GRP Roof Structure - Centerparcs Aquamundo

After many years of service, the wooden support structure of the roof of the Centerparcs Aquamundo Tropical swimming pool was no longer fit for purpose. The swimming pool environment is chemically aggressive. Even the most corrosion resistant steel types cannot cope with the temperature, humidity and chlorine fumes. GRP has very good corrosion resistance qualities and together with Buursema, Dantuma en Wegkamp and BIJL Profielen, Solico designed one of the largest single span GRP roof structures in the world to support the roof loads.

Chemical/corrosion resistance

Composite materials are resistant to a lot of chemical products such as acids, hydroxides, crude oil, etc. Corrosion resistance against salt and seawater is excellent.

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.
