Huge tents for well-known companies

Buitink Technology produced a mega size stretch tent (free form tent) for a show of Lacoste in Paris. It's a huge tent with a size of 55x22 meter! The total surface of the flex canvas is about 1,100 sqm.

The free form tent with sloping shapes is manufactured from white strech canvas (Buitink flex fabric). It can be perfectly illuminated.


Hanging flex tent

To create an open space in the tent (no obstacles) for the catwalk, a free hanging construction is applied. The stretch canvas is fixed at the outside while the roof is free hanging, tensed with so called "high points".

In this way a beautifull 3D shaped and completely translucent covered space is created. No inside construction obstacles are present.
