Spanning The Age Gap

Triple layer ETFE pneumatic cushions provided the ideal solution to link the fine historic street side warehouse building with the new energy efficient concrete development created to the rear. The tensile structure spans over the large reception area providing an abundance of light within the four storey atrium and to adjoining offices. To reduce sun glare, the transparent cushions have a small silver dot fritting to their outer layer which also enables the required light transmission to be satisfied. ETFE foil being self cleansing eradicates the requirement for an on-going cleaning program. Using lightweight membrane material allows an equally lightweight steel supporting structure. Hightex’s scope included the design and supply of the steel frame and opening vertical glazed vents. Hightex worked closely with the Architect to satisfy required design criteria.
