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.
