Simple lines & dramatic architectural form

Home  /  School Canopies  /  Tempest


Tempest structures are hyperbolic tensile sails with simple lines and dramatic architectural form.

These are elegant, eye-catching, statement canopies. Curved steel masts and a fabric canopy tensioned by two high points and low points creates The Tempest’s sculptural sweeping form.

The Tempest is available in Single, Double or Multiple configurations. They are fully engineered to be left in situ all year around and come with a 10 year warranty.

The Tempest is a striking choice, combining a dramatic design with practicality. A range of pre-designed and pre-engineered sizes are available but the structure can also be specifically tailored to suit your site, sizes and requirements.

The Single Tempest has four curved structural steel posts (available in a variety of finishes) supporting a tensioned ‘hyper’ fabric canopy and ranging in size from 5m x 5m to 6m x 6m.

Classic uses for the Tempest range include covered seating / dining areas for restaurants and exclusive home settings, stages, point of sale applications as well as general shelter.
