Star Fabric Canopies

ORION Star Tensile Structure

ORION Star fabric canopies are a great option where a striking tensile form is required with minimal supporting steelwork. Either placed individually or in groups for informal covered space, the waterproof tensile membrane tensioned on arms supported by a central column adds wow factor to any outside space.

ORION Star canopies use a PVC based waterproof architectural fabric manufactured with a PVDF self-cleaning top lacquering layer. These advanced fabrics have a 25 year design life, covered by a manufacturer backed warranty of up to 15 years, depending on specification.

Selecting an ORION Star fabric canopy is an opportunity to create a stunning feature at the same time as a structure that provides a good balance of shade and shelter. With a wide range of both neutral and bold fabric colours available, the design can be configured to fit in with both contemporary and traditional architectural styles.
