  • 38 years after the Munich Olympic Games, the mythical Olympiahalle still holds many international sporting and cultural events as well as concerts performed by the greatest popstars in the world.

    Classified a historical monument, the 15,000 spectator capacity Olympiahalle was completely overhauled in 2010, including construction of a new double membrane roof structure.
    The unique performance characteristics of Précontraint 1002 S2 composite material proved convincing for the internal membrane.
    – remarkable dimensional stability and excellent tearing strength provided by Précontraint Serge Ferrari patented technology,
    – aesthetic durability thanks to the S2 surface treatment to give greater resistance to soiling,
    – high degree of strength imposed by temperature variations,
    – Euroclass B-s2,d0 fire rating
