Inflatable Slats for Industry Use
Buitink Technology developed an insulated air cushion roof with
an ETFE foil skylight. This skylight is equiped internally with a
solar control system.
The air cushion roof is made of 2 layers membrane cloth. An
insulating layer is placed on the lower membrane layer. It results
in a very high heat resistance (Rc value) of the roof.
The air cushion roof can be equiped with transparent ETFE foil
skylights, having build in slats. The slats prevent direct sunlight
entrance. Lucidity of the skylight is controlled by inflating the
slats with air. Releasing the air again by evacuation restores the
light entrance of the skylight. A robust and maintenance free
sunlight control system is obtained.
