Year 2014
Location Santa Rosa - Philippines
Fabric Fluomax Type 1
Quantity 1,000 m²

In Santa Rosa in the Philippines, a type 1 membrane of the Sioen Fluomax range was used to cover the Go Zone Basketball Court. Santa Rosa is situated in the province of Laguna, Philippines. With a fast-growing population of nearly 400.000, it is the second-largest local government unit in Laguna.

Santa Rosa was initially known for the Coca-Cola and Toyota manufacturing plants in its industrial estates. Sioen textiles are featured in many places around Santa Rosa, amongst others covering the Brent gymnasium.

The Go Zone Basketball Court is an outdoor area that is protected by sun shading structures, to keep the outdoor feeling. The installation of a steel arch to cover the basketball surface is stylish. The shape gives a graceful and elegant impression and is sometimes referred to as a saddle or a bow-shaped roof. Manufacturer of the membrane is Rize Innovations, a local specialist in tensile architecture structures and sun shading in the Philippines.

The choice for Sioen Fluomax type 1 is an obvious one for these kinds of smaller tensioned projects. The lightweight 725gsm, low-wick, anti-bacterial, UV stabilised, fire-retardant PVC coated polyester fabric is treated on both sides with a directly weldable PVDF topcoat. The Fluomax range by Sioen holds high-performance textiles designed for tensile architecture.
