ETFE cladding exterior canopy Bordeaux

In cooperation with her French partner Highpoint Structures, Buitink Technology engineered, delivered and installed a single layer ETFE tensioned cladding against the downside of a large canopy being part of a reconstruction of an exhibition area and congress hall in Bordeaux (France).

Due to its self cleaning properties, durability, high degree of transparency and its extreme light weight a cladding made of a single layer of tensed ETFE foil is a perfect choice.


To deal with possible wind force ETFE membranes are surrounded by Stainless Steel cbles. The total surface area covered with ETFE membranes is about 1450 m2.
