More about this product

FabriTec Structures designs and builds tensile membrane-covered walkways. Their covered walkway structures are the perfect building solution to provide visitors with weather protection and safety while they traverse a site. The lightweight, durable tensile membrane material FabriTec uses for structures requires minimal structural support which allows the creation of amazing, fanciful tensile membrane structures previously unimagined.

Tensile membrane-covered walkways allow designers a cost-effective solution to provide pedestrians shade from the sun, protection from snow and rain while reducing the risk of slips and falls from rain, snow, or ice. Lab tests show that tensile structures can reduce the temperature as much as 20 degrees in their coverage area. FabriTec advanced covered walkways are low maintenance, provide abundant amounts of filtered daylight, and are sustainable.


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