Protection from the sun and the Membrane lightweight structures has undoubtedly been an issue that we want to address due to the high temperatures that have been registered in Mexico in recent weeks.

According to the National Meteorological Service (SMN), temperatures exceeded 40 degrees Celsius in 16 states of the country.

In fact, April 30 was the hottest year in Mexico City in 14 years.

On that day, Mexico City reached a new record for high temperatures at 32.2 degrees Celsius, leaving the 2003 record in second place at 31.5 degrees.

Although there are many factors that influence the temperature of a region, the sun is the main player.

It is very common that Membrane lightweight structures are sought for a wide variety of projects with the main objective of protecting spaces from the sun without sacrificing aesthetics.

In addition to offering an attractive and harmonious visual appearance, the Membrane lightweight structures, unlike other types of solutions, also allow giving spaces natural light.

Depending on the material used in the membrane of the tensile structure, there are veils that manage to block even with an efficiency of 98.8 percent the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

In addition, Membrane lightweight structures are 90 or up to 100 percent waterproof depending on material.

For this reason, sun protection and Membrane lightweight structures often go hand in hand when an engineer or architect designs a project on the beach or in some arid region.

At Hyparch we have more than 15 years of experience in the manufacture and installation of velarias with high quality materials to protect spaces from the sun and UV rays.

We invite you to visit our projects gallery so that you know some successful cases of sun protection in beach destinations as well as in city destinations.
