Erection of the steel structure has started

At the beginning of November, the erection of the steel structure for the new back straight “Am Böllenfalltor”, the venue of the SV Darmstadt 98, has started.

Donges SteelTec manufactures, supplies and assembles the steel roof construction for the new back straight in the Merck Stadium, Darmstadt.

Around 400 tons of steel are required for the construction of the new grandstand roof. The roof structure consists of 40 m long trusses that converge at the tips in a V-shape. The anchoring is carried out per axis via two supports and a tension anchorage, which are optimally designed for the changing stresses generated by the wind load. The main column stands on a solid steel component, which is concreted into the upper sawtooth beam of the grandstand. The scope of services also includes the roof and wall cladding.
