Introducing the Spindrift fabric garden canopy

25 July 2012

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the Spindrift.

A striking, contemporary and minimalist fabric structure designed to bathe your garden or outdoor space in shade.

The Spindrift is locally handcrafted and beautifully finished to the highest specification. Engineered for year round use the Spindrift can also easily be put up and taken down.

The frame is constructed from polished stainless steel that will last a lifetime and the canopy can be chosen from a wide range of architectural grade tensile fabrics.

The Spindrift is supplied in kit form for DIY installation. We can arrange installation if required. 

Please contact us for further information or a quotation.

8m Crest at Highfield Humanities College

04 July 2012

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed an 8m diameter Crest at the newly built Highfield Humanities College, Blackpool.

Working for Eric Wright Construction and landscape project architects Plincke the installation was completed in just one day using a telehandler and cherry picker.

The 50m2 fabric structure provides the students with some great outdoor shelter and the tensile fabric canopy is 100% waterproof and blocks 100% of UV.

With a marine specification paint system and stainless steel fixings, the fabric structure is designed, engineered and built to last in this tough costal environment. 

The 8m Crest is now part of our growing product range and is available for off the shelf installation UK wide.

Please contact us for a quotation or more information.

Tensile Solutions Cost Price Fabric Garden Canopy Offer!

01 July 2012

As seen in this month's Herefordshire & Wye Valley Life we are looking for stylish homeowners who may be interested in purchasing a stunning and contemporary fabric structure - 'The Spindrift' at cost price!

In January, we agreed with John Lewis to supply our first garden canopy 'The Roller' to them as part of their outdoor living range for gardens. The Roller will be on their website this summer and can be seen at

We are currently developing our second product ‘The Spindrift’ which we hope will feature alongside the Roller in the John Lewis range.

To help with this development we are looking for attractive house and garden settings for the Spindrift. The only requirement for this cost price offer is that we can take some photographs of the Spindrift in-situ and use the images on our website and potentially for John Lewis.

If would like to have a beautiful piece of landscape fabric architecture bathing your garden in shade or for more information, please contact Sam Walker on or 01989 730999.
