Installation of Shade Sails for Fabric Architecture Ltd

28 July 2011

Tensile Solutions installed 9no. 6m x 6m 'HyparShades' shade sails and 1no. bespoke 10m x 10m shade canopy for Fabric Architecture Ltd & Signature Structures Ltd at Sirius Academy in Hull.

Unlike traditional shade sails these are engineered to stay up all year round and have an integrated snow cable.

All these canopies were installed in just two (very long!) days ensuring that the both the main contractor, Balfour Beatty and Signature Structures Ltd schedules were kept on track!

Signature Structures Ltd HyparShade Shade Sail Installation

25 July 2011

Tensile Solutions installed a 6m x 6m Shade Sail on behalf of Fabric Architecture Ltd & Signature Structures Ltd at a new build school in Merseryside.

The fabric is a high specification knitted polyester shade fabric that comes in a range of bright and vibrant colours and blocks up to 95% of harmful UV ray.

The structure is located on the roof and will provide a sheltered play area away from the sun and rain. 

Lighting is also due to be integrated into the tall masts.

The pictures have not been photoshopped - the canopy really is that bright!
