Sioen membrane for the impressive covered market place in Kastamonu, in Turkey. Kastamonu is the capital of the Kastamonu Province, Turkey with approximately 70.000 inhabitants.
Built in 2014, today the membrane already survived strong environmental conditions such as strong snowloads and winds. The fabric and the structure still stand strong. The membrane T3107 was used at the time. Today we suggest the T3117F Sioen Fluomax membrane for these type of projects. The 1650 Dtex polyester fabric is coated with PVC layers and with a special PVDF top coat.
The covered market place in Kastamonu is produced by Medo Tente, a Turkish manufacturer (based in Antalya) of tents, awnings, shadings and tensioned(suspended) structures. Medo Tente is an innovative company, offering creative solutions in hotel sun shading amongst others.
The Sioen T3117F is a Fluomax Type 3 membrane of 1150g/m². A low-wick, anti-bacteria treated, UV resistant and flame retardant PVC coated fabric with a directly weldable PVDF topcoat on both sides.
