A quick overview of tensile fabric

Tensile fabric is one of our fortes. In fact, our multi-disciplined team have designed, installed, inspected, cleaned, maintained and enhanced hundreds of PVC and PTFE structures for clients throughout the UK.

Our turnkey services may be underpinned by decades of expertise, but they’re cost-effective too. This means that whether we’re called out to inspect a large tensile fabric roof, conduct a high level clean on top of a vast atrium or replace a section of canopy, our bespoke solutions are delivered with quality, professionalism and budgets in mind.

If you’re not sure whether we can help you, why not get in touch for a chat? Our initial client consultations are complimentary!

Some frequently asked questions


Design & Installation

Any new enquiry begins with a free client consultation, so that we can understand your requirements and the nature of the project. We will then schedule a visit to your site to thoroughly research and specify the best-fit tensile solution for the job.

PVC is a great all-round, economical membrane for example, which ticks the recyclability box too. PTFE on the other hand, is a perfect alternative for larger structures due to its strength and durability, without any compromise of budgets.

But you can leave the design considerations to us. We’ll take into account the nuances of the structure, surroundings and overall brief, before designing the most suitable solution. Our aim is to guide you through any unfamiliar territory, in a clear and concise way.

Maintenance & inspections

Routine & efficiency

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)

Although your structure will have been built to last, adverse weather conditions, accidents, misuse and poor upkeep can all contribute to the deterioration of PVC and PTFE canopies over time. Our skilled tensile fabric experts can therefore provide a variety of services to enhance the life and appearance of your architecture.

We specialise in the preparation of bespoke inspection, cleaning and maintenance regimes, tailored to the requirements and environment of your fabric. So whether we need to diagnose problems, conduct on-site repairs or simply make structures shine by giving them a clean using industry-recommended products, all of this support is provided by the same, highly-skilled team.

This proactive approach to maintenance will maximise the longevity of your tensile structure, whilst optimising its appearance and saving money in the long run.

In case of emergency

It doesn’t matter how rigorous your maintenance and inspection regimes are, you can’t plan for the unexpected. But, in the event of an emergency, we can ensure your tensile canopy is safe, repaired and back to optimum condition, before the issue can escalate.

Because we have response teams located throughout the country, you can benefit from the support of our tensile fabric experts, sometimes within hours of making the call. We’ll diagnose the problem as soon as we can on arrival, before conducting the necessary repairs safely and as cost-effectively as possible. And, before we leave, we’ll offer any additional advice that will help to avoid similar emergencies in future.
