ETFE & Tensile Fabric

About ETFE

Why Choose ETFE?

ETFE is a great solution to choose because it is durable, highly transparent, and is a lightweight alternative to other solutions such as glass. ETFE is a popular material that can be used for anything from traditional skylight applications to long span structures and building facades. This material can also be printed on to display designs.

We Help to Install, Maintain and Inspect

As ETFE specialists, we install, maintain and inspect ETFE to your exact needs. With our extensive experience and skills, we work with you at any stage to make your project a success. At Simfield Access Solutions we take great pride in our work, and we strive constantly to satisfy our clients, and deliver impressive results first time, every time. 

Is ETFE Transparent?

ETFE is a highly transparent material with 90-95% visibility. This allows UV rays to pass through ETFE efficiently, making it a highly attractive substitute to glass. For the same reason, ETFE is an alternative to roofs and walkway covers as it provides an option that allows for the transmission of light as well as hard cover without added costs or weight.

Is ETFE Sustainable?

ETFE saves energy throughout the entire process of creation, from extruding the film to it’s transportation to site. ETFE is a direct competitor with glass, and offers almost all of the transparency, with added insulation at a lower cost. This material is vitally important in tackling climate change and reducing energy and lighting costs in buildings today.

Is ETFE Affordable?

ETFE is extremely affordable for two main reasons. Firstly, due to it’s lightweight nature, concrete foundations and substructure support systems can be designed far more efficiently. Secondly, it provides natural daylighting, which reduces energy costs on indoor lighting. Its also more affordable than glass, of which ETFE is the alternative.
