Barrel Vault Fabric Canopy Walkway

Project Outline

Working as a sub contractor to Aura Custom Ltd, Base were responsible for the manufacture and installation of the tensile fabric membranes. To ensure that the fabric panels were a good fit, the steel frame was surveyed after it was fully installed in order to make minor adjustments to the patterns where necessary.

Our Solution

The barrel vault fabric panels are slid into an aluminium luff track extrusion on three sides. The panels are tensioned out by means of threaded studs on the membrane plates, the final tensioning being achieved with the adjustable cable in the pocket on the front edge. Base Structures offer various services to other partners in the tensile fabric industry.
