glass doors and windows optimizes ventilation and temperature control inside the space.

Shenzhen Universiade Sport Center

The challenge was to cover the 45000sqm stadium while designing a new architectural aluminum profile system for PALSUN panels. The system supports all architectural "crazy" designs and allows for thermal expansion, 0% slope and installation convenience (modularity). The 2010 Shenzhen Universiade Sport Center was covered with Palsun 8, 10 and 12mm weighing 550 tons, solar green, triangular shaped (8 different sizes). The architect’s original design was based on another Palram system based on screw fastening therefore, suitable for rectangular panels – expansion in one direction only. Triangular panels require a solution that allows for expansion/contraction in all directions (inscribed circle).

Palram worked with the architects on Aquanation from 2012 until its completion in 2015. The specified roofing system, SUNPAL White Opal Diffuser Plus 18 mm, features a double diffuser effect to soften the transmitted natural daylight as well as the inner reflections of electric lighting during dark hours. The multiwall polycarbonate architectural panel system was integrated into the skylights along with 3 types of curved roof deck finishes. Palram provided a unique span-bar rafter system with a custom bracket design to enable this challenging installation.
