Since stretch fabric technology is fairly new to the design and build industry, interior designers and architects who work with it are ahead of the curve. It also goes without saying that once stretch fabrics are installed, the results are breathtaking, which is why they are rapidly taking over the North American markets.
Stretch fabrics are gaining popularity among professionals due to their tremendous benefit. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, stretch

Why Professionals Choose to Work with Stretch Fabric Technology
Structures with High Ceilings
One of the biggest issues for many commercial projects is high ceilings. Although high ceilings are considered an attractive feature, they are often problematic to work with. They are difficult to maintain and often have exposed beams and utility lines, making them seem unfinished and unappealing. There are certain options to consider such as installing ceiling tiles or drywall as a cover for the pipes in the ceiling, but these aren’t sustainable solutions. And this is when stretch fabric technology makes a wonderful option.
Stretch fabrics are not just aesthetically attractive, they are also highly practical. Instead of opting for tiles or drywall, professionals use stretch fabrics to cover up any imperfections in high ceilings as well as exposed utility lines while giving the space a wow factor.
Apartment buildings usually come in modular designs. Every unit has the same blueprint in terms of electrical, plumbing, lighting, etc. Although this approach makes the construction process easier, it does often result in awkwardly-placed light fixtures, poor lighting, and several side lamps that take up space in the room.
Stretch fabrics, however, are compatible with different types of light fixtures which can be installed on top of the stretch fabric, allowing the homeowner to place lights in a more convenient layout. Electrical wiring can be easily extended and hidden under the stretch fabric to maintain a clean-looking ceiling that’s also visually appealing at the same time.
Theatres, auditoriums, conference rooms, and concert halls must have great sound quality. When sound waves reflect off of surfaces, it could distort the quality of the sound, and reduce its quality. Stretch fabrics can be installed on the ceilings and walls of such venues to improve their acoustics. They neutralize sound and distribute it evenly, making such areas sonically pleasing in addition to their aesthetic design.
Customizability and Durability
Designers, architects, and builders find great value in using stretch fabric technology because the product can be customized based on the space you work on. Moreover, stretch fabrics are long-lasting and require little maintenance in the long run, making them a go-to option for professionals.
The materials used in stretch fabrics and wall products are guaranteed to last in top condition for years. They are antimicrobial, resistant to mould, flame-retardant and will not wrap or shrink. These qualities make stretch fabrics a perfect solution in areas that might be subject to moisture and heat over time such as indoor pools, saunas, gyms, and recreational facilities.
