TEXO Systems is a revolutionary new "pre-stressed" fabric panel system. The patented panel system comprises an extruded aluminum frame & silicon elastomer that can be used on a wide variety of textiles to form flat pre-stressed, light-weight, fabric panels.

Fabric Structure Systems has teamed up with Tensoforma, the developers of TEXO, to supply TEXO to the New Zealand & Australian markets. Tensoforma is an internationally recognized Italian fabric structure company, who have “tried & tested” TEXO through out Europe and now provide their wealth of experience and knowledge to support TEXO “down-under”.

The versatility and modular nature of the TEXO panel system truly brings textiles into mainstream architecture and construction, with a wide range of exciting applications. Applications so far include:

  • Cladding & facades.
  • Retrofitting & re-imaging older buildings.
  • Building sunscreens.
  • Building signage, graphics & branding.
  • Internal partitioning.
  • Ceiling panels - Acoustic &/or high translucent.
  • Exhibitions - Building, stand, etc.

Historically, fabric architecture has required the design form to have double curvature (i.e. anticlastic shapes) to create a stable structure. TEXO now allows designers the ability to work with textiles in a flat form, and removes the need for complicated and heavy structural framing, tensioning and fixing systems.
