Tensile Membrane Façade
Understanding the performance impacts of tensile membrane façades is crucial to understanding how they can improve building performance.
Solving the issue of heat transfer is a continual point of development for broader application of tensile membrane architecture. Rainer Blum is working to solve this problem for tensile membrane materials with a Low E-coating. The “low emissivity” coating inhibits infrared radiation, helping to increase insulation performance while still allowing for a total of 50% light transmittance.
