Tensoshade™ designs and manufactures environmentally-friendly shade structures and shade sails systems that combine modern architectural engineering with durable tensile strength materials; perfect for any application especially during the hot summer months to keep us safe (UV protected) and comfortable.
We manufacture our own shade structures and shade sails, and DO NOT carry cheap imitations.
Tensoshade™ offers complete service for every project from the ground up.
Our knowledge and preparation allow us to work with our customers, architects, designers, contractors, and builders from the the initial concept and design through the construction and completion of the structure.
We are committed to assisting clients with developing cost-effective projects, built on time and budget. Our modular structures provide durable, cost-effective shade and weather protection while our custom structures can provide a striking transformation to any area.
Our services include:
Design Consultation & Engineering
Custom Steel Fabrication
Premium Grade Textiles & Patterning
Design and Fabrication
In the design and fabrication of a tensile structure it is important to consider certain recommendations.
- A engineering design of the structure will determine the life expectancy and low cost of your project.
- During the fabrication of a premium grade textile and membrane, it is essential to have the necessary form-finding software knowledge and equipment in order to optimize a good performance and quality of the product.
Our company provides designers, architects, contractors, and builders with the membrane solutions. Our knowledge and equipment allows us to meet fast track schedules and provide the highest production quality.
Installation and Construction
As a design-build company, Tensoshade™ has the necessary expertise to fully construct and install any type of tensile structure in order to achieve the ultimate results.
Once our team has concluded with the design and fabrication process, our experienced crew coordinates and successfully installs each structure on schedule.
Because of its lightweight nature, fabric is easily transported and makes it one of the most sustainable and cost effective building materials.
Tensile structures are mainly conformed by a series of elements; the structure, the membrane, the hardware and rigging components.
To obtain a high quality project, it is essential to find a perfect balance between these elements and ensure our structures achieve the performance of each element in order for the loads to be transferred equally and effectively throughout the whole tensile structure.
Nowadays most of National and International Codes require to perform a software wind tunnel study to analyze the different wind pressures that will affect the structure. For medium to large scale projects, it is very important to detect the sensitive points of the structure by designing a stable and strong project to assure the performance of the membrane extending the longevity of the product.
DETAILS AND CONNECTIONS
Structural details are a main component to take into account during the design of a tensile cover. We recognize that every project is unique and every client is a valued partner.Our structural attention to detail creates and generate engineered aesthetically pleasing connections that have greater performance than typical ones.
