Our Story

Colin Puttick founded ArcCan in 2007, with the inspiration of providing permanent shade and shelter for customers both locally and internationally.

Since then we have had the pleasure of working in many different sectors including commercial and military aircraft, schools, restaurants, holiday parks, hotels, retail, private homes, and many more.

Retaining our heritage as a family-owned business, we are a small but motivated company specialising in the design and build of tensile fabric structures.

We have an extensive product range ready to fit most applications, from architectural fabric structures and shade sails to awnings, retractable pergolas and polycarbonate shelters that provide sun shade and shelter from the most inclement weather conditions. We provide a turnkey service including design, structural engineering, manufacture, installation and aftercare.

With a growing global presence, we have designed, engineered and installed our structures worldwide. Delivering a bespoke, personalised service, we ensure that no solution is the same and so we are devoted to creating the right solution to meet its customer’s needs.

Creating not only reliable products but also aesthetically pleasing designs that optimise the use of geometric shapes through high-quality, fully engineered fabric structures; our solutions illuminate sophistication.
