Pneumatic structures are a special area in the field of textile architecture. Specific and ingenious, these objects are in some of their applications simply irreplaceable. The first examples of such structures have appeared in aeronautics, in a dirigible or flying balloons. Although these objects are forgotten, they found their new place in the form of buildings, with full expansion during last decades of the 20th century. The basic principle of pneumatic halls and buildings like this, is the ceiling formed of the membrane and it is supported by certain overpressure in the interior of the building. Although they were challenged pneumatic structure objects are still unbeatable in terms of speed of assembly and disassembly as well as the structure costs.
Pneumatic structures are most often used for covering outdoor tennis courts and other sports facilities, especially the pool.
