NATURE AND TECHNOLOGY
Located in Manaus in the heart of the beautiful Brazilian rainforest, Arena Amazônia is designed to meet stringent sustainability standards. Around 95% of the materials used in the construction were reclaimed from the previous stadium. The distinctive new arena that was one of the FIFA World Cup 2014 venues makes extensive use of Elite Reiling System products. These include glass railings, baluster systems and handrails. The handrails and railings run between stadium areas and are used in staircases and exits.
Faced with stringent requirements, Elite Reiling System’s record in other stadium projects spoke volumes. The construction company installed nearly 8,000 metres of Elite Reiling System products in the new arena. That included Elite Reiling System Easy Glass® Slim, Easy Glass® 3kN glass balustrades and Q-line baluster railings. The railings were combined with cross bars and various handrails.
The Arena Amazônia represents an inspiring achievement. Elite Reiling System products, with their clean, contemporary design, are a perfect match for its unique architecture. The city of Manaus clearly provided a splendid arena with a perfect view for Football matches, concerts and other events. All will benefit from impeccable safety and an uninterrupted view.
