Tensile Membrane Structure Materials
PFEIFER Structures provides several options for membrane materials including PTFE, ETFE, and PVC fabrics, as well as steel finishes to meet various project specifications. You can find more information about these options on the following pages.
ETFE foil is a revolutionary construction material for architects and builders due to its excellent combination of physical qualities and capabilities. ETFE has been used for an array of imaginative structures such as canopies, covered walkways, bridges, building facades, roofing membranes, and tensile membrane structures.Visit ETFE Foil Page
PTFE is a TEFLON™-coated woven fiberglass membrane that is extremely durable and tolerant of even the most extreme weather elements. PTFE is chemically inert, weatherable, excellent electrical insulation, high temperature resistance, a low coefficient of friction and non-adhesive properties.Visit PTFE Page
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is available, is a cost-effective alternative to traditional roofing systems and can be produced in a multitude of colors and as a woven or non-woven material. PVC membrane is commonly coated with a protective acrylic or PVDF top coat. This material has been a staple in the industry since the early 1960s.Visit PVC Page
Structural steel is the type of steel that is used for construction resources or materials. They can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, strengths and chemical compositions. Structural steel is commonly used in construction because of its versatility and ability to be welded to fit virtually any purpose in the construction of a building as well as structures.Visit Structural Steel Page
