Terrestrial Structures

L.Garde’s innovations extend down to the surface of the earth as well.  Customers of all sorts call on L.Garde to use its expertise in deployable and light weight structures to solve challenging Earth bound problems


L.Garde has developed a Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) panel that can be integrated or retrofitted into existing shelter walls.  The MLI panel is constructed from a series of thin metalized polymeric film sheets that are strategically bonded together so that, when deployed, creates a multi-layer cellular structure. Features of the MLI panel are listed below:

  • R-value of 9.89 ft2 x oF x hr / BTU,
  • Weight of 8.77 oz/yd2
  • Can be folded and stowed to 1/125 or deployed volume (12 in. x 12 in. example shown above)

L.Garde has a long heritage of analytical capabilities especially in the area of light-weight structures that include large, deployable, and ultra-thin membrane structures. L.Garde uses a range of computational tools to complement our highly talented human capital with years of accumulated specialized knowledge and skills.
