Type 3 –

PVDF/ePTFE

Type 3A – PVDF Ventilated Mesh

Main Benefits:

  • Applications: Very durable rigid mesh type for ventilated facade screens with added illumination factor because the material will glow when backlit at night.
  • Cost: ($$$)
  • Ventilation: 23% open mesh (one manufacturer)
  • Colors: White

Additional Information:

  • Fire Rating: Fire-resistant, passing ASTM E-84 “class A” and NFPA 701 typically (independent fire testing available upon request)
  • Warranty: 10-year warranty
  • Geography: Works well in a variety of climates

What Is PVDF/ePTFE?

PVDF/ePTFE, also known as Polyvinylidene Fluoride, is is a highly non-reactive and pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer. Our ePTFE fiberglass fabric membrane is stain-resistant and easy to clean, offering a cost-effective solution.

Type 3B – Waterproof  PVDF Membrane

Main Benefits:

  • Applications: This mesh type has the highest transparency and is used for façade screens + interior illuminated ceilings that require high illumination
  • Cost: ($$$)
  • Ventilation: 0%
  • Colors: White

Additional Information:

  • Fire Rating: Fire-resistant, passing ASTM E-84 “class A” and NFPA 701 typically (independent fire testing available upon request)
  • Warranty: 10-year minimum warranty
  • Geography: Works well in a variety of climates

KieranTimberlake: Printed Tensile Cladding at Rice University


We are pleased to have collaborated with KieranTimberlake and the outfit of a parking structure on the Rice University Campus. In their blog post, they describe the concepts they employed to create an iconic sculptural element. For more details see the KieranTimberlake blog post.





The Increasing Importance of Durability


While tensile fabric has several distinct advantages over more traditional materials like glass, one of the most important may be its ability to withstand severe weather events. Our tensile structures and tensile facades  in Miami, Jacksonville, Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Atlanta did not sustain any damage or require any repair despite enduring events ranging […]
