Opened in January 2017, the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena is the new flagship facility at the National Sports Campus of Dublin. In addition to two dividing curtains, Elan Inventa supplied the Dublin arena with 6 blocks of telescopic stands. IAKS member Elan Inventa is also supporting the 25th IAKS congress as gold sponsor.
All of the 6 new blocks are transportable using airbags. The risers are metal, which provides a really nice appearance of the stands. One block can be divided into halves and thus renders it possible to transport it out of the hall with a forklift and use it in a gymnastic hall, which is located in 200 m distant building.
The fully accessible, multi-sport and multi-purpose arena, is the newest of its kind in Europe. Built to the highest world class standards and specifications, it will ensure that Ireland has the best facility for indoor sports and events, which can be used by Irish sporting bodies, high performance athletes and the general public.
For the first time Elan Inventa manufactured the fastening of the transport block in a niche with a steel cable, which can be released in order to move the block out of the niche.
