End walls tension systems:
Partial end walls are fully tensioned with a curved pipe in a pocket at the top of the fabric. The fabric is ratcheted up, once the fabric secured at the bottom. A rope edge in the fabric that is fed into aluminium sail track tek screwed to the frame achieves this.
Aluminium battens are tek screwed to the posts on the outside once the fabric is under tension. On the large structures there are a series of internal pockets with piped secure to the internal frames to keep the fabric under full tension against the frame in any wind conditions.
Partial End Walls:
Partial end walls have a beam attached to the top of the containers, or to a level stipulated by the client. With container mounted structures they can be attached to a container placed across the rear of the structure or they can be braced back to the roof frames and be self supporting.
Partial end walls can also be configured for fabric to the ground hangar type structures. In climates with extreme variations in temperature between summer and winter, clients have the option to place containers to block of the end. This keeps the cold winter winds out and full airflow in summer.
Full end walls:
Full end walls go all the way to the ground. On the container mounted structures there are 50 x 75 SHS steel welded to the vertical edge of the container. The fabric has a rope edge with an aluminium “rope track” being used to tension horizontally and secure the sides of the fabric to the containers.
The fabric on the bottom has a pocket for a pipe to hold it down, plus the curve pipes in the top pocket that are ratcheted upwards to achieve vertical tension. Aluminium battens are fixed to the outside of the posts, stopping the fabric billowing outwards.
Full end walls with doorways:
Taurus Fabric Build will supply full end walls with a door size allowance to accommodate any of the door styles you choose.
The curved apex will limit the height according to the width. Over 100mm of clearance is required to allow for the vertical and horizontal tensioning of the single piece of fabric and the fixing of the fabric against the door frame.
Blow Out Vents:
These assist in the release pressure from inside the structures. Normally they are triangular with a rope reinforced edge on the bottom to stabilise them. The number or size can be varied to suit the customer’s requirements.
