ETFE Structures

Innovating with ETF

Comprehensive Services in Design, Engineering, Fabrication, Construction, and Maintenance

The innovative world of ETFE (Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene), a groundbreaking transparent fluoropolymer material that offers exceptional properties and limitless possibilities. Architects, builders, and engineers worldwide are increasingly turning to ETFE for its remarkable performance characteristics, making it a preferred choice for diverse applications. This advanced material is celebrated for its transparency and lightness, bringing revolutionary solutions to modern architecture.

ETFE is a transparent plastic material designed for long-term durability in outdoor applications. Over the past two decades, ETFE has gained popularity in architecture due to its lightweight nature, transparency, and cost-effectiveness compared to glass roofs or facades. Additionally, its ease of processing allows the creation of complex 3D shapes that would be impossible or prohibitively expensive to achieve with glass. ETFE not only offers aesthetic advantages but also provides significant safety benefits over traditional glass.

TE Membrane & Partners possess extensive expertise in the design, construction, and installation of lightweight ETFE cushion or single-layer envelopes. The multi-layer application of ETFE in cushions enables the coverage of large surfaces with minimal weight, pushing the boundaries of design and functionality.

This guide will cover:

Imagine the potential of a lightweight, highly durable material that offers unparalleled benefits. ETFE has become a vital component in architectural, construction, and engineering projects, driving innovation in design and functionality. Its transparency allows for an abundance of natural light, while its UV transmission properties create a safe and sustainable environment.

For large-span roofing, skylights, and facades, ETFE excels. Its ability to transmit light and UV rays creates expansive, inviting spaces, while its strength and durability ensure longevity and structural integrity.

One of ETFE’s most significant advantages is its reduced need for structural steel support compared to traditional glazing systems, simplifying installation and reducing costs. ETFE is often chosen for its value-engineering benefits over glass roofing, offering a perfect balance of functionality, aesthetics, and affordability.
