Brasília Mané Garrincha Stadium

Brasília Mané Garrincha Stadium

The Brasilia Stadium, also called Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha or National Stadium of Brasilia, is a football and multipurpose arena which was rebuilt between 2010 and 2013 in preparation of the 2014 FIFA Worldcup in Brazil.

The 2013 version of the stadium can sit up to 72,000 people, making it the second largest stadium in Brasil in capacity.

For this project, Dextra Do Brasil delivered to contractor Grupovia & Andrade Gutierrez its Rolltec rebar coupler solution as well as Rolltec Headed Bars.

Rolltec is the most popular rebar slicing solution in Brazil, providing a competitive alternative to lap splices and more importantly allowing advanced applications simplifying project management and operations.

For the called Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha, rebar couplers were used as a way to connect rebar cages which have been previously prefabricated on the ground.

Rolltec allow a swift rebar cage reconnection by simply pulling the coupler by hand from the top cage to the bottom cage. In total, more than 57,000 Rolltec couplers were used the columns of the stadium.

6,000 Rolltec Headed Bars were also used on this project as a replacement to hook bars in congested parts of the reinforcement. Rolltec Headed Bars use the same standard thread profile as coupler, simplifying rebar production.

The Rollltec solution was supported by a Rolltec machine installed at the stadium construction site. The commissioning and maintenance of the machine was done by Dextra do Brasil local engineers, ensuring the training of operators and guaranteeing high productivity of the equipment.
