Award-winning and with a patented coating: Climate textiles from Ettlin © Ettlin


The first major enquiries for the new architectural textile TransProof came from the Arabian Peninsula with a view to shading park areas. Architects from the Stuttgart area, on the other hand, wish to use the translucent material for smaller concepts first. The innovation from Ettlin AG is endowed with an unprecedented mix of properties suitable for transparent weather and solar protection as well as for roofing or membrane construction. Enhanced air permeability provides cooling shade for carports, awnings and sunshades without trapping in the heat. The innovation is also water-repellent, UV-proof and transparent.
