ETFE Foil Toby Mason LHTDesign Cladding System Engineering

A light flexible cladding system that minimises mass contributions under seismic events, and can accommodate the potentially higher deflections experienced in ductile structures without catastrophic failure. The flexible nature of foil means the system can accommodate much larger spans, requiring significantly lighter support steelwork, and can achieve complex forms that are difficult to realise in glass.
