Al Ajllan Tensile Structures
3 000 m²

Sioen produced 3 000 m² of its Fluomax type III membrane for the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Thuwal, a coastal village in the north of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. The town is experiencing an increase in business due to its proximity to the King Abdullah Economic City. The _King Abdullah University of Science and Technology_aspires to be a destination for scientific and technological education and research. By inspiring discoveries to address global challenges, we strive to serve as a beacon of knowledge that bridges people and cultures for the betterment of humanity.

A very nice highpoint structure with two standing columns for a huge playground at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology . The fabric was made in one piece, offering an extra attractive optical appearance.

Al ajllan tensile structures was founded in 2004 and has since focused on customers satisfaction. Over the years, the company has grown in to a major player in Saudi Arabia and other GCC States, offering design, manufacturing and fabrication of tensile structures.

Architecture and site planning plays an important part at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. The structure covering the playground in the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology is made of the Sioen Fluomax T3117F. A 1150 g/m² membrane for textile architecture consisting of a low-wick fabric, coated on both sides with a PVC paste and additionally lacquered with and PVDF coating. This membrane is flame retardant, UV stable, protected against fungus and weldable. This type III membrane is very well suited for halls, large tensioned structures and two and three dimensional textile structures.

The advantages of the Sioen Fluomax range are: state of the art seamless double-side knife-coated quality; clear white visual effect; anti-capillary low wicking treatment; flat, stable mechanical properties; perfect weldability; cleaning ability greatly enhanced; perfect UV resistance; protection against moisture; resistant to temperature variation; high abrasion resistance; largest choice of widths on the market.

The UV and the resistance to temperature variations, combined with the high mechanical properties, make this Sioen T3117F fabric the ideal membrane for tensioned projects in the region.
