The extra mile

Our reputation has been built on the high standard of service we provide, which is why we simply refuse to compromise on quality. Particularly in the case of textile architecture, the integrity of the structure is dependent on the quality of construction fabric materials. That is why we work with only the best manufacturers in the world to ensure that we supply you with the highest quality textiles.

What is tensile architecture?

Tensile architecture is a structural system that relies primarily on tension as opposed to compression. It is sometimes referred to by one of the following names including:

  • Tension membrane architecture
  • Fabric architecture
  • Textile architecture
  • Tension structures
  • Lightweight tension structures

How to choose the right fabric?

It’s safe to say that architectural fabric structures differ greatly from structure to structure, therefore it only makes sense that the materials used in construction will also differ. Factors to consider before settling on which fabric to go ahead with, include:

  • Strength
  • Colour range
  • Longevity & durability
  • Cost

If you’re struggling to decide which fabric best suits your architecture textile design needs, we’ll be more than happy to assist you. While our Fabric Explorer is an effective means of narrowing down your fabric and textile purchasing options, in the case of tensile architecture we’d recommend that you simply get in touch with us and our friendly team of professionals who are keen to assist you.
