The Bateau Bay Bowling Club Canopy is an example of our classic Hawksbill design TensoSport-Max canopy. The inclined arches of the steel structure create a vaulted canopy, creating an pleasing architectural detail, while still providing a light, open-air feel beneath the structure.
MakMax worked with the club’s architect EJE Architecture to develop the concept for the Bateau Bay Bowling Club Canopy.
The project was to cover one of the three existing bowling greens located at the club. The green closest to the clubhouse chosen to become the undercover facility.
The 1800 square metre canopy is clad in Mehler Valmex FR900N PVC.
An architectural PVC tensile membrane canopy is an excellent option for a bowls club looking for a full-cover bowling green canopy. The PVC membrane’s UV-resistant properties mean that it can also provide shade and protection from the sun during hot weather. Furthermore, the lightweight and flexible nature of the PVC membrane it can be shaped and tensioned in a variety of ways, allowing for unique and eye-catching designs, such as the Hawksbill inclined-arch style structure installed at Bateau Bay Bowling Club.
The durability and longevity of PVC membrane means that the Bateau Bay Bowling Club canopy can withstand extreme weather conditions and last for many years without requiring significant maintenance or replacement.
The canopy contains a number a passive air-vents located at the highest points of the vaulted roof sections. Designed to vent any trapped heat during the summer months, the vents also reduce the chance of moisture build-up on the underside of the PVC membrane during periods of high humidity.
