The degree of innovation essential for membrane structures and ETFE films is supplied by our own R&D department with its test centre, facilities and laboratories. In Obing we also have outdoor testing grounds for performing long-term weathering tests on full-size mock-ups. Other membrane contractors use our extensive testing facilities for their tests as well.
Membrane architecture obeys its own rules. Comprehensive knowledge of the material is essential. And craft-like meticulousness. Only then credible results are guaranteed. So seele cover carries out its own fabrication – to the highest quality standards. The production plant in Obing in southern Germany can process virtually all the membrane structures and ETFE film types used in construction. More than 1,000sqm of floor area with the very latest machinery – digital cutters for precisely dimensioned segments and ETFE film welding machines that can join even the largest membrane segments perfectly. For prestressed shade sails or air-filled transparent or printed two- to five-layer ETFE films, for example. Strict quality control measures guarantee that all materials and their processing comply with our high standards. seele cover’s ETFE skills are manifold and have been demonstrated on many occasions.
