Shading ETFE cushion roofs
ETFE cushion roofs can be provided with sun shade prints to
reduce the Solar Factor.
Shading prints on ETFE foil
Shading prints can be applied in 2 different ways:
- Prints on one or more layers of ETFE foil
- Control system, where 2 opposite layers of an ETFE cushion have
Principle of controlling sun shade
Pressurizing an air chamber between 2 foils with prints will
open the sun shade system, acting as "blinds". When reducing the
air pressure the 2 layers of foil will stick together and the sun
light transfer is reduced ("blinds are closed").
