TEXO Systems is a revolutionary new “pre-stressed” fabric panel system. The patented panel system comprises an extruded aluminium frame & silicone elastomer that can be used on a wide variety of textiles to form flat pre-stressed, light-weight, fabric panels.
Fabric Structures has teamed up with Tensoforma, the developers of TEXO, to supply TEXO to the New Zealand & Australian markets. Tensoforma is an internationally recognized Italian fabric structure company, who have “tried & tested” TEXO throughout Europe and now provide their wealth of experience and knowledge to support TEXO “down-under”.
The versatility and modular nature of the TEXO panel system truly bring textiles into mainstream architecture and construction, with a wide range of exciting applications. Applications so far include:
- Cladding & facades.
- Retrofitting & re-imaging older buildings.
- Building sunscreens.
- Building signage, graphics & branding.
- Ceiling panels – Acoustic & or high translucent.
- Exhibitions – Building, stand, etc.
Historically, fabric architecture has required the design form to have double curvature (i.e. anticlastic shapes) to create a stable structure. TEXO now allows designers the ability to work with textiles in a flat form, and removes the need for complicated and heavy structural framing, tensioning and fixing systems.
