2D & 3D Tensile Fabric forming a weather proof canopy

Alfresco365 specialise in smaller scale tensile fabric structures in the Southern Counties and London. Our tensile fabric structures are bespoke, typically installed for high end residential clients , hospitality sector and for schools.

We welcome all enquiries and enjoy a challenge. Our tensile fabric sails are designed and manufactured in the UK by highly respected specialist sail makers , SD sails , using the latest CAD software for 3D forming.

Our tensile structures are stretched between heavily anchored strong steel posts , between fixing points which are part of a new superstructure , and fixing points on an existing building or heavy object (Mature Tree / Yacht / Steelwork).

Flat 2D tensile sails need are set an angle of 14 degrees to allow rain water run off , hyperbolic 3D sails require the correct height differential between fixing points to ensure the 3D shape correctly forms to shed water & light snow.

Our tensile structures are bespoke to fit individual requirements, we utilise a wide variety materials to suit individual tastes and to satisfy engineering constraints. The fabric used for these structures is usually Serge Ferrari Pre-contraint PVC which is the world class fabric for architectural canopies.
