Design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of tensile fabric structures is our core business
If you want high quality design, engineering and installation of tensile fabric structures you need to speak to Lightweight Structures. Established in 2001, we have a distinct advantage over other engineering companies: designing, engineering, manufacturing and installing custom fabric tensile structures is our company’s core business. That means we have the ingenuity and flexibility to move and think fast and deliver the ultimate outcome for your money.
Manufacturing capacity adds another string to our bow
We have recently added manufacturing capacity to our process by teaming with Maryborough-based company Stanfast, with whom we have enjoyed a great relationship over the years.
This extra breadth of knowledge and process control is important because it means our company’s expertise stays with your project from start to finish. Our partnership means everything can be done for you under one roof, from Design and Engineering, to Manufacture and Installation. This wide base of responsibility helps avoid delays, communication breakdowns and buck-passing.
Lightweight Structures and Stanfast can create shade covers out of nearly every type of PVC and shade cloth material. The selection of material is critical in ensuring that a structure can withstand the stresses placed on it by supporting tension elements, and the environment. We understand the benefits, costs, and practical limits of each.
Our manufacturing professionalism ensures that the most suitable materials and supporting components are used for your project.
Our facility uses industry-leading plotting and cutting technologies. This means your product is made to an exceptional standard, as efficiently as possible; on time; and exactly to specifications.
Our strengths in welding and sewing have been evident ever since Stanfast (formerly Fairweather Canvas Company) was founded in 1965. Originally a company that manufactured the Stanfast Annexe, our attention to detail has remained ever since, and is evident in all of the shade covers we manufacture.
Our company provides shade fabricators, architects and builders with the technical expertise to offer their customers high quality cost effective tensile membrane solutions.
Our design team understands the flexible dynamics of the lightweight structural product. We have a hands-on understanding of both fabric and steel fabrication and project installation. This knowledge of the individual components within a built tensile project is reflected in the design and engineering documentation of every completed structure.
To develop the best project outcomes, our organisation combines industry experience with leading edge technologies: including finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, parametric CAD and tensile membrane patterning.
Our organisation understands that time is important. In supporting our valued clients, we aim for swift turn around on services. Lightweight Structures is committed to assisting clients with developing cost effective projects, built on time and on budget. We guarantee that our design and engineering systems will assist your business in achieving the most creative and cost effective project outcomes.
