Single Pitch Roof
Other names for a Single Pitch Roof include skillion, mono-pitched, or lean-to and as you can see, a single pitch roof is characterised by its single slope.
Many clients consider a Single Pitch Roof mainly due to the fact they can be cost-effective options because of their simplicity. If you already have a tensile fabric structure that needs extending, a Single Pitch Roof design could be perfect.
Double Pitch Roof
A Double Pitched off or Gabel Roof is the most common type of roof shape and it is characterised by two slopes that meet at the top.
The sides of the slopes are open on this tensile fabric structure. A gable roof is so typical that it doesn’t matter if it’s installed in a cold or warm climate. It makes a good choice because it is highly affordable, has good drainage, prevent snow build-up and provides a good degree of design flexibility.
Polygonal Roof shapes are sometimes referred to fifty pence roofs and are similar in concept to hip roofs used on residential buildings.
They are a particularly good choice for wide clearance requirements as they are the strongest shape and require less cross bracing than double pitch roofs.
Polygonal roofs are also used when there is a requirement for a wide clearance needed at height.
Arc or Round Roof
Arc or Round Roof shapes have been used for centuries, however they are very modern and offer a pleasing aesthetic.
A curved roof design is typically used in situations where there is high exposure to wind. Consequently, in situations that receive more snow and rain your shelter can have more of an arch to allow water to run-off this type of tensile fabric structure more rapidly.
A curved roof cost will depend on the complexity of the design, but can be customised easily to house operational auxiliary options in a compact structure.
