ETFE + Membrane Systems
The Air Filled Pillow (AFP) System features individual pillows made of ETFE material which provides for economical, light, large panels and the unique ability to readily clad irregular non-planar freeform surfaces. Large cladding panels facilitate the innovative use of optimized structural support. Every pillow has a fully integrated aluminium perimeter clamping mechanism creating a highly efficient and weather resistant system. The material blocks harmful UV making it ideal for growing plants, indoor sun tanning, and applications requiring diffused lighting, such as sports arenas, swimming facilities and canopies.
The Stressed Skin Membrane (SSM) System features a single layer of translucent ETFE welded membrane which is discreetly supported and post tensioned by a lightweight grid of thin stainless- or glavanised-steel cables. ETFE provides multiple aesthetic and functional benefits in that it is resistant to most chemicals and climates, UV resistant and evaporates leaving no debris or molten material if exposed to fire or bomb blasts. Optional screen printing is available. The SSM-System is ideal for canopies, stadium roofs and covered areas.
