A tension Structure is a structure that is characterized by a tensioning of the fabric or pliable material system (typically with wire or cable) to provide the critical structural support to the structure.
As the design-build community searches for new ways to reduce materials, improve sustainability and provide the highest quality user experience, they turn more and more to fabric structures and fabric architecture.
Fabric structures are characterized by having a rather small mass relative to the applied load, which is determined through an optimization process.
Fabric tension structures are very popular for covering large areas at a fraction of the cost when compared to traditional building methods.
With a wide range of fabric choices, tension structures have the flexibility to offer either shade only or all weather protection. And with woven mesh fabrics offering up to 93% and vinyl fabrics offering up to 99% UV blockage, there is bound to be a fabric that fits you budget and application.
