UseCustom tensile membrane structures
CharacteristicsSpecially designed cables and fittings, customized, range of highly engineered membrane materials, cold-formed carbon support structures, sustainable, low maintenance
FabriTec Structures designs and builds tensile membrane canopies which are overhead roof structures that provide shade or shelter from weather conditions such as sun, hail, snow, and rain. FabriTec tensile membrane canopy structures are often utilized in city parks, outdoor eating areas, and other public spaces.
Built in half the time and at around half the cost of a conventional building, 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. Tensile fabric structures are low maintenance, provide abundant natural light, and are sustainable.
FabriTec has a long history of developing tensile structure projects in both design-build and design-assist roles.
