A sports park that connects

Advert by IAKS member Polytan

Mülheim an der Ruhr is surprisingly green – the first mining-free city in the Ruhr area. The city has invested a lot of money in drawing young and old leisure athletes outdoors. Sportpark Styrum will be a multi-generational and family-friendly sports and leisure park. At the centre of Sportpark Styrum is a multifunctional open-air hall, constructed by McArena. This type of hall was chosen for its multifunctional use, year-round in all weathers, and its high cost-effectiveness. It has no need for a heating system and is illuminated with LED spotlights. A photovoltaic system with an output of 100 kWp is installed on the roof, which generates more energy than Sportpark Styrum itself consumes.

The robust, low-maintenance playing field is sustainable too. It features Poligras Mega CoolPlus, a fully artificial turf system that is suitable for multifunctional use, including football. The surface is dense and uniform, ensuring that the ball does not experience any unintended changes of direction. The Polytan CoolPlus function prevents the surface from heating up too quickly or intensely in the summer. Directly adjacent to the Tengelmann Arena is a partially covered outdoor sports area. It features our all-round floor covering, PolyPlay S in medium grey. The seamless surface was installed directly on site by our specialists: a 25-mm-thick elastic layer made of recycled rubber material, followed by a 10-mm-thick layer of EPDM granulate. This construction ensures consistent cushioning and deformation values. PolyPlay S is also slip-resistant and water-permeable. As a result, the playing field dries quickly and can be used year-round in all weathers. In the calisthenics area, we have installed a PolyPlay FS 2.5 fall protection surface in the matching colour. The cushioning surface has an overall thickness of 132 mm, which is optimally adapted to the fall height.
