Membrane Structure - ETFE and PTFE



Membrane Structure Types

From Membrane Structure Manufacturer and Application point of view, Membrane Structure types are classified into two Broad categories:

  • Pneumatic Structure

  • Tensile Structure


Pneumatic Structures

These are air-supported Structures whose Structural Integrity depends upon use of internal pressurized air to aerate the pliable material envelope. In these types oftension fabric structures, the main structural support is from air. As fabric Structure Manufacturers, our well experienced engineers come with the highest fabric structure standards and precision construction work to serve you a long lasting structure. To withstand wind force and snow load, we adjust structure’s inflation accordingly.


Tensile Membrane Structures

These are thin shell economic structures and attractively covers large distances carrying only tension, but no compression. The Material used for roofing membrane structures are generally (single–layered or double-layered) PTFE-coated fiber glass and PVC coated Polyester. Supportive Structural cables used in Tensile structure are a series of strands twisted or bound together, leading to a larger cable.

Airports


The integrated terminal buildings are designed with number of structural innovations. The key feature of airport structure is their long span roof covering with massive column spacing. The mega columns and large cantilevers make the structure unique. By using modular space frame structure supported by cantilevered columns makes the roof aesthetically good with doubly curved.

Pre-Engineered Buildings


It offers a futuristic solution for creating durable and efficient structures in cost effective manner. Apart from great flexibility of designing and minimal construction time offered by PEB’s, they are also preferred for their robustness and durability. Moreover, it is possible to add a wide range of structural and non structural components, which enhances their aesthetic appeal and also improve their usability.

Space Frames


Space frame is a three dimensional structure. The 3D behavior ensures optimum utilization of material. The quality of roofing is exceptional good as the deflections are almost negligible. Despite their light weight, these structures are designed to carry much heavier load and have a huge spanning capacity. Erection time is minimal as the material is pre fabricated from the factory.

Multi-Storey Buildings


Steel frames construction is a very popular structural form for multi storey buildings as it provides great flexibility. The structure has adequate strength and stiffness to resist the applied loads due to gravity and wind. The function of the structure in resisting vertical loads due to gravity and horizontal loads due to wind is generally considers separately.

Bulk Storage Sheds


Bulk storage sheds are large span structure to accommodate tons of coals for continuous supply to the boilers.The structures are designed with modular space frame to make it cost effective compared to other conventional structures. Catwalks, ducts and other services can be accommodated within the top and bottom chord.

Membrane Structures


Textile supported by steel combines the high flexibility of use of this one, from reticular arches to infinite space geometries, with a singular covering applied only with optimum conditions in order to avoid abrasion and corrosion due to contact with main bearing structure. The all season use is guaranteed by a singular system of side opening in order to obtain maximum ventilation in hot season.

Self Supporting Roofs


Self supporting roofing system makes it possible to erect a warehouse in one span without trusses, purlins and rafters. The systems are mechanically sealed which ensures better weather proofing and a hygienic and clean environment. The absence of holes, nuts, bolts, overlaps or sealants, these structures require minimal to zero maintenance making them highly cost efficient.
