realized a double set of sliding curtains with the corresponding
The project consisted in the enclosing of two hangar for the
Implementation of the curtain
Both hangars need to be easily accessible in case of ice on the
roads. For this reason the client opted for a system of sliding
curtains where the closing is to be done with inox tensors that are
quick to position either open or close. The mesh fabric was
chosen in order to provide enough light inside the hangars but to
still protect the inner space form wind and rain. The fabric is
strong, with little embodied energy and fire
resistant. Buitink Technology has also realized the orange
print on the curtain which are provided with a polyester meshfabric
with pvc coat.
For this project 335 m of sliding curtains were installed for
both hangars together. The hight of the hangars is about 4,5 m.
