Acerinox, via Inoxcenter Canarias, has supplied material to Monpex Group for the construction of the Gran Canaria Arena purpose-built for the FIBA Basketball World Cup recently held in Spain.
Stainless steel was the key material selected, once the characteristics and benefits of this material were tested and observed in situ, transforming it into the 'must have' requirement throughout the entire project. Stainless steel greatest presence is within the facility itself. This material was used for double railings (including those for disabled access), cladding of fire doors, collision and crowd safety barriers, that, combined with high resistance rolled glass, both comply with safety regulations as well as allowing for an elegant and high quality design providing clear vision from any angle. Stainless steel endows the Gran Canaria Arena with a unique and singular character.
It is this kind of attention to detail that contributes to making the Gran Canaria Arena a global reference point with regard to sports installations.
