Performance Architectural Membrane

Tensioned fabric membrane for superior performance

The exterior architectural membrane has many advantages over other kinds of building materials. Sprung’s Tedlar-coated and Kynar-coated tension membranes provide a clean bright look that acts as an ideal background for graphic treatments. Besides extreme durability and fire resistance, energy efficiency and design flexibility are also among the many hallmarks of the Sprung architectural membrane.

Its unique interior structure and sophisticated tension system are comprised of individual 4.5-meter membrane panels vertically and horizontally tensioned with a 10-ton hydraulic jack and ram. Their high-tech patented tensioning system combines with Sprung’s superior quality membranes and extruded aluminum substructure to ensure a durable product that dramatically outperforms all others of its kind in the world.

Through many years of extensive research and development, Sprung is proud to offer three different types of membranes that can be customized to your building needs:
