A Leisure Amenity in Southern France Covered with Texlon® ETFE

The Centre Aquatique Archipel La Cité de L’eau is a fantastic leisure amenity for the Adge region in Southern France. The aquatic center covers a total area of 10,000 m² (6,200 m² indoor and outdoor 3,800 m²).

Feeling as if you are Outside

The indoor swimming area is covered by a beautiful Texlon® ETFE cladding system. With excellent insulation properties, the large wave pools, slides, and jacuzzies within the transparent enclosure are kept at a desired temperature all year round.

Texlon® ETFE possesses better insulating properties than comparable triple-glazed glass units. The high levels of light transmission and UV light transmission passing through the Texlon® ETFE system means that the occupants feel as if they are outside all year round – but at the same time they are protected from the elements in the colder seasons.

Beautiful Architecture with Texlon® ETFE

From an architectural viewpoint, the combination of Texlon® ETFE supported by an elegantly curved timber frame structure is truly beautiful. 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.

Let us Help you Make People Feel at Home

We have designed endless intelligent, flexible possibilities to make people feel at home, entertain them, and create memorable experiences. Be it, spectacular architecture, awesome lighting concepts, or flexible roof designs, building with Texlon® ETFE is quite economical.
