Roof collapse of the Moscow waterpark Transvaal resulting in numerous victims in 2004 gave rise to concerns of Russian project designers – vibration safety became priority in case of thin-shell concrete constructions providing that their length greatly exceeds thickness.
Even though cause of roof crash has not yet been determined, respected experts expressed confidence that damages were caused by vibration.
Thin-shell constructions combined with football fans' excitement may pose a timely danger for stadiums safety – they can be crashed due to the produced vibration.

It is worth mentioning that Kaliningrad Stadium is not the first FIFA World Cup 2018 site where vibro-proof materials Nowelle® are used. Vibro-proof materials Nowelle® will provide vibration isolation at Luzhniki Olympic Complex, that is being currently rebuilt, and at the Otkritie Arena in Moscow.
