    ADVANTAGES OF TENSILE STRUCTURES

    Large span covering with consequently less use of additional

    support structure

    Tensile Architecture compared to classical

    construction materials Involves use of a smaller amount of

    materials/mass, prefabricated = less execution time

    In case of Fire

    The fire performances of materials are classified based on their performances

    in case of fire dictated by the material behavior of the project requirements.

    As we know, PVC will melt with non-drops consequences at lower

    temperature than other high Fire Rated roofing materials.

    Light and thermal transmission performances

    PES-PVDF

    Measurement of light

    transmission at 550

    nanometers is giving

    real transmission

    grade.

    Other artificial testing

    methods can mislead

    the real value of the

    output data.

    We believe that the preservation of the environment is

    much more than “waste management” as may be the

    case of the sole recycling tasks.

    Mehler Texnologies, as one of the largest coating

    company in the world, is participating actively with the

    EU Commissions as partner of Vinyl 2010 and

    respecting in full the REACH regulations.

    This commitment covers the entire lifecycle of PVC

    and PVC products and represents for Mehler

    Texnologies a set of guidelines for acting in a

    sustainable manner.

    approved materials

    warrant immission into

    the market of selected

    primary compounds.

    collection system post-

    gathered together,

    mechanically processed

    and made by thermo-

    physical means into

    new products.
