TENSILE STRUCTURES

What Are Tensile Structures?

Buildings featuring tensile structures have the ability to explore technology and form, ultimately resulting in structures that resonate with the community and complement existing architecture as well as the natural environment.

Structurflex systems are cost effective when compared to conventional structures, as their innovative form and inherent efficiencies lead to a reduction in the building materials required to build the structure.

The smooth, reflective surfaces of our tensioned membrane structures reduce lighting and cooling costs, reduce solar gain and make the buildings more energy efficient.

It is the combination of these factors that make Structurflex Tensioned Membrane Structures popular among architects and the public alike, and we receive many accolades and international design awards.
