Canopy Cleaning and Maintenance Milton Keynes Theatre District

08 March 2012

With the Sun shining and the warmer weather on the way it's the perfect time to have your canopy cleaned.... That's exactly what the Theatre District in Milton Keynes has done... 

Having two 6m x 6m 'Mistral' tensile fabric structures (courtesy of Fabric Architecture) that are located right in the heart of the Theatre District MK. The canopies see a lot of daily traffic under them and they had been in situ for a number of years without being cleaned.

The results were startling. Upon leaving site after a hard day's scrubbing both canopies have been transformed and now sparkle! 

Tensile Solutions also perform a full health check and re-tension on all canopies or awnings cleaned and maintained.

Please contact us for further information or for a quotation.
