Frame Supported fabric structures are a great solution for permanent coverage needs all while creating unique shapes only fabrics can achieve. They can be manufactured for the specific needs of the customer. From full to semi enclosed spaces, Frame supported fabric structures come in all shapes and size. With the use of modern day fabrics like PTFE, ETFE and HDPE the expected life span is comparable to traditional used construction methods. Frame structures are designed to support the fabric and its external loads. The frames generally designed to be stable regardless of whether fabric is attached or not. While the frame is not dependent on the fabric for its stability fabric can contribute to that stability. Some of the oldest frame structures used by humans are the tipis of North America and the Yurts or Kibitz of North central Asia which still find common use today as living quarters. They have been discovered in the arctic made of mammoth bone and skins.
