J & J. Carter Ltd

J & J Carter is a name synonymous with award winning tensile fabric structures.

Tensile fabric structures make it possible to create dramatic, exciting and striking architectural works as they offer variety of form, translucency, colour and softness, are lightweight and use tension to create the three dimensional form.

We provide turnkey solutions for the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of all types of fabric structures and enclosures, including event marquees and sports halls, along with providing a range of accessories and transportation products.

A J & J Carter structure is of the highest quality materials and components, with long life expectancy, capable of meeting all fire & safety regulations and supplied with a manufacturer's 10 year warranty.

S.Sampson I am very pleased with the quality of the products made by J & J Carter. For me, they made the sidesreens and a tensile canopy for a garden gazebo. I was also very pleased with how helpful the company was. Even though they must have clients with very large orders they still give first rate service to individual customers. Many Thanks.
Manchester College The installation of the canopy was outstanding from start to finish, with minimal disruption during our busiest week of the year, enrolment week. Visually it works to provide an exciting touch to the building approach.
National Railway Museum The work carried out by J & J Carter was actually finished before the anticipated completion date, with minimal disruption to ongoing activity at the museum. The structure is impressive, reliable and fully functional in the purposes for which it was intended.
Stringer & Jones Architects The superb design has worked to enhance the terrace and assist in providing an idyllic surround for the residents of the development to enjoy the views of the ocean, which is a major selling point. The outstanding quality of work gives us confidence that the canopies will withstand the environmental conditions of the location. J & J Carter worked admirably alongside the builders to fit into the scheme.
Arup From a design point of view this was an extremely challenging piece of engineering design and we had to have complete confidence in the manufacture and erection - which we did get from J & J Carter. Also the programme was incredibly tight and from when we first approached them very late in the day they did deliver to the project deadlines.
Sandown Park Racecourse The canopies have modernised and improved the appearance of the racecourse. As well as providing adequate coverage for our spectators in all types of weather, the floodlit canopies have made the area multi-purpose as we are able to use it in the evenings.
