Covering made of ETFE foil for courtyards
Together with her French partner Highpoint Structures, Buitink
Technology engineered, produced and installed an ETFE membrane
cover for a courtyard of a winery in Bordeaux (France).
A roof of single layer ETFE film was selected due to its self
cleaning properties, durability, light weight, safety compared to a
glass roof and transparancy. To be able toabsorb the forces of wind
and snow, the ETFE membranes have been provided with pockets
connected to stainless steel cable systems. Total surface of the
project is around 410 sqm.
