Cost-Effective Tension Structures Are Difference Makers

By March 30, 2020 No Comments

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a property owner who’s looking to install a commercial roof structure in the near future. But you haven’t pulled the trigger yet.  Is the reason a cost-related issue? You’ve come to the right place. What if we told you there was a way to get all of the benefits you’ve been looking for in a shade structure?  You could see the benefits of an affordable price, and with an added savings to your operational costs moving forward. We’ve got four words for you: Cost-Effective Tension structures. Growing in popularity, these extremely economical innovations can get the job done for your business at a fraction of the cost.

Here are two ways cost-effective tension structures can impact your bottom line:

Lower Startup Costs

It’s no secret that traditional shade structures often involve heavy materials and complicated, time-consuming construction processes. They can cost a pretty penny. Luckily, times are changing. An increasing number of properties are opting to build tension roof structures instead. With a tension roof structure, you’re eliminating much of the materials and labor required by competing concepts.

On top of that, you’re opening your business up to a world of design possibilities that other construction styles simply aren’t capable of emulating. The truth is, tension roof structures are very affordable and come with a whole range of materials and applications to suit your needs. Traditional alternatives fall short, trying to compete at the price points that tension structures can deliver, leaving you to front a greater bill for a build that takes longer and has less utility overall.

Lower Operational Costs

One of the biggest operational pain points in building management is the use of air conditioning. It’s a must during hot summer days, but also a variable cost that can add up quite quickly. This is another area where tension roof structures can really help your bottom line. They’ve got the unique ability to let natural light in while keeping the heat out. This leaves your patrons cool and comfortable, ready to focus on your business rather than the sweat on their brow.

This phenomenon is also known as passive cooling. Since the sun’s UV rays are bounced away from your space, you’re effectively eliminating solar heat gain. This means you have a lower average temperature overall, and your air conditioning units don’t need to work nearly as hard to cool an area down further. In other words, more dollars in your pocket and a longer lifespan for your HVAC equipment.
