Aluminum Substructure

Sprung utilizes an extruded military-grade aluminum substructure which provides superior performance, durability, and longevity. The Sprung aluminum substructure has an indefinite life expectancy and comes with a 50-year pro-rata guarantee. Our one-piece extruded aluminum I-beam with membrane retainer is engineered to endure extreme weather and environmental conditions.

Specific Advantages of Aluminum Over Steel

  • Rust proof. Essential when integrated with an architectural membrane exterior.
  • Lightweight. Ideal for shipping to remote locations and easier to erect.
  • Versatile. Aluminum can be extruded into virtually any shape. Connections are bolted, not welded.
  • Long-lasting. With an almost indefinite life expectancy, aluminum actually gets stronger with age.
  • Environmentally Friendly. Aluminum is 100% recyclable, with no generational loss of quality.
  • Extruded Membrane Retainer. Our one piece extruded aluminum I-beam, complete with membrane retainer, eliminates the need for a separate bolt on membrane retainer system, as typically found on fabric buildings which use a steel substructure.
  • Aluminum Is Infinitely Recyclable. There is nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced still in use today.
