It shouldn’t be.
Fabric Structures is not complicated. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
I like to use the analogy of a tailored suit when it come to thinking about incorporating a fabric structure in your life.
In most cases, you want or need something more than what’s out there. You meet with someone with a good (better yet) great reputation and you tell them what you want. You pick out your style (awning, tent, mast. frame or pointed supported) and you pick the material you want to use (PTFE, PVC, HDPE or something new) and you let the expert take over.
They design it, pattern it (yes, fabric structures have patterns) and fabricate it.
But just before the final fitting, they re-measure you or in the case of a fabric structure you get an on-site survey done in order to make sure when you try it on for the first time or install it, it fits like a glove (or a tailored suit).
When was the last time you had something tailored?
