Denver International Airport was completed in 1993 in Denver, Colorado, USA. Constructed with over 57,000m
Denver International Airport, or DIA as it is commonly referred to, uses SHEERFILL membrane to create a double-layer fabric roofing system over its terminal’s Great Hall.
The lightweight, translucent properties of the material allowed for imaginative building and an overall aesthetically pleasing result, while allowing for greater spans of material than the traditional roofing systems.
The construction of this roof decreases maintenance costs and increases durability. Since the airport is in a cooler climate, the tensile membrane roof is able to withstand cool temperatures and heavy snowfalls, proving that SHEERFILL is a cost effective, smart and energy efficient solution.
