Tensile membrane structure the right choice for weather protection for new and used cars at three locations of the Schulz car dealers in Northern Germany.

While a single huge "umbrella" with a diameter of close to 24 meters offers sufficient protection in Sittensen, tensile membrane structure of two high-point structures were combined to a roofed surface of 160 sqm in Zeven and Rotenburg and the pylons were put at an angle away from each other.

Tensile membrane structure are a common system to use for car dealers, the weather especially the rain requires otherwise almost a daily wash for the cars.
