About Us

We are problem solvers, innovators and creators of tensile structures. We strive for architectural solutions while others see obstacles. 

Our mission is to make tensile membrane structures more widely accessible to the private and commercial markets – from stretch tents to fully engineered membrane structures.
Contact Tentrix to review lightweight membrane structure solutions for your particular challenge.

We are based in Colorado Springs, nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak. Here in Colorado, we are strong believers in being outdoors. Whether that is for hiking, biking or planning our next big event! Any Colorado local has learned the importance of always being prepared for the outdoors – especially when it comes to the frequently changing weather.

We were inspired by the iconic tensile structure of Denver International Airport. We wanted to incorporate the strength, resilience and elegance of the airport’s sleek architecture in a smaller scale. While living abroad in South Africa, we encountered stretch tents sustaining high wind conditions through some very blustery winter storms. After seeing the success of these structures, we were inspired to further develop a technology specifically designed to withstand Colorado’s mountain high country.

The leap from stretch tent to tensile structure (think DIA again) is a step from a knit fabric with a little stretch, to a high strength weave that is patterned and fabricated to balance tension forces imposed by edge anchors.

Although we are based in Colorado, for the right project, we can engineer, manufacture, deliver and install anywhere in the country.. and beyond! Let us know if you have any questions/comments about our product. We would love to hear from you.
