Premium Shade Structures For Schools & Universities

MakMax Australia has an extensive portfolio of creating shade solutions for education institutions.

Education Facilities must meet community requirements for both curricular and extra-curricular activities. A tensile membrane cover can create a space specific to a sport or as a multi-functional weatherproof area for all faculties within the school.

Whether your requirement is partial shade on a sports court, a fully weatherproof learning area, or an architectural statement to support a school’s signature sporting program, MakMax Australia can design to suit your specific area and budget.

MakMax Australia can design structures from a basic shade cover to a stunning architectural feature cover designed to protect your signature sports team from weather conditions.

Our long history creating award-winning sports structures clearly demonstrate our capability to provide structures for all needs MakMax can design to suit your requirements.
