AMEX Stadium, Trilite Ultra GRP

Visit the news item to view the video.

Some 55 tonnes of Trilite Ultra GRP sheet, specifically tinted to complement ‘The Seagull’s’ team colours – blue and white were installed at the AMEX Stadium, home to Brighton & Hove Albion FC.

The translucent GRP sheet was chosen to satisfy the key project requirements for light transmission, durability and colour.  David Biggs, Commercial Director commented, “In order to provide as much natural light as possible for players and fans alike, we worked closely with the architect and roofing contractor to get the sky blue tint exactly right. Trilite Ultra offers high light transmission levels while minimising distracting shadows so is perfect for sporting venues but it is unusual to tint GRP sheet on this scale. Having extensive experience of stadia projects, we were able to provide technical advice and varying samples to ensure the aesthetics of the stands, pitch and external appearance all worked together.”

The sweeping roof design and extensive use of rooflights was paramount in ensuring the stadium sat comfortably in its rural location, adjacent to a registered Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has already won a Structural Steel Design Award and is receiving much attention nationally for its striking design.

Trilite Ultra 36 is a BBA certified heavyweight sheet with SAA 1 fire grading. It incorporates an enhanced Superlife UV protective finish to minimise the harmful effects of the sun and ultra-violet radiation. Providing significantly greater safety levels than minimum requirements, it offers a 25 year non fragility classification; an important factor in its specification by roofing contractor CA Roofing Services. Read more about Trilite Ultra.
