Texlon Foil Systems
- story by MaterialDistrict
Foiltec designs, engineers and manufactures Texlon Foil Systems, intelligent dynamic systems which are capable of adjusting their shading, thermal and aesthetic characteristics in response to specific programmatic and climatic requirements. Texlon is a cladding and roofing system consisting of two or more layers of ETFE film welded into panels and anchored to an aluminium perimeter frame which can be attached to a support structure. Whereas in inflated buildings the load is borne by compressed air, the air supplied to the Texlon system plays a secondary role. Although air is important for insulation, Texlon transparent roof systems do not require air to maintain their structural integrity.
