Tension Structures At Parks and Recreational Facilities

Parks & recreation

Tension fabric structures can enhance any greenscape by blending in or standing out among their natural surroundings. Fabric structures are typically found applied to bandshells, amphitheater roofs, open air event spaces, retail booths, and as shading for boat slips, parking lots, bench and picnic areas, and some even stand on their own as architectural sculptures.

Whatever their application, fabric structures are an ideal alternative to shelters made from traditional building materials. The translucent properties of PTFE and PVC membranes actually cool the surfaces below them better than wood, stone or metal decking, while transparent ETFE membrane transmits the same amount of light as glass but at only 5% the weight. Tensile membranes can take on many unique shapes and even mimic their surroundings.
