All the stadium facilities have several uses. On weekdays, the facilities are used by sports clubs as exercise facilities, and on the other hand as conference rooms. At the time of events, they are used by event production.
The logistics of the Olympic Stadium improved dramatically in the renovation, as a logistics tunnel was built under the running track, along which the stadium can be circled from the interior. The tunnel is also used as a 400-metre indoor running track. The building also has rentable meeting and office space.
"Due to the requirements of the multipurpose stadium, the property's access control, locking and security solutions play a very important role. ABLOY solutions are a significant factor in the usability and overall safety of the stadium," says Ilkka Rautakivi, Estate and Security Manager at the Olympic Stadium.
"We estimate that approximately one million visitors will visit the Olympic Stadium every year in the future. We have about 3,000 doors and cabinets that need to be locked," Rautakivi says.
Emergency response is ensured with ABLOY electric locks for rapid evacuation. On exit routes, ABLOY EXIT bars play an important role. The locks open by pressing the bars, and at the same time the door automation is also ordered to lighten the door. The stadium can hold up to 50,000 people at concerts and there must be a readiness to evacuate everyone in eight minutes, if necessary.
