This innovative atrium solution showcases the ultra-lightweight properties and the inherent flexibility of the Texlon® System. Unlike conventional materials, the support structure is able to be designed with much less stiffness, which leads to a much lighter framework than is achievable with conventional materials.

The result is a highly transparent, visually spectacular atrium that provides maximum light transmission and weather protection.
