Bespoke Double Hypar Canopy in Hertfordshire

14 July 2013

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed a bespoke double hypar, 8.5m x 5m, at a private residence in Hertfordshire.

With a design brief to provide both cover and provide a 'wow' factor for an outdoor eating and entertaining area, this bespoke double hypar fitted the bill perfectly.

The canopy is fabricated from a semi translucent PVC coated polyester so is waterproof and lets through 50% of the natural light. Six hand polished and rolled stainless steel masts (with integrated LED lighting) complement this elegant and striking tensile structure.

For more information about this project or to see if we can help you with yours, please contact us.

Bespoke Shade Sail at Stunning Wedding Venue in Herefordshire

17 August 2012

Tensile Solutions were contacted by a local wedding venue in Herefordshire with a design brief for a shade sail to conduct their wedding ceremonies under.

The sail was to be installed onto three existing walls and had to be easily and quickly erected when the bride and groom required some shade and shelter!

With marine grade stainless steel rigging screws and a bespoke, scultped HDPE sail of around 40m2, we think the results speak for themselves.

If you're planning fabric in your next project then why not call us on 01989 730 999.
