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

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