What applications are they used for?
Retractable tunnels are one of our most popular products. Designed and manufactured in Europe, our tunnel solutions provide a perfect versatile solution to a range of applications. We explore some of our customers projects in this article.
1. Sports Stadiums
When you think about retractable tunnels, this is what you think, right? Players running through a branded tunnel at a sports stadium and bursting onto the field to frenzied excitement from the crowds. And you’d be right, our client base includes many player tunnels across sports such as: football, soccer, rugby, athletics and indoors at basketball stadiums.
But it’s not just entry onto the field that is covered. Read how the Chicago Cubs used retractable tunnels to create a safe entry from the player car park into the stadium, hence allowing private and safe passageway for the players and their families on game days.
