Glass fibre with PTFE/Teflon coating
This tensile structure is the only one in the Netherlands that is made of glass fibre with a PTFE/Teflon coating. The reason is because it involves a membrane that has been stretched under an external wall. Rainwater and dirt, therefore, run down along the roof. PTFE is very dirt repellent and can be easily cleaned. The main structure that was already present was used as the load-bearing structure for this roofing solution.
