Why Tension Membrane




Tension membrane structures can be defined as any structure where a pretensioned fabric is used to provide a dynamic roofing or artistic solution.


Applications include:
  • Car park shading
  • Childcare play areas
  • Shade around hotel and resort pools, bars, restaurants and open spaces
  • Stadium roofing
  • Shopping center roofing
  • Feedlots and dairy farms
  • Parks and recreational facilites
  • Atriums and skylights
  • Amphitheatres


Tension Membrane Structures provide both aesthetically pleasing and functional roofing solutions. The obvious advantages of tension membrane include:
  • The ability to shape the fabric to heighten the profile and aesthetics of a development;
  • They are considerably lighter in weight than traditional structures, reducing compressive loads on walls and columns;
  • They are less expensive than glass or polycarbonate as a roofing product where a translucent finish is required;
  • Construction and erection times are significantly less than traditional materials.
  • They require less ongoing maintenance than glass or polycarbonate roofing;
  • They allow architects and designers uninhibited use of their imagination.
  • Creating convection currents to considerably reduce ambient temperatures in outdoor or “al fresco” situations.
  • Providing lightweight additions to conventional buildings for weather protection at entries and walkways. Providing the potential to increase usable areas around restaurants and bars.
  • A lifespan to 30 plus years.
