Tensile Structures

Offering a visually striking aesthetic element as well as open air cover, these striking tensile structures also known as fabric tension structures provide both protection and an artistic setting for your building, complex, or campus. What exactly is a tensile structure, you may ask? It is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending.

Whether installed in an entryway, patio, or atrium, these beautiful fabric creations add symmetry and character to your property. Lawrence’s tension structures can be found everywhere from playgrounds, zoos, amphitheaters, colleges campuses, and restaurant patios. If you are looking for a design that is admired both for its beauty and for its functionality, tensile structures are the best option.
