Tensile

Understanding your brief and project means we can see, predict or identify things that you may not be aware of. As specialist designers and installers of tensile architectural solutions, part of our fact finding is looking at the site and undertaking a site analysis: looking at sun direction, the view, weather conditions, orientation, noise, access points and so forth. When working with a large range of tensile solutions like, structural cables and rods to tensioned mesh, we have the fittings and the knowledge on their specification, application and know how they should be installed. Making sure your expectations are met is fundamental to your project’s success. Using the best products from around the globe means we can provide our clients with the right tensile designer and solution for their project. Tensile architecture is an exciting industry covering many facets: • Bracing cables • Green facades, Green wall solutions, Vertical gardens and Green building facades • Creative balustrades • Building facades and exterior building design • Stainless Steel Wire Rope for interior spacing and design • Webnet and Frames for bridge safety • Jakob Rope Systems • Animal enclosures • Children’s playgrounds • Catenary lighting systems Working with our highly experienced team in tensile systems, our clients love seeing their projects come to life.
