High Quality Stylish Canopies Designed For Your Garden

Simple off-the-shelf shade sails have been around for quite a few years, providing a relatively cheap temporary solution where shade is needed over an outdoor seating area, patio or hot tub, for example. However, these lightweight sails are no match for the British weather, and sadly, they deteriorate very fast, often needing to be replaced each year, especially if they have been left up all winter.

ArcCan shade sails on the other hand, are manufactured from high-quality shade cloth, and support structures are fully engineered against all normal weather conditions to allow for maximum use during the Summer. However, as a precaution, we recommend taking them down during the winter, especially if snow is likely.

ArcCan tensile fabric structures are different as they have been engineered to withstand all possible weather conditions known to take place at the location they are needed. For this reason, they represent an excellent investment with a designed lifespan of over 15 years. Our range of shade structures also adds style to any garden, whether a conic fabric clad timber gazebo or a saddle-shaped tensile fabric awning tensioned between four or more columns. We have also installed lean-to's, which offers a practical permanent shade solution in place of a retractable awning and courtyard shade attached to an existing building.

All our tensile fabric structures are waterproof with high quality architectural lacquered PVC coated polyester membranes. Rigging and fittings are in marine grade stainless steel, so the longevity of our designs are assured.

We offer a complete service, including design, manufacture and installation, and aftercare, to ensure that your canopy gives you maximum life. We are happy to adapt our standard models to suit your requirements and provide 3D & 2D models during the design stage, with concept images showing structures in the proposed environment for a small charge.
