Our universities are the leaders of sustainable building practices in Australia and here at MakMax, we are proud to support them.
Tensile membrane (fabric) structures have been used by tertiary institutions for decades as effective shade options for a variety of applications including tennis and basketball courts, swimming pools, eating and seating areas, tutorial rooms and lecture theatres, outdoor stages and amphitheatres. Using high-quality innovative fabrics such as polyvinylchloride (PVC), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and ethyl tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), fabric structures help protect students and staff from the harmful effects of UV rays, regulate temperatures, require less maintenance than traditional structures, reduce utility costs and can create multi-purpose areas that can be used all year round.
Titanium Dioxide photocatalyst coating (TiO2) is an innovation from the MakMax group that serves to reduce the negative effects of air pollution, provide an effective thermal barrier and extend the self-cleaning properties of your roofing structure, façade or umbrella. It works by utilising solar radiation to catalyse the decomposition of organic pollutants to keep the surface clean and to decompose nitric oxide (NOx) to purify the surrounding air. For more information about the mechanisms of TiO2, please download our free PurifyMesh30 catalogue from /downloads.
