ETFE air cushion dome for 'Het Baronneke'

Buitink Technology delivered and installed an ETFE air cushion dome for "Het Baronneke" in Antwerp. The air cushion dome has a huge free span of as much as 11 meters. It consists of 2 layers of foil (i.e. one air chamber). ETFE foil is, due to its transparency and durability, a perfect choice as a material of construction.

  • 100% of production waste foil is recycled;
  • High durability of the foil (>30 years);
  • 100% end of life recycle;
  • Extreme low quantity of ETFE material required (weight of the dome is less than 3 kg/m2);
  • Self-cleaning properties;
  • Transparent for the whole range of the light spectrum (including UV light).
