Passirana di Rho

The true alternative to glass is ETFE: both transparent, but the thermoplastic polymer is extremely light and above all it is a sustainable and eco-friendly material”. As a matter of fact, our latest project confirms this!

The pneumatic cover designed and built by Canobbio Textile Engineering and installed by MB Montaggi SRL was used as a large skylight.

The ETFE cover is of the triple-layer “cushion” type, the cushions are stabilised by 1 unit with 2 fans and also with de-humidification function. Communication systems are provided between the cushions for the passage of air from one to the other so as to guarantee the static operating pressure to the entirety.
