Surface tensile envelopes

Interwoven creative ideas
The degree of transparency and translucency of our tensile membrane can be adjusted according to use.
Solar heat gain can be managed with precision.

Tensile membranes can be delivered in a wide variety of shapes and colours that enables creativity of design: translucent roofs, perforated façades, curved and parabolic surfaces, smooth sides, faceted or straight edges, screen printing of graphics onto surfaces – all are available options.


Tensile textile membranes allow for the creation of volume using a minimal amount of material and energy. They offer shelter from inclement weather and have a low environmental impact.

When comparing the Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) of textile membranes and metal or metal composite roofs, we find the following orders of magnitude:

Carbon footprint
Value in kilos of CO2 equivalent to m2 of covering

Our envelopes

Tensile roofs

Tensile roofs add character to a building thanks to the fluidity and airiness of the forms created. They have become a hallmark of contemporary architecture. The geometry of a timber or steel frame used in conjunction with a membrane and combined with elegantly ancillary detailing elements, enable a vast array of architectural expressions to be obtained.

Tensile façades

Tensile façades can be used to enhance your building’s architectural expression by combining adaptations of form, texture, translucency, colour, and printed graphics.

ETFE films

Transparent or coloured, ETFE films are primarily used to deliver striking transparent weatherproof roof coverings and façades that allow daylight to flood modern buildings with minimal use of material resources.
