Bespoke Double Conic in Maesteg, Wales

29 April 2013

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed a bespoke 9m x 5m 'Double Conic' tensile fabric structure as part of the outdoor market regeneration in Maesteg, Wales.

With the market due to open in a few weeks, the canopy provides the focal point for the area and will double up as a cover for the stage and performance area due to be built underneath it.

The design incorporates a strengthened steel superstructure for the estimated 1000kg of audio visual and lighting equipment due to be hung from it!

Also fundamental to the design is an integrated and internal water drainage system. A feat of creativity turned what is in essence a free draining conical structure into one that will collect the water landing on the canopy and channel it through the booms, down the masts and out below finished floor level. Perimeter scalloped canopy up stands and custom draining stainless steel membrane plates keep the elegant look of the structure but add function to its form. All steel work is galvanised and painted for extreme corrosion protection. The canopy is a high specification Ferrari Pre-Contraint PVC coated polyester fabric in 'Tuscan'.

The double conic was installed in just over a day using a telehandler and we finished ahead of program. 

We'll put some pictures up of the finished area just as soon as we get some. In the meantime here are some from the build.

22m x 10m Double Crest at Highfield Humanities College, Blackpool

26 October 2012

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed a 22m x 10m Double Crest at the newly built Highfield Humanities College, Blackpool.

The new tensile structure complements the 8m Crest we designed and installed at the College earlier in the year.

Working for Eric Wright Construction and landscape project architects Plincke, the installation was completed in just two days with the aid of a 50T crane and cherry picker.

The 220m2 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 22m x 10m Double Crest is now part of our growing range of tensile fabric structures and is available for off the shelf installation UK wide.

Please contact us for a quotation or more information.
