Bowls Canopies

If your bowling club is looking to install a fabric cover over synthetic bowling greens, you need to talk to Light Weight Structures.

Our copyright Crescent Wide Span Fabric Structure offers the ultimate in bowling green canopies.

As an alternative to existing open ended structures using trussed steel, our structure uses a wishbone configuration of large sections of heavy duty pipe and valley cables resulting in minimalistic design lines, improved functionality, aesthetics and reduced cleaning maintenance.

With a unique architectural ridge and valley canopy, the inherent beauty of the structure lies in the underbelly of the fabric canopy and the ambient internal environment created within the structure.

The eastern and western ends of the structure are designed with curved structural support to add stability to the fabric canopy. The low perimeter beam on the eastern and western ends also provides much needed protection from the hot summer mornings, afternoon sun and prevailing weather.

For night time use, the Wide Span structure’s full perimeter frame encapsulates artificial light that illuminates the canopy and reflects shadow free lighting down to the playing surface. Externally the structure appears as a dome. This external view emphasizes the high functionality of the project, protection from the elements and night-time use.
