Supporting Facilities for Residential Areas with Modern Shade Structures in Gambia

The Republic of the Gambia is located at 13 ° 28 'north latitude, 16 ° 39' west longitude, western Africa, and west of the Atlantic Ocean. The coastline is 48 kilometers long and covers an area of 10690 square kilometers.

In terms of the shelter structures itself, in addition to its unique decorative effect, it can be more difficult to meet the requirements of other architectural forms through its rich and convenient form. In addition to some iconic buildings (sculptures, flower beds, fountains, etc.) in a residential area, it must not lack necessary supporting facilities.


1.Business club
This is a comprehensive facility with leisure, entertainment, shopping and other facilities for owners who will stay in the community in the future. The space on the top floor is also fully utilized as an outdoor cafe. Similarly, the fabric tension building here will also be combined with lighting facilities, echoing the membrane structure on the roof of the residential building to form a colorful nighttime landscape of the community.
2. Entrance and exit of underground garage

 At present, most middle-to-high-end residential areas have garages, and the use of membrane structures in the design of the entrance and exit of the garage is a creative idea. Although this medium-membrane structure garage entrance is no longer a new concept abroad, but the domestic membrane structure is still in an emerging stage. A newly designed and cleverly conceived membrane structure garage entrance not only plays the building performance of ordinary building materials, but also adds highlights to the community environment.


3.parking lot 
 With the acceleration of urban modernization, cars have become an indispensable means of transportation in any city. Due to the rapid development of the automobile industry in China, the number of cars owned by cities has increased exponentially, but urban construction planning has not been able to adapt to this development requirement as quickly as possible, and often there is no place for parking. Therefore, the issue of parking lots should be fully considered in the planning of construction groups, and the construction and planning of parking lots as an important part of modern urban construction planning has become increasingly important. Similarly, fabric structures also play an important role in the construction of parking lots.
People living in modern cities have stepped from the past social behavior for the purpose of earning a living to a new level for the purpose of "music life", and have pursued a spiritually healthy, pleasant and humane cultural environment. The modern built environment is a comprehensive representation of modern cities, modern culture and society, and the lives and concepts of modern people. In terms of showing people's individuality, self-entertainment and diversified environmental spaces, the membrane structures architecture, with its unique architectural form, will surely be used more and more widely in environmental construction.

How is the Membrane Architecture Increase Stability in Philippines?

The Republic of the Philippines is located in the Western Pacific. It is a multi-ethnic archipelago country in Southeast Asia, with an area of 297,700 square kilometers and a population of 110 million.
How to strengthen membrane structure building? In daily life, the canopy construction we use the most is even a parking shed. In some areas, wind and rain are frequent. At this time, we need to strengthen the membrane structure parking shed according to actual needs. 

The main structure of most tensile roof structures parking sheds is a metal keel and a membrane top structure. The metal keel is connected with a metal bracket and the ground plane. The area of the ground plane is the key to the stability of the membrane structure parking shed. We can usually add stainless steel columns The method to increase the firmness of the parking shed is as follows: Add a foundation of 15-20 cm near the original metal pillar 5-10 cm, install a stainless steel pipe with a diameter of not less than 5CM, and the keel support on the top of the shed Welding is the most effective way to strengthen it.

We can also reduce the resistance to wind and rain by changing the membrane material with higher toughness and smoothness, and increase the tension of the fabric shelters in disguise to increase the firmness.
We also have a little trick to increase the firmness of the membrane structure parking shed, because the reason for the formation of the membrane structure parking shed is that the roof is spread out according to the tension of the membrane material, so we can connect the roof with stainless steel pipes. This can effectively resist the attack of wind and rain.
The above is the answer to how to strengthen the membrane structure building.

The Most Commonly used Membrane Material in Fabric Tensile Structures

1.PTFE membrane material
PTFE membrane material refers to a composite material formed by coating PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) resin on a base cloth woven with ultra-fine glass fibers.
Its characteristics are: high strength, good durability, fire and flame retardant, good self-cleaning, and not affected by ultraviolet light, the service life is more than 20 years; it has high light transmittance, light transmittance is 13%, and transparent The light passing through the membrane material is naturally diffuse and does not produce shadows or glare. The reflectivity of solar energy is 73%, so it absorbs less heat. Even in the case of sun exposure in summer, the interior of the building will not be affected. Too much impact.

At present, the development and application of this kind of membrane material are relatively mature abroad, and there are many manufacturers, such as Germany Mehler Company, Verseidag Company, Japan Taiyoko-gyo Company, Zhongxing Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., United States Chemfab Company, Saudi Arabia ObeiKan Company and so on.


