Kendal Cantilever Tensile Fabric Structures

Kendal Cantilever Tensile Fabric Structures

The Kendal is an attractive tensile fabric canopy system which has a smooth modern look. It is constructed from a steel tubular framework and is covered with the finest waterproof tensile fabric making this a robust system which provides excellent cover from the weather.

The walkway is available in three standard widths of 3 metres, 4 metres and 5 metres and has a unlimited length.

Able Tensile Structures are permanent structures which are fully fitted and installed by Able Canopies trained teams of fitters.

Our tensile fabric has the unique ability to create varying moods, looks and feels to the area under the canopy just by using different colours, as when the sun falls onto the roof it will make the area underneath the canopy reflect the hue of the fabric – for example a red fabric roof will create very different feel to a calming light blue or a vibrant yellow roof.

Fabric Specification

Our exclusive tensile fabric is completely waterproof and is constructed from a woven base cloth which has high tenacity polyester threads. Throughout the manufacturing process, the fabric is coated under constant tension in both warp and weft directions giving it a high performance polymer surface layer. The exclusive technology used on the yarn, gives it true elongation resistance, so once coated, minimum movement in the finished product will occur which is a key factor in the durability of the fabric on your tensile structure.

The fabric is supplied in white as standard, however there are 39 additional colours to choose from which are available at an additional cost. It can adapt to any required shape and size including walkways and umbrellas which makes them particularly suited to the education and leisure sectors. The flexibility of the fabric allows us to present you with an exciting range of tensile structures in whatever commercial settings you require cover for.

The Kendal Cantilever Walkway requires only periodic cleaning. To clean the structure we recommend a solution of warm water and a non-abrasive cleaner. For more information please see the maintenance schedule which is found in your After Sales pack.
