Pool Improvements with Tension Structures

By February 24, 2020 March 2nd, 2020 No Comments

What do you think about when you hear tension structures (also known as tensile membrane structures)? Typically, you envision public parks, amphitheaters, and other architectural works. The same cost-effectiveness, minimal maintenance, and flexibility make them perfect for pool improvements. Tension structures have the potential to take your pool experience to the next level.

Here are two ways tension structures can enhance the area around your swimming pool:

Conversation-Worthy Design Elements

The first benefit of adding a tension structure near your pool is the noteworthy design. Tension structures do a great job of catching the eye, and will immediately draw the attention of anyone coming over for a swim. They provide a sense of upscale living and luxury. They are an elegant and unique solution, and they increase land value.

With a range of membrane choices, shapes, and sizes, owners can choose a design that meets their aesthetic. From a private home perspective, it’ll be the talk of everyone in your friend group – a feature that you’ll be proud to have at your home. From a commercial point of view, it lets guests feel like they’re at a top-quality hotel and resort, providing a beautiful backdrop for photos and overall adding a unique beauty to the deck.

Create Much-Needed Shade

Another noteworthy benefit of adding a tension structure to your pool deck is the shade that comes with it. Have you ever walked barefoot on hot wood or concrete before? On a mid-summer day, the heat can be unbearable. For hotel guests and private citizens alike, tension structures have the ability to provide some much-needed relief from the heat. Their lightweight, unobtrusive construction means that you’ll be able to cover large swathes of the pool deck without having to worry about bulky designs blocking off walking paths.

Tension structures add shelter to your pool deck without obstructing the foot traffic around them. For example, they shield important areas of your pool without cutting corners on form and function. In addition, they can help owners cut back on instances of sunburn and other exposure-related issues. Visually appealing with excellent durability, tension structures create an environmentally friendly way for architects and owners to enhance their property.
