What Is PES?

Polyvinyl coated membranes or mesh often have additional protective PVDF fluoropolymer coatings on both sides, which helps protect the surface and also creates an easy-to-clean membrane.

What Is Coated PES Used For?

  • Decorative facade screens
  • Permanent structures
  • Temporary structures
  • Structures in extreme climates
  • Covered walkways
  • Outdoor classrooms
  • Event spaces
  • Stadia
  • Building entrances
  • Temporary structures
  • Retractable structures

Type 1A
Ventilated PES

Most common and economical mesh type for façade screens (buildings, parking garages, stadiums) to provide shading/screening, lower heat gain, maintain views out, and maintain open air flow.


Type 1B
Waterproof PES

Most common and economical mesh type for canopies and some select façade screens to provide shading and plenty of daylighting.

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 […]
