Air Stretch Fashion Week

Air Stretch: High Point novelty

For the September Fashion Week in Paris, in the Jardin des Tuileries, High Point produced and installed a tensile structure "Air Stretch" of more than 1000m² without any mast or post under the canvas. Stretch canvas, suspended from the outside, has created a covered space with a free span still unprecedented for this type of structure.

The canvas was installed in a day in the rules of art, and disassembled in a few hours, to protect the show "open air" rain and wind.
High-performance alternative and 100% waterproof to stretch fabrics in lycra, High Point innovates once again and offers ultra-resistant, flexible and large-sized solutions for open air event coverage.

The cover of the parade, light, airy and translucent, was made to measure and dimensioned to safely withstand the climatic conditions imposed by the specifications and load assumptions defined by the customer.

The Air Stretch structure was calculated by finite elements to determine the forces applying in all points. This made it possible to dimension all the constituent parts of the structure as accurately as possible: masts, towers, shrouds, connection pieces, etc. All assemblies, welds and connection pieces were tested in our laboratory. The calculation of weights and anchor points has also been optimized.
