Expertise and Expectations

The installation of the Texlon® ETFE inflated panel system was performed using rope access technicians. This combined with Vector Foiltec’s unique trafficable netting system, enabled other trades to work below without significant exclusion zones. Texlon® ETFE properties and our expertise allow for quick and efficient installation of roofing and facades, enabling us to deliver results to our clients beyond their expectations.
