ACS Production, Montoir de Bretagne, France
The tennis club of the municipality of Belin-Béliet (department of Gironde), founded in 1976, has a brand new tennis hall since July 2019. This project was made possible thanks to a subsidy from the French Tennis Federation and the support of the municipality.
ACS Production was commissioned to design the tensioned canvas roof. The Dlubal customer is internationally known for its expertise in the field of textile architecture (sports buildings, stadium grandstands, swimming pools, school yards, canopies, awnings, covered passages, stretch ceilings, facade cladding, etc.).
Technical details of the project
The roofing consists of a textile cover with a double curvature resting on an arch and a timber structure. The roof membrane consists of a separate module for each panel. The fabric is inserted into aluminum sections that are attached to the timber rafters. Tensioning is carried out by means of the metallic tensioning arches and a cable at one end. The membranes of the facade are continuous and fixed at their perimeter in plate-shaped groove sections, and the tarpaulins to prevent displacement are fixed to the intermediate columns.
