Waterpark with Texlon® ETFE Dome
The Graft Therme, is a thermal park located in Delmenhorst in North Germany, consists of a series of indoor and outdoor pools, as well as several saunas. One of the first spas in Germany, it was expanded during the 1980s into a waterpark.
The most recent renovation intended to combine the functionality of a municipal swimming pool with the luxury of modern baths and saunas. One of the “highlights” is the domed Texlon® ETFE skylight spanning more than 25m over the leisure pool. Texlon® ETFE foils are incredibly transparent and allow high levels of light transmission into buildings.
Summer all Season
The lightweight Texlon® ETFE system offers tremendous advantages over traditional roofing systems in terms of energy savings, sound dispersion, lower structural costs and better light transmission. Visible light transmission and UV rays pass through transparent Texlon® ETFE foils. By applying speciality prints to the Texlon® ETFE system the UV levels can be reduced allowing occupants to tan safely. Visitors can enjoy the feeling as if they are outside even during the colder autumn and winter months in the warmth of the pool.
