Air Filled Pillows

ETFE pillows are composed of 2, 3, or 4 layers of membrane which are edge welded into sealed units.

What Is An AFP System?

Air filled pillows are large in comparison to conventional metal, plastic or glass cladding panels allowing nominal structure and a different architecture than conventional cladding requires.

Why Choose Air Filled Pillows

Conventional rectangular pillows can be very long, over 200’ (60m) with varied widths depending on environmental loadings. Pillows can be any shape, triangular through octagonal, and have been successfully used in complex freeform structures.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

Any layer can be printed for shading and a variety of prints and custom options exist, including reverse printed operable layers. Pillows are air filled under low pressure by dual chamber pumps and varied sensors and controls are available. Novum’s in-house software predicts potential prone areas and adjusts the geometric form to avoid any wrinkles.

Membrane printing is available in standard colours and patterns, dots, reverse dots, rain effect or customised for full screen and logo requirements. ETFE raw material can be pigmented before extruding in multiple colours and opacities. Air supply systems can be enhanced with master control systems, wireless access points, SMS alerts, and other BMS needs. Bird deterrent systems, colour coated air feeds, and custom operable vents are also available.