2.PVC membrane material
PVC membrane material is a composite material formed by coating PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resin on the base fabric woven with polyester fiber. The strength and fire resistance of PVC film material have a certain gap compared with PTFE. The service life is generally 7 to 15 year.

In order to solve the self-cleaning problem of PVC membrane materials, PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) is usually applied on the PVC coating to form PVDF membrane materials.


3.ETFE architectural membrane
ETFE architectural membrane is made directly from ETFE (ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer) raw material. ETFE not only has excellent impact resistance, electrical properties, thermal stability and chemical resistance, but also has high mechanical strength and good processability.

In recent years, the application of ETFE membrane materials can replace other products in many aspects and show strong advantages and market prospects. This membrane material has particularly good light transmission. It is called "soft glass" and is light in weight. %; Good toughness, high tensile strength, not easy to tear, ductility greater than 400%; strong weather resistance and chemical resistance, melting temperature up to 200 ° C; can effectively use natural light and save energy; good acoustic performance .The self-cleaning function makes the surface difficult to be stained, and the small amount of dirt can be taken away by the rain. The cleaning cycle is about 5 years.


In addition, ETFE membrane can be pre-made into thin membrane bubbles, which is convenient for construction and maintenance.

ETFE also has shortcomings, such as the external environment is easy to damage materials and cause air leakage, high maintenance costs, but with the construction of large stadiums, tourist venues, waiting halls, etc., ETFE highlights its own advantages.At present, there are very few companies producing such membranes. Only a few companies, such as ASAHIGLASS (AGC), Asahi Glass, and Cowell, Germany, can provide ETFE membranes. The research and development and application of this membrane are not more than ten Years of history.

The total area is 13,878 square kilometers, of which more than 20 islands are inhabited. It has a subtropical climate with an average annual temperature of 23.5 ° C.

What are the construction methods of the outdoor shade cover? The success of the membrane structure canopy building, in addition to looking at the overall appearance and stability of the overall quality, the treatment of details is also very important. The quality of the welding of the membrane structure also plays a decisive role.

People often marvel at the magnificence of membrane structure buildings when they admire roof fabric, and when they see the sketches of membrane structures, they are deeply attracted by their dexterity and elegance. However, in actual construction, whether it is a large-scale membrane structure venue of tens of thousands of square meters, or a small piece of membrane structure of several square meters, it is not only composed of a single piece of membrane material, but is formed by splicing many membrane pieces.

 The welding methods are hot gas welding, heating unit welding and high frequency welding, and the welding connection structure has the following methods:

First. One-sided welding of diaphragms of the same material and thickness, or two-sided welding of poor covering diaphragms.

Second. The double-sided cover membrane is staggered into thicker contacts. Staggered contacts can reduce the discontinuity of load transfer.

Third. The diaphragm with the same material and thickness is used, but the cover diaphragm is divided into two half layers and welded on both sides, so that the load can be smoothly transmitted.

Fourth. After cutting the membrane structure membrane into a tooth shape and connecting, the link length for transmitting load can be increased.

Fifth. The contacts of the high-strength double-layer membrane can be formed with thicker contacts by double-sided staggered covering membrane.

The above are the answers to the construction methods of membrane structure canopy welding. If you want to know more about membrane structure engineering, please consult BDiR Inc.

How to Design Drainage for the Fabric Architecture?

How to design drainage for membrane structure building? After the tensile membrane structure is generally built, it will face many different types of weather, of which rainy days are inevitable, so drainage is the key point, and good drainage design is the key point.

How to design drainage for canopy architecture.Membrane structure building design should reasonably determine the drainage slope and drainage position according to the use characteristics of the building and the general plane requirements to ensure smooth drainage of the membrane surface; in areas with heavy snow loads, a larger membrane surface gradient and necessary Snow protection measures.

Tensile membrane structures drainage design can use unorganized drainage or organized drainage. Due to the peculiar shape of the membrane structure building and the free-form surface, the reasonable way of modeling and drainage should be fully considered. Textile architecture drainage slope requirements are greater than general buildings. The flat film slope is more than 15% ~ 20%, and the hyperbolic membrane ridge should be greater than 10%. At the same time, the pretension of the membrane surface is above 1.0 ~ 2.0 Thousand Newtons per Meter, which prevents the membrane material from undergoing large deformation under the action of rainwater, thereby causing water accumulation and water pockets on the membrane surface. 

