Tensile Structures

Fabric can be used to enhance, to protect and to hide. All these features can be incorporated into a fabric structure. It is a building solution that has been used from biblical times to the modern day and incorporates some of the most technical high profile buildings.

Fabric selection is a key component in any tensile fabric project. Modern fabrics are highly engineered and versatile and allow the designer to utilise their properties to achieve the desired look and feel.

  • Transparent fabric gives a continuity between inside the structure and out
  • Translucent fabrics give a diffuse natural light with light shade
  • Opaque or block out fabrics allow the lighting within a space to be fully controlled.

Fabrics are available in different weights and with different types of base cloth.

A range of typical fabrics used:

  • PVC coated Polyester, weights from 500 gsm to 1000 gsm
  • Canvas & Poly Canvas weights from 450 gsm to 700 gsm
  • Acrylic weights from 150 to 450 gsm
