The history of membrane structure is dated back to 1896 when a Russian engineer developed practical calculations of stresses and deformations of tensile structures. He designed a-27000-square meter membrane structure for Nizhny Novgorod Fair Lovering. Since then, many designs have been created using membrane structure because of its light weight and easier to be constructed especially when a vast open area need to be covered.
Many public and private area have been covered with membrane structure. From a simple, yet, elegant car park to sport stadium have been covered. With its fabric-like properties, many unique and aerodynamic design can easily created using membrane structure material. We have a saying in our team “if you can sketch it, we can build it”.
We used 2 kinds of fabric, Serge Ferrari and Agtex. Serge Ferrari is a public company based in France. Founded in 1974, Serge Ferrari is the founder world leader manufacturer of Précontraint technology for tensile membrane fabric. Serge Ferrari have a vast collection of membrane fabric based on its application. For membrane structure, we normally used Précontraint 502 S2 – Précontraint 1202 S2 depending of the wide span of the structure. The sample of fabric specification can be found here. Agtex is made by PT Ateja Grace Texindo which is the pioneer of fabric coating technology in Indonesia. Agtex is first produced and marketed in 2014 using European state-of-the-art technology. The fabric specification can also be found here.
Awning & Umbrella
Rain and sunlight, two most concerning elements when we talked about comfortable of the living space. These two elements had been a concern since the old days. Ancient Egyptian and Syrian used what they called “woven mats” to shade their market stall and their houses. The oldest written text about the used of fabric-like material came from a Roman poet Lucretius, in 50 BC, saying “Linen-awning, stretched, over mighty theaters, gives forth at times, a cracking roar, when much ’tis beaten about, betwixt the poles and cross-beams”. Since then, the material used to shade us from rain and sun has evolved tremendously. We are now used to a canvas fabric in awnings and umbrellas.
Not long after that period people started manufacturing a retractable awnings. The first retractable awning was produced and installed in the second half of the 19th century. Retractable awnings gave the owner a sort of control over the weather. When the heavy rain comes or the sun gets really hot, the owner, or the home automation system, can unroll the awning for a quick protection. Nowadays, there are many options of retractable awning and umbrella that can be used depending of the functionality and the ecstatics.
Normally used for vast open space. A single pergola can go up to 12 m long and 9 m wide. It can hold up to 40 kilometer per hour of wind speed and can be added a rain gutter at the front of the pergola. If the area is bigger that the maximum size, few pergolas can be joined to create a bigger dimension. Using European component in our pergola system will ensure the quality and lifetime of the pergola we installed. The fabric used in pergola is a membrane fabric
Retractable awnings use several arms to hold the bottom bar upward and create a nice shades. This type of retractable awning can be operated manually or motorized and can be connected to home automation system. A single retractable awning can be 5,5 m long and 4,5 m wide. The difference between pergola and retractable awning, beside the maximum size, is that when several retractable awning installed together (side by side) there will be a 25 cm gap between the awnings. Our retractable awning used a European component with combination of Sunbrella fabric of Sattler fabric.
Umbrella awning is the most common retractable awning today. It is used in many outdoor cafes and coffee shops. The minimalistic design give the owner an instant and temporary solution when the sun gets really hot. Depending on the location and function, the pole can be placed at the center or at the side of the umbrella and the shape of the umbrella can be circle or square. A single umbrella can be produced up to 3 m wide and it give enough space to put a table and 4 chairs beneath.
Stretch ceiling is a suspended ceiling material that can be used to transform room’s standard lighting into spectacular lighting design. It consists of 2 basic component, aluminum tracks along the perimeter and PVC stretch membrane. It used to use as a common ceiling material in substitute of gypsum in which it takes shorter time to install and smoother finish product. The translucent line of product is normally used as decorative lighting as well as main source of lighting. With its characteristic that similar with fabric, it is a perfect replacement of acrylic which harder to cut and bend.
