Tensile fabric is a term used to describe an architectural fabric that is erected under tension, ie., being pulled in different directions,typically using cables.
These fabrics are lightweight and flexible and are used in a variety of tensile applications such as roofs or interior and exterior coverings as they can attractively span large areas. They are also a cost effective solution when providing shade or weather protection for any living area.
Rigid structural elements, such as masts and cables, support the tensile fabric generating its peaks and valleys while creating the anchors that hold the material in place.
Synchron is the sole supplier of Ferrari fabric in the Southern Afican market.
fabrics are manufactured using the Ferrari PRECONTRAINT
hi-tech process that produces
textiles with exceptional qualities of UV resistance
,strength and long life. The Precontraint technology
ensures that the textile will retain its shape and its
inherent physical strength even under the tensions generated
by wind,rain, hail or other climatic conditions.
