At Aura we have helped almost a thousand customers specify the tensile fabric structure that is right for their needs. We have used this vast experience to put together a list of questions you might want to consider if you are looking to purchase a fabric canopy. We hope that these are useful and help you to compare different offers from different suppliers should you need to.
We have also provided a downloadable version so that you can store your answers or notes.
