tensARC is fundamentally a design company and everything we design, engineer and make is tailored to the exact requirements of each customer (large or small). This is a premium brand with a premium solution – with the fabric and all components having been developed in-house to best meet the technical requirements of each application. We work very closely with each customer to deliver a service that matches their need and exceeds their expectations. InShade is our new flagship product, it is innovative and is already creating a lot of interest in the industry. In order to meet increased demand we have invested in a dedicated production line using state of the art equipment including a laser cutting table with a moving conveyor table bed and direct off the roll feed that can quickly and accurately cut individual fabric patterns directly from our computer design files. All of our sewing machines are new, the best available and in some cases have been customised specifically for each task to ensure the best possible quality and consistency.
