An Introduction to Able Canopies

Dallington Square Umbrellas

Dallington Square Umbrellas

The Dallington Square Umbrella is a stunning, square edged umbrella which fits well in urban landscapes and can be constructed up to 6 metres x 6 metres enabling it to cover large areas.

This permanent shade structure is ideal for use as covered student social areas and covered outdoor dining areas within colleges and universities. It can also be used within parks, creating a shaded seating area for picnics and offering shelter from the rain.

This all-year-round structure is supported by a 168mm x 6mm tubular steel post and is covered with a durable waterproof tensile fabric roof which is supplied in white as standard, however there are 39 additional vibrant and contemporary colours to choose from at an additional cost. The steel post and frame can be galvanised to prolong the life of your structure. It is also available powder coated to any standard RAL colour allowing the structure to fit in with your current aesthetics. Or choose to have it both galvanised and powder coated for ultimate corrosion protection.

The Fabric

Our exclusive tensile fabric is completely waterproof and is constructed from a woven base cloth which has high tenacity polyester threads. Throughout the manufacturing process, the fabric is coated under constant tension in both warp and weft directions giving it a high performance polymer surface layer. The exclusive technology used on the yarn, gives it true elongation resistance, so once coated, minimum movement in the finished product will occur which is a key factor in the durability of the fabric on your tensile structure.

The fabric is white as standard, however if you would like a colourful structure to match your surroundings, there are 39 additional colours to choose from which are available at an additional cost. It can adapt to any required shape and size including walkways and umbrellas which makes them particularly suited to the education and leisure sectors. The flexibility of the fabric allows us to present you with an exciting range of tensile structures in whatever commercial settings you require cover for.

The Dallington Square Umbrella requires only periodic cleaning. To clean the structure we recommend a solution of warm water and a non-abrasive cleaner. For more information please see the maintenance schedule which is found in your After Sales pack.
