Development and application of membrane structure technology gets rid of the limit of tradition materials such as steel, wood, concrete, and it also breaks the traditional concept of construction, creating new imaginary space for architect. It is very different from the traditional construction, and brings more affection for construction industries and will be the main trend for development of construction space.
The features of energy conservation and environment protection make lower secondary pollution. The membrane structure only needs to be stretched and fixed, so the installation is very fast. It also reduce the pollution in construction site. It guarantees the effect of landscape and shows the region culture.
1,Energy conservation: It is because of the features of heat resistance and light transmittance of the lining.
2,Environment protection: It avoids to using massive traditional materials such as steels, bricks and stones, and reduces the secondary pollution. The membrane structure only needs to be stretched and fixed, so the installation is very fast. It also reduce the pollution in construction site.
3,Ecological benefit: After ultraviolet rays filtered by membrane and lining, the lighting into room becomes diffusion light which is good for the growth of vegetation.Advantage of using ETFE material
•Transmits more light
•Is only 1/100 the weight of glass
•ETFE is strong enough to bear 400 times its own weight
•ETFE can be stretched to three times its length without loss of elasticity
•ETFE can be repaired by welding patches over tears
•ETFE has a nonstick surface that resists dirt
•ETFE is expected to last as long as 50 years
This kind of tension membrane structures can be widely used in seasonal or permanent structures for indoor sports and recreational facilities as gymnasiums, stadiums, swimming pools, cafeterias and exhibition and conventional centers canopies and vehicle parking, etc.
