ETFE Tesile Architecture


Thanks to their high tensile strength (five times greater than steel), coated fabrics can be used to create support-free constructions with wide spans. They are not only a crucial design element, but are a structurally indispensable part of the overall construction thanks to the pre-tensioning applied.

Apart from PVC-coated polyester fabrics, several other material combinations such as PTFE- or silicone- coated glass fabrics or fluorpolymer foils.Ultimately, it is the respective, project-specific requirements, the budget available and the home-builder's wishes as to aesthetics and design that are decisive for the selection of materials.Many years of experience in the handling of numerous different materials guaranteeing successful projects. such as ETFE can be used depending on the constructional requirements.

All advantages at a glance:

Individual shape and colour

Low material costs

Short planning, manufacturing and assembly time

Support-free roofing for large areas

Temporary and portable constructions possible

Enclosed structures possible using thermally insulated and soundproofed, multilayer membrane constructions

Savings on lighting

Long lifespan

Excellent heat protection – high reflectivity

Excellent resistance to earthquakes

Technical Textiles for Tensile Structures - PVC-coated Polyester fabric

PVC coated Polyester Fabrics High-grade, extremely tear-resistant polyester fabrics are coated with plastic on both sides. PVC has become established as almost the sole material used, due to its wide variability. A variety of surface finishes are conceivable in terms of soiling characteristics and durability. Acrylic coatings are offered as standard. Soiling characteristics are significantly improved if a PVDF coating is applied.

Ceno-membranes made of PVC coated Polyester Fabrics comply with the most demanding quality standards.

Architectonic exiting applications become possible due to the membranes' high degree of flexibility, UV resistance and resistance to weather as well as their translucency especially in the case of light colors.
