When you don’t have the luxury of deep foundations or extensive ground space, our Coro structure is a smart solution that still gets the job done.
Sometimes you have to go the extra mile to get a solution that works. That’s what we’ve done with our brilliant Coro tensile fabric structure. If you want the technical term, it’s a ‘braced hypar’ but otherwise, it’s two separate triangle sails fixed to a concave boom that joins two low masts. The boom helps to minimise the type of large overturning moments you often get with big hypar free-form sails. And that means the loadings from the canopy are largely contained within the steel framework and not transferred to the foundations.
So, if you thought your site wouldn’t allow a sail structure, Coro has other ideas. Even in small spaces, it will give you a really fantastic event space, covered seating or courtyard canopy. It comes in three pre-engineered sizes, ranging from 8m x 8m, right up to a spacious 10m x 10m and in a great range of fabrics and colours. And if you want to combine it with lights, heaters or a water capture system that’s fine too. There is also now a Double Coro up to 20m x 10m.
