VMZINC® used for Derry centre of sporting excellence

The £12.7m Foyle Arena, designed by architects Samuel Stevenson & Sons, features VMZINC single and double lock standing seam roofs and façades in QUARTZ-ZINC® and QUARTZ-ZINC PLUS®. Funded by Derry City and Strabane District Councils, it will be a centre of excellence for climbing, judo and wrestling, though its extensive facilities include a 25m swimming pool with movable floor, a separate children's pool and twelve floodlit, synthetic five-a-side football pitches. VMZINC PLUS has a protective underside coating which enables a warm roof, non-ventilated construction to be used.
