Moisture protection from ETFE foil for buildings
A unique application of a transparent ETFE foil as protection
agains rain, falling objects and liquids.
For the Euroborg stadium in Groningen Buitink Technology
realized moisture protection screens from ETFE foil. Their main
purpose is to protect the visitors not only for rain but mainly for
falling objects and liquids throuwn from above. The ETFE foil is
provided with inox cabels and is fixed inside the main
ETFE foil in ths project was chosen for a variety of reasons.
First of all due to it's transparency and light weight (about
350g/m2), allowing an easy fixation to the existing building.Due to
it's sun light transmission up tu 95%, below gallery are iluminated
by ambiant light. The material is quite resistant to aging from
light up to at least 25 yearsOn top of that the material is also
fire resistant (listed in the 1st class of NEN 6065).
Finally the material can be completely cut "custom made",
allowing construction of complex threedimentional shapes.
