FabriTec Structures specializes in the design, engineering, and installation of innovative tensile membrane building envelopes. Their building envelope systems provide architects and developers with flexible solutions ranging from discrete building components such as membrane roofs and facades integrated into conventional construction, to complete membrane building envelopes.
While FabriTec sometimes utilizes PTFE and PVC materials for building envelopes, the most common material request is for ETFE membranes. ETFE is employed either in a single layer membrane or as a pressurized multi-layer cushion.
At just a fraction of the weight of glass the advanced ETFE, PTFE, and PVC membrane materials FabriTec crafts structures from requires minimal structural support which allows the creation of amazing, fanciful tensile membrane structures previously unimagined. FabriTec membrane building envelopes 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.
