One beautiful structure, so many ways to use it

Home  /  School Canopies  /  Sahara


What a brilliant addition this would be to your nursery, school or college. Yes, it looks amazing, but it’s also got strength, space and endless possibilities.

The large single conic that is our Sahara is a hugely practical tensile structure. In nurseries, schools and colleges around the country, its already doing a fine job providing shelter from wet, windy weather and shade on warm, sunny days. You’ll also find it being used as an outdoor performance space, sheltered play area, relaxed learning zone or place to gather and eat – and it does them all effortlessly.

But what you probably also need to know is that it’s incredibly strong, sturdy enough to withstand all weathers (all-year-round) and that it comes in a vast range of fabrics and colours. It can even be personalised with your own logo or images. And in case we forgot to say, it’s also waterproof, blocks UV rays and comes with our very own 10-year warranty. What more could you want?

Still not big enough for what you have in mind? Take a look at our Double Sahara which gives you two canopies instead of one – or talk to us about having something similar produced to your exact requirements.
