Roofing membranes

SHEERFILL Architectural Membranes provide a lightweight, permanent tensioned structure for all types of structures. The composite material enables lightweight construction that allows high levels of natural light into interior spaces while also reducing cooling loads by reflecting the sun's energy. With no painting required or regular cleaning required, our roofing membranes deliver a low-maintenance, long-term solution with unmatched design freedom and enhanced building performance.

Our Products

Marseilles Stadium, France

Our SHEERFILL permanent tensioned membrane structure are an important part of the construction process in the sports, transportation, retail and specialty markets. Made of fiberglass and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), SHEERFILL Architectural Membranes fabrics are available in a range of strengths and light transmission levels to provide total freedom of design.

ILLUMINATE is made by laminating PTFE (TEFLON®) films to PTFE-coated fiberglass. Like other SHEERFILL® Architectural Membranes, Illuminate is watertight and helps keep the elements out, and has a Class A fire rating. Its specialized design provides high strength, long life, and the flexibility to add a range of colors.

Interior membrane acoustical solutions

Fabrasorb Acoustical Membranes keep acoustical disturbance to a minimum while interiors remain cool and full of natural light. When used as a liner in SHEERFILL Architectural Membrane systems, it works as an integral part of the roof to provide enhanced building performance and comfort. It typically lasts for over 20 years with low maintenance needs and Class A fire safety.

Shanghai Qizhong Tennis Center

Originally designed to reduce noise and reverberations in stadiums, the Fabrasorb material also enhances the thermal characteristics of fabric roof systems. The Fabrasorb acoustical membrane is made using fiberglass and polytetrafluoroethylene composites for a translucent, non-combustible finish with long-life characteristics.
