BRETT MARTIN, the industrial rooflight and daylighting manufacturer, is supplying a transparent polycarbonate roof for Everton’s new 53,000-seat stadium at Bramley Moore Dock in Liverpool.
The £555 million stadium will be covered with a specialist polycarbonate material which will allow light through to the pitch, helping to maintain a top quality football pitch.
Covering 6000 sq m of the stadium roof, the Marlon CS Polycarbonate corrugated sheet, manufactured at the company’s factory in County Antrim, has already been used in some of the top stadia in sports, including Manchester United’s Old Trafford and Manchester City’s Etihad.

Paul Martin from Brett Martin said: “It’s hard to overstate the importance of the material that we supply for the success of top football clubs. Without a high-quality playing surface, these teams can’t succeed. Through significant R&D, we have developed a product that meets the needs of stadia roofing in terms of strength, durability and the ability to emit sunlight to the pitch.
“Everton’s stadium project is world-class in terms of its design, sustainability credentials and potential positive impact on Liverpool, so it is one we are very much proud to be involved with.”
With a workforce topping 1,000 and sales of £220 million, the privately owned Brett Martin is one of Europe’s largest plastic sheet producers.
