Tensile Facades

PFEIFER Structures specializes in the design, engineering, and installation of innovative architectural mesh facades. Our lightweight façade systems provide architects and developers with a cost-effective method of transforming the appearance of a building. In some instances, our customers use lightweight façades to alter the appearance of otherwise uninspiring structures like parking garages.

In addition to the privacy offered by a tensile façade, mesh fabrics can also provide a solar shade to prevent the majority of sunlight from entering a building while still offering outward visibility. This helps reduce solar heat gain and can drastically reduce energy bills.

Tensile facades utilizing PVC can also be a creative way to add printable graphics to your building envelope. Whether for advertising, branding, or artwork, PVC mesh facades are an excellent way for designers to finish buildings with their unique vision.

Contact us to get more information about our lightweight facades, or to get a free consultation with the most experienced designers and engineers in the lightweight structure industry. Fill out the contact form on this page or call us toll-free at 1-877-887-4233.
