Case Study 3: Dedmon Center

November 1st, 2010 / By: / Case Studies, Feature, Interiors

The Dedmon Center at Radford University, Radford, Va., recently replaced its fabric roof with a much improved and thermally efficient roof cladding of Tensotherm™ with Nanogel®, a sandwich of two layers of translucent, structural PTFE fiberglass membrane separated by a core of Nanogel aerogel insulation. For the 4831m2 Dedmon Center, the new roof more than quadrupled the original roof’s thermal insulation performance with a value of R-12 while maintaining the original roof’s daylighting capability. The new membrane has also allowed the facility to incorporate air conditioning, which previously had not been possible.
