Tensile Fabric Canopies
Fordingbridge's range of high-quality tensile structures are designed with unusual dimensions which are perfect for outdoor classrooms, student social areas, play areas, walkways, and alfresco dining areas, whilst maintaining architectural flair and affordability, whether pre-designed or bespoke.
All canopies in this range have high quality roof coverings that are 100% waterproof, highly durable, and offer high UV protection. Their in-house team can design bespoke solutions for your tensile fabric structures. These are available in single, double, and triple variants and are based around three shapes: Conic tensile fabric canopy, Barrel Vault tensile fabric canopy, and Hypar tensile fabric canopies, all which require no drainage, prompt installation and are available in hundreds of colours.
Fordingbridge can take the reins to handle the complete installation, including planning where necessary, structural engineering and installation, making your project stress-free from initial conversation through to handover on site.
The canopies not only provide valuable shade, but also brighten up being outside on rainy days, which may continue thanks to the canopies. With quick lead-in time from order to installation, thanks to the clever application of the canopy, visitors can enjoy the views come rain or shine in a matter of days.
Fordingbridge are a specialist design and build contractor offering inspiring canopy, walkway and building solutions to all sectors, with over 50 years of experience and successful collaborations across a range of sectors, including: direct with clients, building contractors, architects, and local authorities. They believe that working with all levels of a project team is the key to getting the best project solution by offering a unique integrated approach that spans all aspects of a project, from concept to completed build.
Their range of tensile fabric canopies add architectural impact to projects working with constrained budgets. Fordingbridge's canopies are constructed using their proven and long-lasting 750g/m² fire retardant PVC fabric and CE marked steel, which are available in a range of pre-designed sizes. To offer peace of mind, their tensile fabric is guaranteed for 10 years and the structure for 25. They also offer a full design service for more bespoke solutions.
The steel structure is CE marked which attests the verification by Fordingbridge that these products meet EU safety, health or environmental requirements. Thanks to their engineering background, you are not restricted to installing these at ground level, allowing for prompt installation and minimal disruption.
Their structures provide great rain protection and shading from the sun, coupled with opportunities for illuminating beautifully at night which offers a pleasant aesthetic and can be suitable for smaller budgets, requiring only one foundation point per canopy. These designs are available in hundreds of colours and various sizes up to 6m x 6m to allow for visual continuity. Their creative designs, and their expertise in installation, results in both visually and practically dynamic results.
