Etfe Pillows Views
ETFE (Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene) air pillows completely line the inner and out walls of the Water Cube. A single layer of the air pillows covers an area of 100,000 sq m., making the Water Cube the world's largest ETFE project. The Water Cube is also the only structure in the world to have an air pillow structure both on the inside and on the outside.
Comprising a steel space frame, it is the largest ETFE clad structure in the world with over 100,000 m² of ETFE pillows that are only 0.2/ mm (1/125 of an inch) in total thickness. The ETFE cladding allows more light and heat penetration than traditional glass, resulting in a 30% decrease in energy costs.
