Description

Vector Foiltec installed a series of printed Texlon® ETFE free standing canopies and a large canopy over the railway station at London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. This prestigious project was designed by HOK International and Rogers, Stirk, Harbour & Partners architects. Even though the station is located underground, the Texlon® ETFE cladding panels allow natural daylight to flood down to the platforms. This transparency also creates an airy and spacious environment which fits in with the design concept of the building.
