Fabric Façade Solutions

The use of tensile fabric as a façade material is proving a highly effective solution with many benefits.

key benefits

  • Quick to install and demount
  • Fully weatherproof
  • Easily adaptable
  • Mountable on existing structures
  • Ideal for unusual, large, complex, or curved apertures
  • Easy to clean

Architectural Impact

Fabric mesh was chosen to form an eye-catching wrap around the Ben Ainslie Racing HQ in Portsmouth.

The whole frontage of two NEC halls in Birmingham was overclad with backlit 3D shapes and printed fabric façades to provide a dramatic facelift.

Cost Effectiveness

Replacing a tired, old building is expensive. It can be far more cost effective to overclad with a dynamic new fabric façade.

Lightweight Construction

Together with a lightweight first fix steel framing system, the fabric façade puts significantly less loads onto the building compared with some other rain screen systems.

Fast Install

Large fabric panels can be installed quickly reducing construction programmes.

Climate Façades and Environmental performance

Overcladding delivers savings in energy, whilst still maintaining all important views out. Studies have shown up to 70% savings in power needed for cooling by overcladding a glazed building with a fabric mesh. It also increases the level of insulation and eliminates glare.

“The feedback that I have had from everyone who has worked with you and your team has been incredibly positive. From my point of view it has been a real pleasure to work with such a professional team.”

What is City Dressing?

The way people are using our municipal spaces is changing. With the advent of online shopping and changing recreational habits, we understand the need to diversify town centres, shopping districts and outdoor urban spaces into creative, experience-led environments. We understand the need to turn town centres into destinations, offering far more than the traditional shopping experience.

Cost Effectiveness

Replacing a tired, old building is expensive. It can be far more cost effective to overclad with a dynamic new fabric façade.

Lightweight Construction

Together with a lightweight first fix steel framing system, the fabric façade puts significantly less loads onto the building compared with some other rain screen systems.

We use modern design and construction methods. Our knowledge of tensile fabric systems also means that we can be trusted to choose the right materials and methods to ensure longevity and sturdiness. Our teams are fully qualified to work at height and we have many years experience liaising with town planners, councils and facility management professionals to get the best out of any municipal space construction or renovation.

Fast Install

Large fabric panels can be installed quickly reducing construction programmes.
