Working with Paragon Creative, Tensilefabric completed the manufacture and installation of a medieval shop and entrance canopy for a new exhibition at Warwick Castle. The hand decorated fabric, manufactured in sections for easy fitting, forms an outer skin to the inner timber frame structure and was built over a three week period for the beginning of the Easter holidays.

The UV resistant acrylic canvas was slid onto the timber frame using an aluminum extrusion system. This enabled the canopy to be put up in sections giving extra adjustability.

The material, suitably fire rated for external purposes, was created and designed in a medieval style at our workshops then sent to our client, Paragon Creative, to be painted prior to installation.
