Technical Specification

Description

This project for Nottingham University Samworth Academy is the first in the UK to use the Italian designed TEXO® tensioned fabric framing system.

The design incorporates a single layer of ETFE foil mounted on an extruded aluminium frame, and uses a high tech plastomeric strip to keep the foil under constant tension, even under varying wind loads. The benefits of the system include a high translucency roof that is a fraction of the weight, and costs considerably less than a toughened glass alternative.

The TEXO® system is modular in that the frames can be built and covered in a controlled factory environment off-site and delivered as complete and finished units which are then fixed into a prepared structural steel frame and gutter system. In this way expensive site time is reduced and the risk of damage to the ETFE foil is limited.
