Sports Canopies

Flexible designs from small covered MUGAs to multiple sports courts.

Sportspace365 All-Weather Sports Canopies are permanent architectural structures designed to provide outstanding performance, aesthetic beauty and durability over the long term backed by a comprehensive warranty. Unlike fully enclosed structures, sports canopies retain all the benefits of playing outdoors with the added advantage of protection from rain and exposure to UV rays.

With up to 30% of all available playing and coaching time in the UK lost due to bad weather or poor light conditions, the benefits that covered and floodlit all-weather multi use games areas (MUGAs) and sports courts can bring to our communities are well understood! Developed over decades of sports canopy projects, our global partnership is dedicated to the provision of year-round, all-weather playing environments that encourage people of all ages into sporting activities for their fitness and wellbeing.

With available playing space at a premium for many inner-city sporting facilities, our structures have a vertical column design to deliver a compact canopy footprint and the ability to engineer dimensions to accommodate most sport types. By locating our structural columns on piled foundations just outside court perimeters, Sportspace365 All-Weather Sports Canopies are engineered for installation over existing playing areas with minimal disruption; avoiding the escalating construction and resurfacing costs often associated with covered court projects.

Streetspace design and build canopies for MUGAs and sports courts of all sizes with tensile membrane or solid roof coverings. These can incorporate lighting and fencing with specifications to comply with standards set by the sporting authorities for the relevant use class.

Why Specify Sportspace365 All Weather Sports Canopies?

Offering a superior playing experience to many enclosed alternatives, Sportspace365 All-Weather Sports Canopies are open ventilating structures with dry, UV-protected and well-lit courts, having air flow and temperatures in accord with the external environment. The optional mesh fabric sides keep out the wind and rain without allowing stale air and condensation to build up. With minimal supporting steelwork, the soft curve, one-piece membranes or the gently curved steel roof provide a modern yet unobtrusive look, increasing the chances of approval in the planning process.

Advanced Tensile Membrane Cover Systems
These versatile structures provide the ultimate in covered multi-use games areas; genuine ‘no glare’ ambience, one-piece PVC tensile membranes with no joints to trap dirt or moisture, excellent light transmission, exceptional resistance to UV penetration and superb durability covered by a class leading warranty.
Reduced Noise and Light Pollution
The manufactured qualities of fabric membranes make the covered space below a cool, pleasant environment without the damp and cold of hard covers. With fabrics providing a soft element within the canopy design, the sound of rain and voices are absorbed and reverberation is reduced.
Long Term, Low-Maintenance Structures
PVC tensile membranes stay cleaner for longer with new improved fabric coatings providing exceptional resistance to airborne grime and super smooth surfaces reducing the level of maintenance required to keep the structure looking its best.
Natural Light Transmission without Harmful UV
With up to 40% light transmission available our tensile membrane fabrics achieve lower daytime lighting requirements while still cutting out harmful UV rays. This brings with it the potential to re-use existing floodlighting.
Durability for Park Environments
Designed for covered space across a broad project spectrum, our Sportspace365 multi use games areas are well suited to public, unmanned facilities with an inherent resistance to damage having no vulnerable fabrics or components within reach of the ground.
UK Manufactured
Developed in Australasia and now manufactured in the UK, compliant with all relevant EN and LTA criteria, Streetspace canopy structures enable your project to benefit from short lead times and stable costs, not susceptible to variance in exchange rates.
Benefit from Technical Expertise
Streetspace work closely with specialist funding and bid-writing agencies to provide every possible assistance throughout your consultation, business case, planning, and regulatory processes as you work towards making your covered sports area vision a reality!
Single Source Procurement
Streetspace project capability enables associated works packages such as civil engineering, court fencing, flood lighting, sports surfacing and access requirements to be undertaken within the same project management remit.
