PREMIUM QUALITY FABRIC STRUCTURES

WELCOME TO OUR ONLINE SHOWROOM

We are pleased to present the most convenient and immediate solution to create multipurpose deposits and warehouses, avoiding unnecessary bureaucracy.

We have been building responsibly since 1999, using hot-dip galvanized HEA structural profiles, in compliance with the regulations governing the matter.

Our textile membranes are made with the finest Sattler PRO-TEX technical fabrics, they are fire resistant and guaranteed for 12 years.

Different geometries for specific uses, available in various models with standard widths from 8 to 24 meters and many options of internal useful height.

Textiles are now used in various applications in different fields, including the building industry. ‘Textile Architecture’ and ‘Fabric Structures’ are gaining new prominence in the construction world because of their multiple unique characteristics, such as the lightweight, low cost, durability, as well as the low energy consumption, flexibility, and resilience. In particular, textile structures are respected for their capability of enclosing large spans with minimal material use and construction time. These characteristics appear to offer the potential to develop a unique architecture that can also guarantee environmental sustainability.

Fabric structures have been used throughout history, from the early tents built by humans to provide shelters against harsh weather conditions where no natural shelters were available, up to the the present time where structures have been elaborated to meet the needs of more complex applications in different forms, shapes and sizes. The further development of high-quality materials has triggered a renaissance in textile architecture, yet the current lack of knowledge and the limited research on the development of textile architecture and the potentials of such unique structures and techniques in terms of developing sustainable urban contexts, is an ongoing issue.

Accordingly, the present paper aims to explore the historical development of textile architecture, and to shed light on the vast range of contemporary modern uses, and architectural applications, as well as discussing the future prospects of this unique sustainable architecture, which may influence the development of new ideas to create aesthetic and cultural contexts within the urban environment. The paper follows a descriptive-analytical research methodology, by tracing the development of such structures to clarify the recent worldwide progress in the field of architecture in terms of producing outstanding sustainable designs and technical solutions utilizing textiles.
