Modular TEXO Single Skin ETFE Roof
Providing an alternative to conventional glazing, ETFE foil roofs feature a transparent single skin that allows the maximum penetration of natural light into interior spaces. Initially developed by Tensoforma of Italy, the TEXO cladding system has since been adapted by Base Structures to deliver a material with a 97% translucency with a 30 year product lifespan.
The single skin roof conforms to a modular system, with each 200 micron thick panel mounted on lightweight extruded aluminium frames. To ensure that the foil is kept in constant tension and thus provides clear and consistent light, silicone strip jointing is employed around each panel. The result is a robust and visually uncluttered system that is easy to maintain and versatile enough to suit any design project.
