Protect Your Fleet With MakMax HNPC

If your business requires vehicle protection hail net, the MakMax HNPC (Hail Net Protection Canopy) System can provide a robust and economical hail risk-reduction solution for customers within the automotive and logistics industries.

Originally developed for the agricultural market, MakMax engineers have adapted and improved the HNPC system to create large, simple designs which are specifically intended for use as vehicle hail protection structures.

Our cantilevered column design means no guy cables or back-stays are required, allowing our clients to maximise the coverage to their sites by placing perimeter columns immediately adjacent to site boundaries. The cable grid system allows for large spans and a relatively simple installation process, ensuring speedy installation and minimal site disruption.,

Redundancy Bays

In structures of significant length (such as large-span hail net canopies), failure can occur due to accumulated surface friction wind loads, particularly during severe weather events.

The MakMax Australia Hail Net Protection Canopy system incorporates additional wind friction-load analysis as part of the design and engineering phase. Points of potential failure are identified and addressed through the use of Redundancy Bays, where we add heavier truss-style columns to the structure at regular intervals, rather than just along the edges. The wind-load analysis conducted prior to installation helps to identified the most efficient placement of the redundancy bays.

Standard Wind-load analysis - no redundancy
