Custom Made Transparent Terrace Canopies

On behalf of Highpoint Structures in Bordeaux, Buitink Technology developed, produced and delivered ETFE membranes for 7 patio coverings in the area of Bordeaux, France. A total surface of about 450 sqm is covered.

The ETFE film is provided with a sun blocking print, which gives a g-value of 0.35. Despite of the high density of the print, the membranes are still transparent and the sky is still visible from the inside.

 
 

The choice for ETFE film was easy due to it's self-cleaning properties and durability: it has an expected life cycle of >20 years. It is an extremely light weight material and can be fully recycled to be reused for the same high-end applications.
