Visitors of the Brunssum Open Air Theater in the south of the Netherlands enjoy the brand new Tensile roof of the theater, which APR Projects installed on behalf of Poly-Ned. Local architect Ivo Rosbeek designed the structure, where integration with the environment was essential.
The open-air theater is located in the middle of a park. Therefore, the architect decided to extend the natural surroundings under the tensile roofing using print. Poly-Ned approached Printable Technical Textiles to print the leaf pattern on the specially prepared technical textiles used for this project. We protected these with our unique SolidskinTec polyurethane fusion, so the prints are guaranteed to remain colorfast and dirt-resistant for 10 years. If you look closely, you will also discover various quotes from creative minds from the Dutch theater history among the printed leaves, an excellent addition to the Tensile roofing that completes the picture.
Printable Technical Textiles offers a second-to-none durable printing solution on technical textiles used for tensile roofing. Architects and builders are becoming increasingly creative with customized designs for stunning tensile structures and fabric roofs. Beautiful and unique, these impressive solutions are surprisingly easy to create. Our 10 year warranty on appearance, plus the complete creative freedom in design, opens doors for a new generation of tensile structures.
