While electric underfloor heating systems were used only in stadiums where the winters were cold and harsh, nowadays these systems have become preferred in stadiums in many places regardless of weather conditions. In addition to stadiums, electric floor heating systems are also used in open sports fields, golf courses and athletic fields.
With electric underfloor heating systems, icing that will occur in the winter months is prevented, as well as snow accumulation in these areas in heavy snowfalls. With the heating systems, it is also ensured that the grass in the fields is constantly alive and that the stadiums can be used comfortably during the winter months.
The electric floor heating system, which was used for the first time in the English Wembley stadium in the 60s, came to Turkey in the early 2000s.
Electric Underfloor Heating Systems Application for Stadiums
Electric underfloor heating systems can be applied both in stadiums under construction and in stadiums with existing turf.
In this system, the spacing of the heating cables varies between 18 and 40 cm. The distance between the cables is adjusted according to the installed power. The installed capacity varies according to the type of soil of the stadium, seasonal conditions and geographical situation. The installed power is between 50 W and 100 W/m2 under normal conditions.
In the electric floor heating system, the cables are laid at a depth of 20 – 25 cm below the soil. The aim is to prevent the system from being damaged during use of the stadium.
Electric underfloor heating is also installed in the water channels in the stadiums , allowing the waste water to be easily discharged from the field. These systems are automated systems and are built in a way that will not cause loss of life or property.
They are systems controlled by special software. By means of sensors placed in the stadium, the temperature values can be observed on a regional basis and the system can be controlled. This system, which consists of independent systems, can also be activated locally or passively when necessary.
Benefits of Electric Underfloor Heating for Stadiums
There is no need for other energy sources such as natural gas and coal.
There is no need for a machine room in electric underfloor heating systems.
The system does not need a lot of human resources.
Electric floor heating systems do not require periodic maintenance.
It does not pollute the environment and does not produce waste.
The system does not need to run continuously
Homogeneous heating is provided.
Snow accumulation and icing are prevented.
With electric underfloor heating systems, the soil is heated in the stadiums, so the growth of the grass is accelerated and it is kept alive.
The system allows the stadiums to be used in the winter months, so the season ends late.
It is ensured that the preparation costs for the season are reduced.
