Maintenance and Cleaning

To keep your t canopy in tip top shape, cleaning and maintenance is vital. Therefore, if you would like your tensile structure to remain in the same quality as at installation, thereby extending its lifetime, Innovative Tensile recommends regular checks of your structure, examining for any cleaning or maintenance issues in accordance with the operations and maintenance manual that we will issue you with at installation completion.

Maintenance and cleaning frequency depends on a number of different factors, such as the canopy form, its location relative to dirt/debris sources (like trees for exterior canopies and air conditioning ducts for interior canopies) and the amount of other airborne dirt. As a general guideline we recommend that the canopy should be cleaned and maintenance checks conducted annually. Again, this frequency will be suggested in the Operations and Maintenance manual (O & M manual).
