With up to 30% of all available playing time in the UK lost due to bad weather or poor light conditions, the benefits that all-weather covered and floodlit sports facilities can bring to our communities is well understood! The right investment in covered sports areas can provide inspirational shade and shelter for generations to come while the incremental revenue and operational savings realised upon completion provide a significant financial offset over time.
All Weather Sports Canopies from Streetspace are permanent structures offering an unrivalled cost efficiency both in terms of construction and operational maintenance. They are comprised of an uncomplicated, architecturally brilliant steel frame design with clear-span radius roof and either tensioned fabric membrane or steel panel cover system over. While weatherproof side panels can be added to the canopy elevations, the open ventilating structure with dry, UV protected and well-lit courts, having air flow and temperatures in accord with the external environment, offers a superior playing experience to enclosed alternatives.
By locating our structural columns on piled foundations just outside court perimeters Streetspace 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 these projects. With available playing space on court at a premium for many inner-city sports areas, our vertical column design delivers a compact and precise canopy footprint. The ability to engineer canopy dimensions in a range of sizes and heights to suit most sports and court areas provides the necessary flexibility to accommodate this.
Designed for covered space across a broad project spectrum, Streetspace All Weather Sports Canopies are well suited to public, unmanned facilities with an inherent resistance to damage having no vulnerable fabrics or components within reach of the ground. Advanced tensile membrane cover systems offer superb durability with a 20-year warranty and high performance coatings provide exceptional resistance to UV penetration and airborne grime.
Up to 35% light transmission is achievable within the specification of our tensile membrane fabrics achieving lower daytime lighting requirements and the potential to re-use existing floodlighting while still cutting out harmful UV rays. For even greater durability, our All Weather Sports Canopies can be specified with a composite colour profiled insulated steel panel roof system, available with a limited 40-year warranty in a very cost-effective package.
Streetspace structures are UK manufactured, enabling our project to benefit from short lead times and stable costs, not susceptible to variance in exchange rates. We 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 seek to make the covered sports vision a reality!
