Structurflex is one of the world’s leading producers of fabric architecture. We design, engineer, fabricate and build coated PES, PTFE and ETFE tensile membrane tensile structures and tensile facades for customers throughout the world. Because we understand the close connection between architecture, engineering and construction, our tension fabric structures set a very high standard in detail and functionality. We make sure the customer’s needs are at the forefront of every decision.
At the core of our ability is an effective connection between design and advanced engineering. Structurflex works closely with architects, engineers, construction professionals and owners to create inspiring and successful solutions. The most important outcome for us is that everyone we work with – suppliers, consultants and customers – has a really satisfying experience.
Traditional building materials are unable to match the design flexibility, light-transmitting qualities and visual impact of coated PES, PTFE and ETFE fabric architecture. The tensile fabric structures we create are lightweight, light-filled and strong enough to withstand the most extreme weather conditions. Our designs win awards, as well as the hearts of those who choose Structurflex.
Structurflex has a firm commitment to ongoing research and development when it comes to tensile membrane structures. We’re determined to remain at the forefront of emerging technologies, so our engineers, designers and project managers maintain a rigorous continuing education program of conferences and networking events.
Structurflex serves customers worldwide with operations in the United States, New Zealand, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. With over 75 years experience working with coated PES, PTFE, and ETFE structures, the knowledge we have gained has produced an impressive portfolio of successfully executed tension membrane structures.

We are pleased to have collaborated with KieranTimberlake and the outfit of a parking structure on the Rice University Campus. In their blog post, they describe the concepts they employed to create an iconic sculptural element. For more details see the KieranTimberlake blog post.The Increasing Importance of Durability
While tensile fabric has several distinct advantages over more traditional materials like glass, one of the most important may be its ability to withstand severe weather events. Our tensile structures and tensile facades in Miami, Jacksonville, Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Atlanta did not sustain any damage or require any repair despite enduring events ranging […]
