Dear Business Partner
It is our top priority to serve you in the best possible way, despite the current turbulences with the Corona virus. I therefore want to give you an update on the status of the Sefar Group, which also includes Monosuisse.
• The Sefar Group complies to all the local regulations with respect to the containment of the Corona virus.
• We have taken additional internal precautions to assure the continuation of our production and the deliveries to you.
• All of our spinning and weaving plants worldwide are currently operating without limitations.
• There is a possibility of national restrictions in countries, where we operate our decentralized fabrication units. This may cause delays in fabricated items. For details, please contact your local Sefar subsidiary.
• Global limitations on freight capacity, in particular for air shipments, may also affect the delivery time.
Being a fully integrated supplier, Sefar controls and ensures the entire supply chain of our technical fabrics, from the yarn production at Monosuisse to the shipping of the fabrics or the finished articles. You are in good hands at Sefar.
Should your operation face any supply challenges where we might be able to help, please let us know. Your contact person is reachable at any time.
We will keep you updated on any changes affecting our delivery performance.
I wish you good health!
The term ‘membrane building’ is used for spatial structures made out of tensioned membranes. In this type of construction flexible and thin sheet materials are used, which are easily plastically deformable and are only statically stressed by tension, not by pressure. Membranes can be different in this respect; for instant they can be films or (coated or uncoated) textiles (fabrics, knitted fabrics and other textile fabrics) — e.g. polyester fabric having PVC coating, glass fiber fabric having PTFE coating, PVC film and ETFE film. In traditional tent construction (also known as ‘tentage’), animal skins or leather and hides have also been used as membranes.
The terms membrane construction and textile architecture are often used almost synonymously. However, they are not really the same. For example, membranes made of fiber-free film or leather are not textiles in the strict sense of the word; and, conversely, rope nets or woven textiles can be used in textile architecture, but not in membrane constructions. However, in the case of coated woven textiles, the concept of the membrane has now become established.
