Techtextil in Frankfurt, Germany, is the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and non-wovens. The complex industry, with its countless products for industrial-manufacturing processes, will once again be taking the stage from 4 to 7 May 2015, offering architects the best chance to learn about the application of high-tech textiles in building construction. Roofs are the classic area of application.
Particularly large coverings demonstrate the range offered by the manufacturers and processors of these textiles. Besides numerous design advantages, textile construction also offers a huge amount of individuality. Textile components are always custom-made – which is what makes them so interesting for architects. Goal-oriented collaboration with the respective companies also guarantees the best possible results. (by Ulrich Büttner)
