Taut sails

  • Ease of installation and removal of the sail.
  • Coverage of large surfaces with very little weight.
  • Possibility of covering large dimensions.
  • Possibilities for mounting on various structures, thanks to the multitude of anchor types available.
  • Variety of fabrics.
    Ideal for covering large surfaces and widely used for the realization of ephemeral architecture.
  • Long durability and the need for little maintenance.
  • All support points are metallic, either galvanized or stainless.
  • Its Lightness: these systems make up roofs with a minimum relationship between built mass and spatial volume. That is, in a minimum thickness the structure and textile membrane are concentrated.
  • Luminosity: The fact that it is translucent provides great aesthetic and economic advantages:
    – The natural light of the sun is used.
    – Its surrounding light as an adjustable filter.
    – The luminous appearance at night.
    Energy capture: some membranes allow the passage of solar radiation that crosses its surface, penetrating inside where the heat is absorbed and stored.
    Ventilation: the proper design and arrangement of the membranes allow for greater ventilation that facilitates the movement of air masses.
  • Membrane: It is the cover of the system, it is composed of a Membrane: a textile base made of high tenacity polyester covered with PVC, which gives it resistance to structural efforts and the necessary flexibility to adapt to any shape.
  • Cables: They fulfill two functions: some reinforce their edges and o Cables: others materialize the union between membrane and structure.
    Structure: Tensioned roofs require fixed anchors in space, these are often materialized through masts, poles that support them. These structures are usually designed in steel, however aluminum, laminated wood and reinforced concrete are possible alternative materials to use.
  • Foundation: The Tensile Structures require to be anchored to the ground by means of reinforced concrete foundations or anchors to resist the loads.
