Product description:
The Novum AFP-System (Air Filled Pillow Membrane System) is based on the following principle: pneumatically stabilised foil elements are attached to a substructure by means of a special aluminium section system. Depending on physical, structural or creative requirements and specification, the systems can be formed from 2 to 4 layers of foil made of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE). The U-values (heat transmission coefficient) and g-values (energy transmittance) of the Novum system are specified by the number of layers used and the type of colouring and printing. The ETFE foil thicknesses vary between 100 μm and 500 μm depending on structural constructive requirements. The individual layers are welded together at the edges and stabilised by a low-pressure support air system at approximately 250 Pa (250 N/m²).
This EPD is based on a typical three-layer system with the following structure:
·        Upper foil: 250 μm
·        Middle foil: 100 μm
·        Lower foil: 200 μm
The LCA for a representative product is calculated in this EPD.
