The new Lords Cricket Ground Warner Stand’s innovative design includes a semi-translucent fabric roof supported by a steel and timber structure, which is the first of its kind in the country.
The fabric roof covers an area of 850m² and consists of 17 PTFE and 8 Tensotherm panels. Tensotherm is a composite material comprising a PTFE fibreglass fabric membrane exterior skin, a translucent blanket embedded with a revolutionary aerogel thermal and acoustic insulation and a PTFE fibreglass acoustic and vapour barrier liner.
CAN technicians employed a combination of fall restraint, fall arrest, industrial rope access techniques and MEWPs to access the roof and install the new fabric roof. This approach enabled a relatively small team to complete the installation cost-effectively and in a short time frame.
