Transparent domes made of flexible ETFE foil
On behalf of "HVA Koeling bvba" from Belgium Buitink Technology delivered and installed at location 14 ETFE domes. These domes are placed on the roof of the Field Research Centre in Maasmechelen.
The construction entirely build from SS has a diameter of 14 m and a height of 3.5 m. All 14 domes are provided with tensioned ETFE membranes.
The ETFE domes belong to the Ecotron+ project of the university of Hasselt. In so called "eco system rooms" environmental and climate reseach is carried out. Each room is equiped with a transparent ETFE dome. ETFE foil has a high light permeability of >95% and is dirt resistant and has self cleaning properties.
