storage buildings and warehouses: Why privilege textile construction?
12.01 2015

Used in the design of major world structures such as the Olympic Stadium in London, textile technology offers great performance in terms of mechanical resistance as well as thermal, acoustic and lighting qualities. This is why SMC2 recommends it for the construction of your hangars, warehouses and other storage buildings!




The composite membrane, also known as textile roofing, is perfectly suited to all types of projects whose objective is to build a robust and functional architecture: industrial hangars, commercial warehouses or storage buildings. As part of the dry construction sector, its use guarantees a quick and trouble-free construction site. Its translucency ensures a homogeneous zenithal lighting which avoids any glare or shadow zone for the comfort and safety of the people working on site. The composition of the textile membrane is also known to attenuate reverberation and echoes, which is a real comfort in view of the noisy activities that can be carried out in warehouses: driving vehicles, loading and unloading boxes, drums, pallets, etc.




Textile construction is proof that ecology and economy can go hand in hand. Textile roofing is a material with a low ecological impact that has a low thermal inertia, i.e. it protects its occupants from the heat in summer and the cold in winter. The energy savings in terms of lighting and heating are therefore real. Also, the composite membrane is less expensive than other materials usually used for an equivalent life span (30 years). 100% recyclable, it retains its luminous properties throughout its life cycle without requiring any particular maintenance.
