High Quality Canopy Materials

Our canopies are assembled using only the best materials. We have been installing canopy shelters for over a quarter of a century and very little has changed during this time:

  • The canopy fabric material used is manufactured by Serge Ferrari, the world leaders in colourful PVC woven fabrics.
  • Our ready made and bespoke canopies are PVDF top lacquered with the same substance used to coat fishing lines and elecrtical wiring because of its durability and strength.
  • Combining an extruded aluminium profile frame with the PVC canopy, our structures will typically perform for over 20 years.

Fabric Architecture Expertise

The patented Aquila system was engineered to our brief by Buro Happold, a world leader in the field who has worked on the Sydney Opera House, the Millennium Dome, and the Olympic Stadium.

  • Aquila operates in accordance with guidance issued by the Institute of Structural Engineers.
  • We are proud holders of MUTAmarq an industry standard accreditation mark administered by the Performance Textiles Association and are fully compliant with their guidelines for the safe use and operation of fabric architecture structures.

Tensile Structure Craftmanship

Since 2001 our canopies have been constructed by the award winning fabric engineering company Intension UK Ltd. who also supply tensile structures to clients such as Buckingham Palace, London 2012, British Airways and the King Abdullah University. We are very proud of our association with them and their many achievements:

  • Holders of international fabric design and fabrication accolades.
  • Investors in people and technology with the latest in fabric engineering cutting and welding equipment.
  • Considerable experience fabricating bespoke interior and exterior structures for sun shades, brise soleil, screening, decorative purposes, canopies and shelters from fabric and other materials such as PTFE and silicone glass.

Structural Installation

Our highly skilled team has been installing outdoor shelters for over 25 years. The process of site inspection, CAD drawings, canopy production and final installation can usually be performed in 4-6 weeks (much faster if we are installing an off-the-shelf canopy):

  • We can carry out structural groundwork or work with any other contractors you may wish to use if concrete foundations are neccessary.
  • We can supply detailed drawings, specifications, test results and certificates along with advice about planning approval.
  • We offer a warranty and maintenance service to ensure your canopy can be kept in the same condition for as long as 20 years.
