Air cushion roof for public square Bisonspoor
Buitink Technology realized an air inflated ETFE cushion roof in
the centre part of a public square in shopping centre Bisonspoor in
Maarssen (the Netherlands).
The air cushion roof consists of 18 ETFE cushions covering a
total surface area of 315 m2.
Heat reflecting ETF roof
The roof consists of 3 layers of ETFE foil (2 air chambers. The
outside layer is coated with a heat reflecting so called "infra red
block". The infra red block foil still is very transparent for
light, but blocks effectively heat from sun-radiation.
In below graph a comparison of the transmission is shown between
a standard ETFE foil (''T Standard natural'') and an IR block foil
