Jose Antonio Sanz insists his company's inflatable structures can cope with winds of 100 kph (62 mph), even 150 kph (93 mph). “We're talking to a customer who will require 180 kph,” protection, says Barcelona-based Buildair's commercial director.
A telematic control system, coupled with multiple 20-cm (7.87-in.) screws drilled into the tarmac, is essential to a structure's stability.
