MATERIALS

Modern high performance fabrics have excellent lifespan and fire specifications to suit all applications. Some fabrics are completely recyclable making the complete structure including steelwork an environmentally friendly alternative. The organic forms and inherent strength enables fabric to cover large areas with few structural supports as the strength to weight ratio is high.
