DECADES OF EXPERIENCE
Structurflex’s experience with fabric manufacturing dates back to its ship sail-making days in the 1930s. We’ve come a long way and we continue to explore the most innovative design, engineering and manufacturing techniques.
As a specialty subcontractor, our work reaches a diverse market and wide geography. Due to the lightness and portability of our systems, our market has no geographic boundaries. Much of Structurflex’s work is used for sports, events, entertainment and exhibitions. We have been building custom tensile membrane structures for 30 years and have completed projects around the globe.
Our work is part of an overall larger building process where Structurflex serves as the specialty contractor for lightweight tensile structures.
All Structurflex projects designed to local and international building codes.
Membrane materials range from PTFE Fiberglass, ETFE, coated-PES, and tensile mesh.
Our membranes have a life expectancy of 20 to 40 years.
We offer a wide range of warranty options and long-term service agreements if desired by ownership.
Light transmission of 15% or more eliminates the need for artificial lighting by filtering in natural daytime lighting.
The membrane system is virtually maintenance free.
Pneumatic air inflated cushion systems may require periodic inspections.
All membrane systems are fabricated in our ISO 9001 facilities.
Currently Structurflex has operations in New Zealand, the United States, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates and Brazil. But our expertise is not limited to these countries. We’re keen to take on projects anywhere in the world. The practical knowledge we’ve gained over more than 75 years of working with technical membrane materials has led to a very impressive portfolio of successfully executive tensile membrane structures.
Our fabrication facilities in New Zealand and Malaysia employ 30+ staff. We have a mix of welding machines ranging from high-frequency welders to hot air and wedge welding machines. We also have high-end fabric plotters ranging up to 60′ long x 10′ wide (18m x 3m). Our custom built facilities are designed for quality and efficiency.
We fabricate all types of architectural fabrics and films including PTFE, coated-PES, ETFE, coated-PES mesh, and PTFE mesh.
The second phase of Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida is now complete: a 94,000 square- foot indoor practice “flex field.” The flex field includes a regulation-sized football field that will make it possible for the Jacksonville Jaguars football team to practice on the field year-round. Five cameras are installed throughout so the team can film […]Rice University Parking Garage Progress
The installation of the tensile mesh facade on the Rice University parking garage in Houston, Texas is underway. Located south of Allen Center, the seven-story, 159,500 sq ft parking garage will be clad in an extremely strong coated PES tensile mesh screening custom printed to realize the architects’ vision. Project architect KieranTimberlake wanted the appearance […]