Membrane area water has the characteristics of Matthew effect. The accumulated water will cause local depression deformation, which in turn will aggravate the phenomenon of accumulated water. Sufficient slope, curvature and tension levels are necessary to ensure smooth drainage. The design of membrane structures such as aqueducts, aqueducts, and downspouts should be coordinated with the structural design of membrane nodes.

Large-scale public membrane structure buildings (3000 square meter) or more should adopt organized drainage; small open membrane structure buildings (under 500 square meter) can adopt unstructured drainage; medium-sized public membrane buildings (500 square meter ~ 3000 square meter) should be based on their elevation, confinement and open Select appropriate drainage form, partly free drainage and structural organization drainage.

How to Clean & Maintain the Membrane Structure Carport?

If the Tensile membrane structure carport has been used for several years, how to remove the dust on the fabric shade surface?

The fabric of tension membrane structure has a good cleaning function, but due to the influence of external factors will eventually cause dirt accumulation. For example: air pollution, deciduous bird waste, precipitation etc. From a technical perspective, the fabric structure car parking shade does not need to be cleaned. However, from an aesthetic point of view, regular cleaning of the membrane structure carport cloth can maintain the beauty of the membrane structure. 

1. The membrane structure carport should be regularly cleaned with a cleaning agent. The membrane structure carport will be coated with a coating material for the surface treatment layer. When cleaning, pay attention not to use some cleaning agents, strong solvents, hard brushes and other cleaning agents and methods for cleaning. In this way, not only the cleaning effect is not achieved, but also the life of the membrane surface of the membrane structure shade may be affected.

2. The cleaning frequency must be combined with the actual situation. The cleaning membrane structure parking shed is generally combined with normal maintenance. Therefore, under normal circumstances, it is necessary to routinely check the equipment to ensure that the membrane structure is stably combined. 1-2 regular inspections and maintenance are performed every year. 

3. Membrane structure carport For special environments, some membrane structure parking sheds need to be cleaned and maintained. Before the rainy season and rainy winter, the membrane surface should be inspected and cleaned up. The membrane surface drainage system should be normal to prevent the occurrence of standing water. Clear water or snow in time. If rain and snow continue, the accumulated water will cause damage to the membrane.

The Construction of the Car parking Shed Tensile Structure and the Production Process

why should we build a Car parking shed tensile structure?
First, why do you want to live in the house? You think that the car has no life. Do you know that if the car is blowing in the sun and rain, will it be more than twice the original use period? It is like a car you originally used. It can be used for 10 years. There may be less than 3 years of use in the wind, the sun and the rain. Don't forget that the structure of the car is steel, and oxidative rust is inevitable, even if the advanced car is just the same. You can't see the naked eye inside, don't forget that the rain is acidic, it will speed up the erosion, the sun is also very scary, it will age, the wind is also the wind, it will erode, and the parking shed can not only Wind and rain, you can also block high-altitude parabolic! 


Reasons for building a Car parking shed tensile structure and the production process
Second, what is the production process of the parking structure of the membrane structure?
So, how should it be divided into different categories is the decision to adopt the Shenzhen film structure carport production process? I think it can be started from the following aspects: First, the geographical location of the carport is accurate. The delineation of the carport is recognized as the promotion of the theme of the entire community environment. It is to properly handle the relationship with the property and land authorities. Second, it is necessary to proceed from the desire to build a harmonious community. After the coordination with other owners, it is necessary to further develop The construction plan; the third is to pay attention to the addition of membrane structural materials, play a supporting role of new material technology. 


In the future, the material that is dominated by the information industry is a new era of application. It is a new idea to start energy saving and reduce emissions. It plays a powerful era of music and perfects the details of the programming platform. We pay attention to all aspects of the film structure carport production process, and we will get it in a longer period of time. Prepare the necessary information. Establishing a long-term mechanism of fair coordination and operational coordination requires us to further improve and improve with the help of existing platforms. When we humbly accept the suggestions of other owners of the community and put them into practice, it is the complete transformation of our Yunnan membrane structure carport. 


Building a harmonious community of environmental protection, economy, pragmatism and efficiency requires us to cut through the process of perfecting the membrane structure of the carport. It is an opportunity to seek to have an intrinsic affinity. It can be to further create the necessary conditions and search for those. The main material with special functions will go all out to build a compact and functional membrane structure carport as the ultimate project goal. When this vision is gradually implemented, it is achieved, and the quality of our own ability is that there is a great degree of leap.
