Performing at an All- Star Level

Each year, millions of sports fans venture out to stadiums and arenas across the country. They do so for the experience of the event; to create a lasting memory. And a major part of that fan experience is the venue itself.

Today’s sporting venues are becoming more complex and more aesthetically pleasing, while the roof has transformed from simply being a necessity into a design element.

Sika Sarnafil’s experience is unmatched with nearly 30 years of performance in the stadium and arena field. Our flexible design options range from cool, white thermoplastic roofs to custom colors and even impressive roof logos. We offer the versatility and capability to become your stadium’s star player.

High Performance Inside, Proven Performance on Top

Sika Sarnafil’s roofing and waterproofing systems have provided dependable protection on facilities around the world.

Roofing systems play a vital role in the protection of a building. Nature’s elements - such as high winds, ponding water, and ultraviolet rays – can wreak havoc on a roof. These everyday occurrences can eventually lead to leaks, building damage, costly repairs, and possibly even premature roof failure.

Selecting a roofing system should be a decision based on the best long-term value. Actual performance in the field is the only true test of a roofing system’s quality, and billions of square feet of Sika membrane have performed exceptionally well in a variety of climates for 50+ years. In fact, many installations are still proving their worth after more than 30 years of service.

Sika has more experience than any other North American thermoplastic membrane manufacturer. Our versatile single-ply membrane systems boast features like unrivaled longevity, exceptional energy efficiency, recyclability, and minimal maintenance.

The Case for Retractable Roofs for Stadium

More and more stadiums are adapting to combat the weather so they can keep attendance numbers up. Retractable roofs are perfect for areas with inclement weather, extreme heat or extreme cold during the respective sports seasons. These innovative roofs allow for playing of traditionally outdoor sports in more favorable conditions, as well as aid the comfort of spectators.
