Sun Park Tennis Club
The Sun Park Tennis Club indoor facility was constructed using a pressurized air structure made from a reinforced architectural fabric. Air quality concerns lead the owner to choose a self-cleaning, high end architectural fabric manufactured by Seaman Corporation. This fabric has a heavy polyester base fabric coated with a UV stable coating, top finished with a Fluoropolymer film allowing for self-cleaning when it rains. The film is the key to both cleanability and longevity, while the rugged base fabric and coating provide the strength and mechanical properties necessary for building design.
Needing to expand its facilities, Northstar Church in Knoxville, Tennessee chose to build an architectural frame structure. Northstar selected Shelter Rite fabric by Seaman Corporation for its favorable construction value, low maintenance requirements, longevity and positive aesthetic appeal. The fluoropolymer top finish also provides maximum life, minimum maintenance and sets the industry standard for long-term color retention.
Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre
The summer home of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Verizon Amphitheatre, needed a high-performance, weather-resistance membrane with aesthetic appeal for this unique tension structure. Shelter Rite architectural fabric covers the steel frame and provides the weather-resistant features of the structure. The membrane is a heavy reinforced polyester fabric coated with a weather and sunlight-resistant compound. The compound itself has slight translucent features that allow the facility a wide range of options in lighting and overall facility appearance.
Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica
Shelter Rite provided the strength and flexibility needed for the construction of the Nautica Stage, while providing a high tolerance for the excessive winds and snow common to this locale. Additionally, a Bright White fluoropolymer finish was applied to the top of the architectural fabric, making it virtually self-cleaning and resistant to the deteriorating effects of UV rays. In the end, more than 74,000 square feet of fabric was used for this custom designed tension fabric structure.
