New Rome Trade Fair

We – as Canobbio Textile – contributed to building the massive gangway that connects the pavilions of the New Rome Trade Fair, a demanding project measuring 1900 linear meters long.

“On a regular alternating basis, strong white steel stands rise to the sides of the gangway to support the covering tensile structure; each span consists of three elements: the first, the lower layer, consists of seven parallel strips of stainless steel sheet, standard industrial coils, coupled to the stands and left free to take the natural shape of a catenary (their static function is comparable to that of the ropes of a hanging bridge); the polyester membrane – the second element, covered with pvdf, pre-strained during assembly by means of further transverse tubular elements, which will support and protect the path from atmospheric precipitation – was placed over the coil”.
