Fleetwood Town FC Training Facilities

This interesting installation at the training ground of Fleetwood Town Football Club is an excellent example of how companies, groups and organisations can use these systems to truly innovate.

A restaurant overlooking the training pitch means fans can watch the team train whilst enjoying a meal at the facilities own restaurant, The Crossbar and Grill. The facilituies are called Poolfoot Farm Sports and Leisure Complex and are a nine million pound facility that also hosts live sports viewing via screens and can be rented out when Fleetwood are not using it to people who wish to play on the exceptionally high quality pitches.

The Med Viva Pavilion model was chosen, due to the ability to let in as much light as possible, be easily filled in with glass, and lean against the existing structure. Six systems were installed next to each other, creating a sheltered area that covers an area with a length thirty metres and width of six. These systems were also fitted with an LED lighting system, and infrared heaters, meaning the system can be used all year round. Also installed were drop blinds and glass sliding doors to enable the system to be partially opened up during the warmer months. The principle of the Med Viva is a tough fabric triple layer roof which is further supprted by aluminium struts when extended fully. The roof is extended by the cable pullet system built into the side channels and it senures the fabric is brought out and ends up as taught as possible to deal with the rain and wind. LED lights are built into the supporting lauminium struts and all controlled by remote control handsets or an app.

The installation itself required eight days of work for three people. Special profiles were designed to allow the structure to be fixed directly to the restaurant building without issue, and the system allows for a fantastic 180 degree view of the surrounding area.
