Stuart Canvas has recently completed a project with Ipswich Town FC at their home stadium, Portman Road.  The club required a new 14m tunnel with custom floor tracking which would offer the players protection from any potential falling objects when players are walking onto the pitch. It also offers a premium extension to the facilities at the Portman Road and helps build an atmosphere at the beginning of each game.

The new players’ tunnel features blue Kadar panels with velcro sections that allow sponsorship logos to be placed along the tunnel when required. The tunnels Kadar system allows for panels to be individually removed if replacements are needed overtime, which prolongs the tunnels lifespan. The tunnel’s mechanism allows for the tunnel to be retraced quickly and easily.

Stuart Canvas has 50 years experience in manufacturing, constructing and installing high-quality tunnels for both the sports and industrial sector. Many of which are custom-made or bespoke for the client.  In projects such as these Stuart Canvas are happy to provide CAD drawings and concepts. These are provided ahead of manufacturing in order to ensure both the client and our manufacturing team are aligned in their ideas.

Stuart Canvas tunnels are available in a range of sizes to suit your needs. They can be fixed, free-standing or retractable, with sunken or floor mounted tracking. The dedicated Research and Development team can find you a solution to unusual covering issues or requirements you may have.
