  • The “Les Vagues” aquatic centre in Meyzieu, France was designed based on a High Energy Quality (HEQ) approach aimed at creating a healthy, comfortable environment for users by controlling environmental impacts of building construction and operation. Among the materials implemented to achieve this objective, Batyline composite membrane was installed as a tensioned ceiling.

    Batyline is an openwork material of remarkable lightness and flexibility: it allows very large tensioned areas to be covered just one piece without the need for heavy supporting structures.
    As a lightweight construction system, economic in raw materials and 100% recyclable, it is quick and easy to install, thereby reducing congestion during construction.

    A durable investment
    Batyline’s life expectancy is over 20 years in warm, humid, and chlorinated environments. This was one of the determining factors in material selection. No specific upkeep of the membrane and Silcord tensioning cables is required. The material is quickly and easily removed, so plenum access is simple: building maintenance operations and costs are therefore limited.

    An efficient acoustic solution
    Batyline’s acoustic performance characteristics are remarkable for such a thin, lightweight material. The composite membrane’s intrinsic absorption characteristics significantly curtail reverberation effects without installing additional insulating material, which can be aesthetically constraining, cumbersome and voluminous.
