More about this product

FabriTec Structures designs and builds tensile membrane structures as either discrete or integrated components for train station architecture.

Built in half the time and at around half the cost of conventional construction, FabriTec precision-crafted tensile membrane structures give architects, city planners, and developers a great alternative to conventional construction. There are shapes, forms, and surfaces that can be created with a lightweight fabric architecture that cannot be replicated with any other method of construction.

FabriTec tensile fabric structures can be used for a variety of train terminal applications such as porte-cochère structures to cover entrances, canopy structures to provide weather protection over railway platforms, or as an integrated building envelope structure. Fabric structures are low maintenance, provide abundant natural light, and are sustainable.
