Coratec building envelope in the spotlight
Ericsson Globe at the heart of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is history. In addition to the singers, once again the spectacular Ericsson Globe has been the focus of a major event. The Ericsson Globe was completed in 1989 as the largest spherical building in the world. The building envelope consists of Corapan® panels which are connected watertight to each other and fastened to a steel substructure. The development and production of this building envelope is the largest project in the history of Coratec (then LMS) to date. The Ericsson Globe has been braving wind and weather for 27 years without any problems. This impressively proves the durability and quality of our Corapan® sandwich panels.
