One of the world’s leading football clubs, Real Madrid, has started playing football at the refurbished Santiago Bernabéu stadium. The stadium has undergone a major refurbishment, one of the highlights of which is the impressive new pitch removal system. We are extremely proud to have contributed to this engineering masterpiece by providing our Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) to support the wheels of the retractable pitch panels.
12 single-track units were installed parallel to each other, with the A75 rail embedded in a concrete slab using the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® elastomer. The top of the rail is at exactly the same level as the slab.
Our Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) fulfils several purposes: it provides a very accurate, stable, aesthetic and durable guide for the 6 movable grass panels, within a fully accessible slab track to allow other events to be held while the grass is being removed.
The installation of the rail system was a secure job providing technical advice, calculations, system drawings, track components and supervision.
