Description

Vector Foiltec’s Texlon® ETFE – seamlessly combining aesthetics, design and functionality

In addition to our multi-layer inflated technology, demand for Texlon® ETFE single membrane technology is growing. This technology is fast evolving whereby aesthetics and functionality are paramount. The six canopies at Tottenham Hale bus station are a testament to this.

Optimsed design

In spite of relatively high snow and water loads, Vector Foiltec was able to help optimise the design to alleviate ponding issues. Each canopy comprises of four foil panels that are welded together and supported by radial cables. The radial cables enhance the design without overpowering the appearance of the canopies.

Cost effective ETFE solution

Vector Foiltec’s design and engineering experience combined with Texlon® ETFE’s properties has transformed single membrane technology into a cost effective solution for canopies and buildings where thermal performance is not a concern.

Opened in 1840, Tottenham Hale is one of the oldest railway stations in Europe.
