Modern landscape design with full-locked coil ropes

The Chinese city of Suzhou is known for its modern landscape design, and its new sports park is going to make the city even more attractive. The park comprises three elements: a stadium with an athletics track and space for up to 45,000 spectators, an indoor swimming pool with a capacity of 3000 spectators and a multi-function hall which can accommodate 15,000 spectators.
With its open ring-rope roof and an impressive span of 250 meters, the new stadium forms the centerpiece of the complex. In total, FATZER will supply 256 ropes with a total length of 9000 meters for the single-layer steel rope construction with membrane roofing.
The full locked coil ropes have diameters of 100, 110 and 120 mm and the spiral strand ropes have a diameter of 26 mm. At 221 meters the ring ropes are the longest single components in the roof.
The membrane roof of the swimming pool is supported by 124 steel ropes with a diameter of 40 mm and a total length of 11,000 meters. Overall, 525 tons of steel rope and HYEND end connections are being produced for the two projects.
