The use of tensile fabric as a façade material is proving a highly effective solution with many benefits.
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.
Replacing a tired, old building is expensive. It can be far more cost effective to overclad with a dynamic new fabric façade.
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.
Large fabric panels can be installed quickly reducing construction programmes.
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.
