Advantages Of Tensile Membrane Structures
1. Flexible Design Aesthetics
Virtually unlimited designs of distinctive elegant forms can be realized because of the unique flexible characteristics of architectural membrane. Also, fewer support columns create more functional, aesthetically pleasing spaces.
2. Outstanding Translucency
In daylight, the membrane's translucency offers soft diffused naturally lit spaces reducing interior lighting costs. At night, the artificial lighting creates an ambient exterior luminescence.
3. Shortened Construction Schedules
Incorporating the most modern construction techniques, large fabricated membrane panels can be installed quickly to shorten installation schedules. Likewise, fabric removal can be accomplished easily.
4. Cost Benefits
Lightweight structures can be a more cost effective solution than traditional building materials offering building owners reduced costs. Materials, such as photo-catalytic membranes, can help prevent temperature rise as well as reduce maintenance costs due to their self-cleaning properties.
5. Long Span Structures
Lightweight membrane is a cost-effective solution that requires less structural steel to support the roof, enabling long spans of column-free space.
6. Earthquake Resistant
Lightweight tensile membrane structures bear less building load than traditional roofing materials and the membrane's elasticity offers further earthquake resistance.
