The experience of the airport begins as the passenger arrives at the terminal. Providing a canopy to protect from the environmental elements is important to creating a positive first step in the travel process. Through the lightweight tensile membrane canopies by Structurflex your terminal can be flanked by light-filled canopies that are protective and a fraction of the cost of comparable metal and glass solutions. Because of the reduced weight of the fabric membrane, it requires less structure and is durable within extreme weather climates. Beyond the technical components of our canopies, the unique component is design flexibility our systems allow.
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.
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 […]
