Retractable Tunnels

Proven solutions for sport and industry

A retractable tunnel from Spaciotempo provides many benefits. Whether you need to shelter goods from the elements, protect players walking out onto the pitch or performers entering an arena, our versatile industrial tunnelsretractable sports tunnels and covered walkways, can be tailored to your exact requirements.

Available in a range of widths and heights, our industrial tunnels can be used for a variety of reasons, such as creating a weather-proof option for the protection of goods and personnel during loading operations or creating sheltered through routes between existing buildings.

Spaciotempo’s industrial tunnels are made of anodised aluminium structural arches that are connected by galvanised steel pantographs. Each arch is equipped with two nylon wheels which run along a sunken lift proof track, ensuring the tunnel remains firmly secured to the ground. Smaller, lighter retractable tunnels can be equipped with rubber wheels without the lift proof track as a more cost-effective option.

A retractable sports tunnel offers both protection and potentially lucrative sponsorship opportunities. When branded with sponsor logos, players’ tunnels become the focal point of attention when a team walks out onto the pitch. Working alongside our sister company, Stadia by GL events, Spaciotempo can organise anything from basic graphics, to full branding or promotional messaging to meet your requirements and each of our tunnels is available in a wide colour gamut to co-ordinate with your club’s colours.

As with all of our structures, a retractable telescopic tunnel from Spaciotempo is made to the highest specification. Our on-site manufacturing facilities enable us to design and create all of our concertina tunnels in-house, meaning quality of the highest order is guaranteed. With decades’ worth of experience and countless satisfied customers, a retractable sports tunnel from Spaciotempo is a winning choice.

A covered walkway can be a great addition to many leisure environments. Whether you require a canopy walkway to protect your guests at a special event, or need an entrance tunnel for privacy or promotional purposes, Spaciotempo has a convenient and cost-effective temporary walkway solution to fit your needs.

A popular application is to use tunnels to provide year-round maintenance of vessels at a number of boat clubs across the country. The advantages of a retractable tunnel, with its ability to be re-located to cover another section of the vessel while it is being worked on, means that maintenance can take place all year round. The bespoke option of a totally clear cover, or clear roof enables work to be carried out using natural daylight where possible.

Key Benefits

Flexible & Relocatable

Available in widths from 1m to 15m, with eave heights from 2m to 5m, our retractable tunnels can be purchased in a range of standard sizes or custom built to order. Tunnels can connect to existing internal or external walls, stand independently, or be anchored in position.

Space Saving

Free up valuable space for other business operations by retracting your tunnel to a minimum of 25cm when not in use, or relocate elsewhere across your site. A variety of size options exist, depending on whether your solution would benefit from our lift-proof track system.

Quick To Install

For smaller tunnels with straightforward specifications, we are often able to deliver your solution for self-installation. With more complex tunnel specifications, we will conduct a site visit to assess how location and terrain may affect performance before conducting the installation on your behalf.

Branding Opportunities

Retractable tunnels are available in a wide range of colours. In addition, high visibility and excellent exposure can be achieved through branding with corporate logos and promotional messages to strengthen your brand image, or to promote a specific marketing campaign.


Our retractable tunnels are made from anodised aluminium arches, assembled with cast aluminium joints and connected by power-coated aluminium cross-pantographs to enable extension and retraction. Locking bars on each set of pantographs keep the tunnel taut when fully extended.

Quality & Safe

Built with quality and safety in mind, tough flame retardant PVC-coated covers are made from single panels, each a metre wide to enable cost-effective replacement of small sections and rapid re-branding.
