Beating the heat is especially important as the summer gets even warmer, and sporting events that pack large numbers of spectators into a single venue have some unique risks. When thousands of people congregate on bleachers, the blazing temperatures can easily make things incredibly uncomfortable for those surrounded by hot bodies.
That’s why we’re so intrigued to hear about a state-of-the-art stadium being built in Japan, which will use misting technologies to help control the body temperatures of those watching the game. As this article published by The Japan News discusses, a National Stadium is being planned for Tokyo, mainly for the housing of events related to the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, which will come to the city.
This stadium will have the ability to seat up to 80,000 sports fans attending a game, which will make this Japan’s largest stadium by capacity. The facility will include 2,000 restrooms, liquid crystal displays on seatbacks, which can interact with fans and even has plans to use robot ushers.
The seating accommodations for fans will be top notch, and even include the ability for spectators to easily adjust the position of their chairs to see more of the field of play. As we stated earlier, a misting system will also be used to keep patrons cool in their seats. The misting system, which is implemented through a series of vents mounted onto seat backs, is also designed to be environmentally friendly.
When you’re trying to come up with novel ways of keeping cool and driving away the heat this summer, make sure to consider what a misting system can do for your property. If you don’t have a pool, a misting system is a cost-effective way to give your family a spot to cool off outside during the hot weather.
