The mountain region of Kopaonik is Serbia’s largest ski resort and is visited by around 500,000 people each year. To help the many visitors get to their ski lanes, a ski tunnel complete with moving conveyor belt was required. The design is attractive, modern and functional. Around 900 people every hour now use it at a conveyor belt speed of up to 0.8m per second. Although it is currently 75 metres long, the tunnel can be extended to up to 300 metres if required. Polycasa was approached by the outer panel manufacturer, Oracalon, on behalf of the ski tunnel producer, Advertski. 317.5m2 of PC (around 45 sheets) were supplied by Polycasa to Advertski and they put it to use with a great effect. The craftsmen who were responsible for bending and assembly were extremely pleased with the behaviour of the material in temperatures as low as -18 C.
