One thousand two hundred seating elements of the Kum collection have been installed in the new multi-functional sports facility in Bassano del Grappa in the Vicenza province. We are referring to the new PalaBassano facility, a polyvalent structure with a 40x20 playing field, suitable for various sports activities such as roller hockey, 5-player football, basketball, volleyball and handball, as well as artistic gymnastics and many others. The Kum model of seating, used to furnish the "grandstand" of the sports hall, is produced by Bericoplast, a firm that has been operating for 35 years in the sports amenities business. Made from polyamide-6, the seats are installed and directly secured to the tread of the steps.  
Bericoplast has supplied and installed seating in numerous stadiums and sports halls in Italy and abroad. The Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg Germany and the sports hall in Nancy, France just to name a couple. Besides, ever since 2006, the firm has become one of a select group of official FIFA suppliers. It has infact supplied all the seating for the recent African Cup of Nations (Ghana 2008), and for the press centres of the 2006 World Football Championship circuit and the recent European championships in Austria and Switzerland. The success of Bericoplast products is mainly due to their quality, technical reliability and safety, which this firm from Vicenza is able to guarantee thanks to more than 40 years' consolidated experience. Research & Development, an all-Italian chain of production (these products are entirely manufactured in Italy using materials that are 95% recyclable) and a fair dose of passion for this work, are the secrets behind a firm which deserves to be counted among the world's leading producers of community seating, with over 450.000 pieces turned out each year.
