Made of a copolymer extruded into thin films, this durable material can achieve light transmission up to 95%.
At 1% the weight of glass, you can watch the bottom line of your project shrink as we reduce the size of steel and foundations required to support this ‘floating’ system.
Systems range from cable supported single layer to insulated multi foil cushions. Cushions range from two to four layers – depending on the required insulation.
ETFE cushions are filled with air using an Air Handling Unit (AHU). This unit’s job is to maintain the pressure in the system between 200-300 pa depending on the size of the roof. The AHU is very efficient consuming power equivalent to a 100w light bulb.
Widths of panels are up to 3.5m, while lengths are infinite.
