A new generation material, providing an architecturally innovative option, which goes beyond glass and provides visual design impact. It is durable, with high resistance and elasticity, as well as highly transparent and exceptionally lightweight in comparison to glass structures making it an ideal alternative to traditional skylight applications.
Benefits of ETFE
- ETFE films can be highly transparent (from 90% to 95%) and allow for the passing of UV rays which help to promote of photosynthesis, thus facilitating growth. As a result of UV transparency, the film will not discolour or weaken structurally over time.
- Due to the lightweight nature of ETFE, substructure support systems and concrete foundations can be designed more efficiently. ETFE systems also provide ample natural daylighting, thus minimising energy costs by lowering the demand for indoor lighting.
Solar Control & Shading
- ETFE film systems can incorporate a number of frit patterns on one or more multiple layers to alter their solar performance. The film is printed with various standard or custom patterns.
