Type 1 –

PES

Type 1B – Waterproof PES

Main Benefits:

Additional Information:

  • Fire Rating: Fire-resistant, passing ASTM E-84 “class A” and NFPA 701 typically (independent fire testing available upon request)
  • Warranty: up to 20-year warranty on selected products
  • Lifecycle: Steel / Aluminum structure can be in continual use allowing for the fabric,  the least expensive element to be replaced after its estimated lifespan of 20+ years.
  • Geography: Works well in a variety of climates
  • Green: 100% recyclable

What is PES Membrane: 

Polyvinyl coated polyester (PES) non-ventilated fabric membrane with select manufacturers utilizing additional protective Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fluoropolymer and tio2 coatings on both sides for protection and longevity while creating an easy-to-clean surface

Type 1A – PES Ventilated Mesh

Main Benefits:

  • Applications: Most common and economical mesh type for ventilated facade screens (office buildings, parking garages, stadiums, roof screens) to provide shading/screening, lower heat gain, maintain views out, and maintain open airflow.
  • Cost: ($) Most cost-effective ventilated screening material

KieranTimberlake: Printed Tensile Cladding at Rice University


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 […]
