Macalloy Tension Bars Support Canopy Roof of Sheikh Khalifa Sports City Grandstand, Bahrain

Macalloy Tension Bars/ Tie Rods were used in a design and architectural capacity in the creation of this unique building. The Macalloy products were used within the roof of the building and aid the support of the stadium.

Macalloy tension bars are used on the tensile fabric roof of the Sheikh Khalifa Sports City Grandstand. The tie rods were used as stays to support the roof structure.

The grandstand consists of a main grandstand, multipurpose sports hall and swimming pool. The grandstand has a capacity for 3,600 spectators.
