An innovative Canopy for the new bus station in Aalst, Belgium was manufactured and installed by PolyProducts. Solico was responsible for the engineering of this challenging project. This is a truly innovative project which shows that composites are not only very durable and strong but can look good as well.

An innovative translucent composite canopy for the new bus station in Aalst

Why are composites used here?

Low maintenance
Steel structures typically require periodic maintenance such as conservation and paint systems to prevent corrosion. Composites are not susceptible to corrosion, resulting in lower Life-cycle costs.

Freedom of geometry
Double curved shapes are easily produced in composite materials at almost no extra cost. For production of limited series the relatively low moulding costs are an additional benefit.
