ETFE membrane roof - Cabo Norte

Mexico 2017

 

The roof of the shopping mall Cabo Norte is covered with 12.000 qm of the translucent ETFE cushions. We were requested to develop and produce the 102 cushions. A ventilation system controls the constant pressure and provides compensation for strong wind loads in the membrane. A special IR-cut membrane from Nowoflo reduce the thermal load in the interior in a significant way. For the assembling of the ETFE cushions we used our especially developed aluminium profile system with silicone seals, which provides an absolute waterproofness.