Various application has been applied using stretch ceiling material in column, wall, back wall, and, of course, ceiling. Another advantage is that the material is printable. So, forget about the boring light box with any common shape. Try shaping it as unique as you like. Click here for more info.
Indoor and Outdoor Roller Blind
Roller blinds is one of types of window covering that is commonly used nowadays. The easy maintenance feature is one of the key factor that window blind, especially roller blind, widely use not only for office space but also in apartments and houses. There are 2 kinds of system we provide in our company, manual and motorized system. quality and lifespan of the manual roller blind is depend on the component that is used to rolled the fabric. We use Tachikawa blind component (ex Japan) for our indoor blind and Siplan component (ex Spain) for our outdoor blind.Those 2 brand help us to ensure that every person that bought and installed our blind will experience a great blind that easily operate and will keep functioning well. For motorized system, we used 2 kinds of motor, Somfy motor system and Lutron motor system. During more than 10 years of our experience in assembling roller blinds, those 2 motor system give us a peace of mind that every motor blind we sold will serve its purpose for many years to come.
Manual Roller Blind
Manual roller blind can be installed in indoor and in outdoor.
As indoor blind, roller blind normally use as window covering that help reduce the heat and light (or even completely block the light) that come inside the room. Maximum span that we recommend for indoor blind is 3,5 m wide and 2,5 m tall. We can assembly roller blind more than that size but the operational will be more difficult as it will be more weight from the fabric. Roller blind with more than 3.5 m wide can produce a slight wrinkle, caused by the bended head rolling tube that hold the fabric. Roller blind with more that 2.5 m tall will cause a longer chain and will make it easily tangled.
We used Tachikawa component for our indoor blind because of 2 key important features, durability and easier to operate. With Tachikawa component, blind with the same size and same fabric will be lighter to operate
When used as outdoor blind, roller blind normally used as a screen protection from rain. Widely used in outdoor cafe and balcony, outdoor blind normally installed combined with fix awning. We do not use indoor component (or chain component) for outdoor purpose because when indoor component installed outdoor it will easily be broken as it is not designed to withstand the rain and wind. This component is the most important factor that make sue the fabric stay nice and flat. In fact, we use component that similar with our retractable awning. Yes, it cause more but in the long run, it will be cost less and easily broken one.
Roller blind can also be operated using motor that is put inside the head rolling tube. It can be operated using remote, wall switch or even be connected to home automation system such as Google Assistant and Alexa. There are two motor system that we provide
Somfy motor system is founded in 1969 in France. The first product was tubular motor system for blind that revolutionized electrical operated blind in France. Today, they have every kinds of motor for every purposed. Their tubular motor can even used outdoor and can operate as heavy as retractable awning. They have motors for blinds, curtains and retractable awnings. Their motor can be operated using remote, wall switch and also voice commend using Google Assistant and Alexa
Lutron is started as a lighting control company in 1950 in New York, USA. They started by creating a lighting control that can fit into standard wall switch and can easily be installed within minutes. This idea changed the perspective of lighting control in that era. After its success with lighting control, Lutron enter the market of window covering to control the daylight. The goal is to create a perfect lighting experience the minute you enter a room, day and night. Yes, Lutron motor have a slight higher price that other motor system but it comes with more benefit. When it operates, it doesn’t produce any sound so it will not annoy you when opening blind in when you wake up. It can easily be connected with home control system and can be operated using wall switch, remote, and smart home system.
Open skylight is used since ancient Roman architectural. The idea is to let sunlight come inside the building as many as possible. Glass is often used for skylight but it comes with its on disadvantage. While the sun light come inside is brighten the room, the sun heat will increase the room temperature and in Indonesia, where the whole country is in the equator, this means that there are some times that the heat is unbearable. That is why under the glass skylight, people normally install skylight shades. This shade can be opened and closed using motorized system. It can be roman shade or roller shade and the fabric that is used as shade can be varied from canvas fabric, solar shade fabric or even black out fabric.
