Sprung Fabric Buildings: Engineered to Outperform

Sprung is the inventor of the stressed membrane structure, an engineered, relocatable, clear-span building solution. Sprung’s tension fabric building structures allow for rapid construction, total design flexibility, and fundamental cost-effectiveness of almost any type of building application. The reliability and durability of our performance architectural membrane fabric structures is demonstrated worldwide, in countless applications ranging from oil and gas buildings to military, event centers to arenas, and aircraft hangars to mining buildings. Sprung fabric buildings provide a rapidly buildable, customizable and easily relocatable building solution for any project.

Sound engineering is the most important factor to consider when choosing tension fabric buildings, and Sprung has an unmatched reputation. In over 100 countries, Sprung fabric structures are exceeding expectations for any buildings: fabric or otherwise.

NASA Quality Innovation

For over a century, Sprung has been synonymous with quality custom-made fabric membrane buildings that meet unique needs and challenges. We patented tensioned fabric structures, and after building the NASA Space Shuttle housing facility in the early 1980s, our reputation became known worldwide.

Unbeatable Fabric Building Performance

All Sprung fabric buildings are made from the highest quality materials, and individually tested using strict performance measures. Our tensioned fabric structures have proven durability in some of the most extreme conditions on earth, from the hottest desert to the windiest arctic tundra and coldest mountain highland.

  • Sprung fabric structures meet the strict Miami-Dade County Hurricane Compliance Code.

  • The only building left standing in Buras, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was a Sprung tensioned fabric structure.

Beautiful and Enjoyable Space

Beyond the technical advantages of a Sprung tensioned fabric structure, its beautiful interior space creates an abundance of light and roominess. Natural daylight, high roofs and unique windows create depth and spaciousness, and glazing walls add to the open and inviting characteristics of our fabric buildings.

Quality, Energy-Efficient Fabric Building Structures

A Sprung technical consultant is on-site throughout the assembly to monitor every Sprung project, ensuring quality is never compromised and the building is constructed to our rigorous high standards. Sprung tensioned fabric structures have an R-25 to R-30 energy efficiency rating, which outperforms other building solutions and results in less environmental impact and lower operational costs. There is almost no air leakage in a Sprung tension fabric building thanks to our unique design and performance insulation.

Sprung's Tension Fabric Building Advantage

Manufactured in ISO 9001:2008 certified, state-of-the-art factories, each Sprung tensioned fabric structure can be customized to your specifications and design requirements. Because Sprung fabric membrane buildings are modular in design, they can respond to immediate requirements. With over 2 million sq. ft. of inventory on hand, we can help businesses expand to new markets quickly. Learn more about the Sprung Advantage today.
