Tensile Membrane Structure Gymnasium Classification and Advantages

November 07,2019

What is the Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium? What are the categories and characteristics? In recent years, with the deepening of the concept of architectural space and the continuous improvement of scientific means, “returning to nature” and “warming nature of bathing” have become the mainstream of modern architectural environmental science. Due to the light transmittance of the film, daylight can form slow light through the film, so that the film covers almost the same natural effect as the outdoor space, so the film structure can create a space form comparable to the natural environment.

Tensile Membrane structure is used in more and more buildings, in addition to Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium, as well as hall decoration, patio, four seasons hall, zoo and botanical garden, park square, observation deck, stage, sports stands, cultural entertainment, etc. Begin to use the film structure.

The Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium can be divided into two categories, namely the structure film structure gymnasium and the inflatable film structure gymnasium.

Tensile Membrane structure
The main components of the structural Tensile Membrane structure stadium are membrane materials, steel structures and steel cables, different membranes and steel cables, and their performance and price are different. Structure class modeling can be divided into the following two categories:
1. Skeleton Tensile Membrane structure Gymnasium: This type of Tensile Membrane structure is fixed on delicate steel, space trusses or other solid structures, called the skeleton Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium.
2. Tension Tensile Membrane structure Gymnasium: This type of Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium is constructed using only a simple support system and the tensile properties of the film material itself. Different from the traditional structure, the Tensile Membrane structure is made of flexible film and cable as the main force material. In order to carry out the engineering design of the Tensile Membrane structure stadium, it is necessary to understand its materials. Film materials used in construction engineering can be divided into two types: fabric film and non-woven film. Among them, the fabric film is commonly used with PVDF coated polyester fabric (hereinafter referred to as PVC film) and PTFE coated glass fiber fabric (hereinafter referred to as PTFE film); non-woven film is the most ETFE film. Representative and competitive. The choice of membranes is often highly dependent on the function of the building, fire protection requirements, design life and investment.

Inflatable Membrane structure
Inflatable Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium is known as the air-bearing Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium. It uses a special architectural membrane (PVDF membrane) as the building envelope, equipped with a set of intelligent electromechanical equipment to provide air pressure inside the completely enclosed membrane building, so that the entire building interior always maintains a positive pressure on the external environment. A building structure system that supports the main body of the building by the pressure difference between the inside and the outside, in addition to being applied to the gymnasium, it is also used in industrial plants, logistics warehouses, sports entertainment and military facilities, etc. It has large space, strong construction flexibility, and installation. Short cycle, low construction cost and maintenance cost, low energy consumption, environmental protection, superior durability and weather resistance, light weight, etc., the service life can reach more than 35 years.

In addition to these characteristics, the Tensile Membrane structure gymnasium has other advantages. The characteristics of a building structure as a Tensile Membrane structure sports facility mainly depend on its unique shape and the performance of the membrane itself. Because of this, the Tensile Membrane structure can create a design that cannot be achieved by traditional building systems.

The reason why the tensile structure of the Tensile Membrane structure stadium is small is that it relies on the prestressed form rather than the material to maintain the stability of the structure.


Transmittance is one of the most widely recognized properties of modern Tensile Membrane structures.


The tensioned Tensile Membrane structure is not rigid and will deform under the action of wind load or snow load.

Sculptural sense

The unique curved shape of the tensioned Tensile Membrane structure gives it a strong sculptural feel.


The lightweight tensioned Tensile Membrane structure designed in accordance with existing national codes and guidelines is sufficiently safe.
