Why Fabric?

     There are numerous advantages to using fabric tensioned structures. Steel structures are usually traditional and industrial in their appearance. They often times are more expensive than their fabric counterparts. Plus fabric canopies can be designed to create more visual impact than whole steel structures. In addition your color options are more versatile, and your structures application can be more customized. Some fabrics, like HDPE, are specifically used in shading applications due to their permeable properties. Steel structures are all impermeable which is ideal for rain protection but unfortunately it also traps hot air.

     The HDPE fabric shade structures have been found to be up to 15C cooler than conventional steel structures. Other fabrics, such as PVC, are used to create an impermeable cover to protect from both rain and sun. The warranties on fabrics vary depending on the type of fabric used but are both very extensive. An advantage with fabric is that it is usually much easier to replace than steel roofing. In areas of repeated tropical storms HDPE fabrics have been engineered to withstand hurricane wind and rain, with out removing the fabric. Plus an additional advantage is that you can remove and install your fabric if preferred. Some facilities remove the fabric to ensure no damage will be caused from flying debris. In winter seasons clients will can remove the fabric to extend the life of their investment, which can be easily done. Another option is to have your structure snow loaded and eliminate any need for removal. Their are numerous options in regards to shade and fabric tensioned structures. You can select the structures style, fabric, size, and colors. As a result your structure will create numerous benefits depending on your preferences.
