Ensuring Durability:

PTFE Tensile Fabric Inspection at Joondalup Lake Side Shopping Centre

At Sky Skills, every effort is made to ensure the highest standards of durability and safety in architectural fabric. This commitment is exemplified in their meticulous fabric inspection procedures, especially concerning PTFE tensile fabric. The Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City boasts an extraordinary attraction known as the Great Space, distinguished by its captivating ensemble of seven interconnected “pyramids.” These elegant white tent-like structures span a considerable area, housing a grand central stage and a prominent display area. With a focus on the underside of the catwalk, the top side of the fabric, and various structural elements, Sky Skills leaves no stone unturned in maintaining the integrity of its fabric structures. This article delves into the comprehensive PTFE tensile fabric inspection processes conducted at Joondalup Lake Side Shopping Centre, highlighting their dedication to quality and longevity.

1. Rope Access Technique for Thorough Inspection:
To ensure a comprehensive inspection, Sky Skills employs rope access techniques to examine the top side of the fabric. This method allows inspectors to easily access hard-to-reach areas, enabling them to inspect the fabric from various angles and identify any potential issues or defects.

2. Top Coating Assessment:
Inspectors meticulously examine the top coating of the PTFE tensile fabric to ensure its integrity. They check for signs of wear, such as cracking, peeling, or discolouration, which could compromise the fabric’s performance and aesthetics. Any areas of concern are documented for further assessment or necessary repairs.

3. Tension Inspection:
Maintaining proper tension is crucial for PTFE tensile fabric structures. Inspectors carefully evaluate the tension levels to ensure they are within the recommended range. They use specialized equipment and techniques to measure and assess the fabric’s tension, making any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

4. Structural Integrity Evaluation:
Inspectors pay close attention to pre-existing patches on the fabric. They thoroughly examine these patches for any signs of deterioration, such as fraying edges or compromised adhesion. This evaluation ensures that the structural integrity of the fabric remains intact, preventing potential issues that could arise from compromised patches.

Sky Skill’s commitment to fabric inspection is evident in its thorough examination of PTFE tensile fabric structures. By employing rope access techniques, checking the top coating, assessing tension levels, and evaluating the structural integrity of pre-existing patches, they ensure the durability and safety of their fabric installations. Sky Skills continues to prioritize excellence, delivering exceptional architectural fabric applications that stand the test of time.
