Quality standards

Focusing on the quality of each constructive element is vital for the overall quality and appearance of a fabric structure. That is why 3dtex GmbH pays particular attention to the correct selection and construction of the connecting elements, whatever the project. Edge cables, tension links and membrane plates usually are made from stainless steel. All used fabrics are made by European quality producers only.

All of the details are planned down to the millimetre in a virtual 3D model and tested before they are manufactured, mostly in Germany. Ongoing quality tests are also carried out at our suppliers to guarantee the highest quality.
