For Architects

Architects appreciate the uniqueness when it comes to a tensile structure for its ability to offer unusual and iconic shapes and forms.

This page is designed to help provide information to Architects about tensile membrane structures and how to think about using membrane on your next building project. Here you can access information on the process of designing a tensile structure, examples of typical design details and various fabric shapes/forms, descriptions of various membranes used when constructing a tensile membrane structure, information on the functional benefits of energy use and lighting for fabric structures, the latest tensile membrane structures 13000 specification and lastly, and links to our iconic project gallery.

No other manufacturer or contractor has built more tensioned fabric structures, roofs and skylights than Birdair. Cooperation with a design/build full service specialty contracting firm like Birdair with an in-house design and fabrication facility, construction department and a 24/7 customer service and warranty department is very important when considering membrane on your next project.
