Why Install a Bowls Roof At Your Club?
- A custom designed bowling green cover by MakMax Australia offers protection from sun, wind and rain. It also blocks 100% of harmful UV rays, allowing you to maximise the use of your bowling green.
- Club competitions, as well as functions and events, can be held year-round, regardless of the weather.
- Translucent membrane roofs are particularly suitable for sports like bowls, as they provide an extremely even natural light with very little shadowing during the day.
- With a fully-integrated lighting system, night-time use of the bowling green adds a range of social opportunities, from barefoot bowls and social club competitions to private or community functions and events.
- Designed to cover synthetic greens, a canopy will minimise maintenance and maximise the longevity of the surface
- Unique and highly noticeable, a bespoke bowling green canopy will attract players, spectators and social visitors to your club and become a focal point for the local community

MakMax Bowling Green Canopy Design
Offering full bespoke design options for our Bowling green canopies, MakMax offers limitless possibilities in creating a unique bowling green canopy for your club. We start with a range of tried and tested canopy styles, designed and engineered by MakMax Australia’s in-house team of technical experts, and then we customise each and every detail for your club. Some of our most popular canopy styles include;
(Barrel Vault Design)
Parallel arches and perpendicular struts create a clean, simple and efficient roof covering with a natural barrel vaulted fabric shape.
(Vertical Arched Peak Design)
Contrasting peaked central arches with valley cables and ribbed arched struts around the perimeter, this canopy style feels incredibly lightweight and open.
(Leaning Arched Design)
A striking visual design employs leaning arches and valley cables to create the exciting sawtooth profile.
