The low impact Membrane lightweight structures have on the environment is rarely mentioned.

The environment and the Membrane lightweight structures have a very good relationship.

Membrane lightweight structures or tensile structures are usually chosen as an option to cover spaces mainly for their aesthetics. However, these architectural membranes have more to contribute to a project than just a decorative accent.

The sustainable aspect of the tensile structures or lonaria is rarely mentioned.

Nor are the reasons why they are considered a more environmentally friendly option usually disclosed.

Here are three reasons why membrane lightweight structures are an environmentally friendly option:

1. Because of its design. Membrane lightweight structures, due to the way they are designed, require less materials to cover the same surface than what is required if materials such as tiles, sheets or concrete are used.

Hyparch’s core design philosophy for tensile structures is structural optimization that directly impacts material savings.

2. For their materials. If a membrane lightweight structures is uninstalled from a space or project, all the materials that make up its structure, from the membrane to the steel pipes, are reusable and some even recyclable.

3. For its lightness. The tensile structures are very light and prefabricated systems, which allows the impact on the environment to be much less both in terms of production and installation than in the case of other more conventional systems.

Although the main reason for hiring a membrane lightweight structures continues to be due to its appearance, little by little it is beginning to be considered for its sustainability.

At Hyparch, we seek to increasingly value other qualities of membrane lightweight structures in addition to their design.

We believe that textile architecture is the best option to cover spaces.
