Outdoor Shelters

Our outdoor shelters are installed as permanent structures and in many places are still standing after more than 20 years. Our structures use completely weather proof materials guaranteeing long term outdoor shelter protection:

  • The outdoor shelter metal frame is constructed using non-corrosive aluminium alloy.
  • Our outdoor permanent shelters are wind-tested with speeds in excess of 60mph.
  • The tensile structure roof of our outdoor shelters can withstand 1 tonne of snow loading.

PVC Fabric Tensile Structures

All our canopies are manufactured from PVC fabric, the highest tensile and tear strength material for fabric structures and the most cost effective for appearance, longevity and maintenance:

  • Our PVC canopies provide a permanent year round waterproof shelter.
  • We produce the safest type of UV resistant sun shelter using PVC fabric coated with PVDF, the same material used to insulate electric wires because of its combination of flexibility, low weight, low thermal conductivity, high chemical corrosion resistance and heat resistance.
  • A choice of canopy fabric colours and graphics are available for colour fast roof canopies.
  • The speciality PVC material used in our tensile fabric structures offers the highest possible resistance to heat and smoke generation and is flame retardant to M2 NFP 92.503, DIN 4102 B1, BS 5438, SIS 650082.

Modular Shelters

Our shelter sizes range from 100 to 400 square feet and by connecting modular shelters together any size or shape of permanent shelter can be provided:

  • Our fully flexible modular shelter system can be installed at any location and shaped around the existing natural or built environment to create a seamlessly integrated sheltering space.
  • We offer a choice of completely or partially open sides, ensuring our modular outdoor shelters are compliant with anti-smoking legislation.
  • Our modular shelters can be completely enclosed with the addition of side walls, doorways and partition panels.

Fixed Canopies

As with any type of permanent structure planning approval is usually required for a fixed canopy installed for longer than 28 days. However, there are some exceptions based on the size, location and purpose of the shelter. We are happy to offer a free site visit and planning advice about the installation of our permanent shelters:

  • Our standard outdoor fixed canopy plan dimensions are 3030mm, 4550mm and 6070mm in any width/length combination.
  • At it’s lowest point our fixed canopy module measures 2060mm height at the corners.
  • At it’s highest point our fixed canopy module measures 4495mm height in the middle of the canopy.
