Sports Court Canopy

Sports Court Canopies

Allowing natural light through the translucent membrane, yet keeping players cool and comfortable in hot conditions, and dry during inclement weather, architectural fabric structures are perfect for full-coverage sports court canopies. The MakMax Sports Court Canopy is a lightweight structure, making it ideal for large-span coverage.

MakMax has created canopies for;

Grandstands & Grounds

World-class stadium roofing is not the only sporting facilities that can benefit from tensile membrane architecture. MakMax Australia has extensive project experience with sporting facilities of all types. Keep your players, spectators and club patrons comfortable with a range of shade and weather solutions.


Schools & Sports Clubs

MakMax Australia has worked with a number of small sporting clubs and associations to provide shade and shelter for athletes and spectators.

Our small spectator stand covers are strong, lightweight and reasonably economical when compared to traditional buildings.

MakMax Velarium: Variable Shade System

NEW PRODUCT: The MakMax Velarium is a variable shade system.

The MakMax Velarium variable shade system is created using opposing sets of PVC mesh panels supported by a cable span steel structure. At the push of a button, the shade panels close from the outside to the centre. Able to be closed all at once, or in various sequences, the amount of shade and shaded areas can be controlled.

The MakMax Velarium variable shade system is an adaptable system that would suit any application requiring large span column-free variable shade. The Velarium variable shade system is also suited to grass sporting facilities where a full canopy would not allow enough sunlight to filter to the playing surface.

Perfectly suited for swimming pools, where some sunlight is still welcome, The MakMax Velarium variable shade system was first installed at St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School in Brisbane.
