More about this product

FabriTec Structures designs and builds tensile membrane structures for airports. They work with industry-leading architects, developers, and general contractors to produce some of the most iconic tensile airport structures around the world. FabriTec has built a variety of structures to support airport operations like awnings, covered walkways, covered entryways, porte-cochère structures for arrival and departure areas, and parking structures. The scalability of tensile fabric structures allows FabriTec to work efficiently on projects ranging from relatively small regional airports to some of the largest international airports.

At just a fraction of the weight of glass, the advanced membrane materials FabriTec crafts structures from require minimal structural support which allows them to create amazing, fanciful tensile membrane structures previously unimagined. FabriTec tensile membrane airport structures provide weather protection, are low maintenance, can be designed to allow filtered daylight, and are sustainable.


FabriTec has a long history of developing tensile structure projects in both design-build and design-assist roles.
