Tensile structures give an exciting new look to a customer’s establishment and a highly effective way to utilize outdoor space during the summer.

Customers get years of low cost, low-maintenance repairs out of their canopies. To explain, the permanence of these structures eliminates the need for deconstruction for repairs. Depending on the fabric selected, your warranty period can be as long as 25 years.

Tensile structures combine pleasing aesthetics with structural efficiency, using lightweight materials in tension. Shade structures produce shade by using mesh materials. Tensile structures are versatile in many applications. 

Event spaces, grandstand covers, stage covers, and public places utilize large spans. Meanwhile, outdoor restaurants, rooftop bars, and private areas in residential and pool areas all have the potential to utilize smaller tensile structures. Many of these spaces require protection from the sun and weather protection while maintaining an outdoor atmosphere.
