The aim is
to cover a polygonal section lift tower using an ETFE membrane stretched over
an Onddi metal structure and anchored at the bottom by fixture of aluminium
The defined canvas units are manufactured in one piece and are encased
on the lower perimeter with a PVC sleeve, by which they are anchored to the
aluminium frame. The membranes cover the metal structure to protect against the
wind and to give the walkway a modern aesthetic appearance.
The blue ETFE membrane has dimensions of 15m in length x 3m in width for the walkway area. And approximately 9m in height x 5m in diameter for the lift area, with an approximate surface area of 50m2 and 140m2 respectively.
All the membranes are formed
in a single piece and fixed to the structure by means of an aluminium
tensioning frame at the ends. The ETFE is fixed in the central areas by using
artificial pockets with other aluminium frames on the existing structure. All
lacquered in the same blue colour.
