INSTALLATION

We are in the business of construction and work with some of the most experienced construction teams in the sector. 


Texlon® ETFE installations are precision-engineered systems and requiring the highest levels of craftsmanship and skill to install. Site installation, testing and commissioning is undertaken by fully trained rope access technicians. 

Installation is carried out by experienced rope access technicians who are familiar with the levels of careful handling associated with Texlon® ETFE foil systems. The various components making up the system are specially manufactured and require the most sensitive levels of care and attention during transport, handling and installation.


All projects start with a handover meeting between the dedicated internal project manager and the site installation teams to discuss the project in detail including examination of drawings, standard and non-standard details, site location and layout.


Regardless of a project’s size or complexity, we combine global experience with local knowledge to deliver high quality projects. All site works are planned and carried out to ensure that the final installation has been delivered to the highest quality in terms of functionality and aesthetics.

MAINTENANCE

ETFE roof and facade maintenance service - Always by your side

It is essential that the Texlon® ETFE systems are correctly maintained to ensure optimal performance and longevity of both static and moving components. Regular maintenance of Texlon® ETFE “live” inflated systems and single membrane systems is a skilled operation. 

We have dedicated rope access teams specially trained to maintain the ETFE installation to the highest standard. Our on-going commitment to training ensures each Vector Foiltec operative is able to provide advice on all aspects of the technology. 


Sharing our vast technical knowledge and expertise provides clients with assurance and peace of mind that the Texlon® ETFE system will perform over the course of the building’s life.

Texlon® ETFE inflated installations are “live” systems – the optimum operating pressures are maintained by permanently connected inflation units responding to ‘feedback’ signals.

It is necessary to perform visual and physical inspections throughout the lifecycle of the Texlon® ETFE installation to identify damage at roofs or facades and repair it at an early stage .

The Vector Foiltec ETFE roof maintenance services include:

• Comprehensive maintenance and inspection of all ETFE elements, as roofs and facades

• Survey of ETFE installations

• Rope access services including inspection, localised repair, cleaning, etc.

• Fabrication and installation of bespoke architectural components

• Ventilation servicing, installation and environmental control assessment
