Details

The Murphy/Jahn planning team from Chicago, together with Sobek Engineers and Transsolar from Stuttgart, was responsible for designing the new international airport in Bangkok. The technical optimisation, material development and detailed planning of the membrane roof system were undertaken by Hightex.

The 108 membrane bays were designed as a three-layered system to meet the high technical requirements with respect to daylight, acoustics, energy balance and building physics. The three-layer membrane roof structure consists of an outer skin of PTFE-coated glass fabric, a highly transparent sound-insulating middle layer of thermoplastic elements, and a sound absorbing low-E coated inner layer with a defined light transmission. The low-E coating of this newly developed textile material greatly reduces the internal level of infrared radiation. This fluorpolymer-coated, metallised glass fabric has a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of approximately 70 percent.
