Full on-site repair and replacement service

for arena nets and curtains



Hem Damage

Replacement sections

New tabs

Whole canvas replacement




From small holes to large rips and missing sections, MDS will come to site and repair the curtain with the minimum of downtime and disruption to you and your members.

This is the curtain over at Doug Ellis Sports Centre. The extent of the damage was unspeakable. But no task is too small for us. We fully replaced all the canvas on-site and tidied up all the netting at the top. Now its looking as good as new.

We replaced the trolleys for Blue Coats School in Reading. This involves taking the entire curtian down, removing the old trolleys and then attach the new ones. once they are all on we then lift the curtain up and fix it all in place.

MDS uses a heavy-duty, twin needle industrial sewing machine that easily stitches the material using a very strong thread; before sewing takes place, the torn fabric is trimmed to reduce the fluffy edges produced when canvas rips and the rip is then folded and double stitched to produce a tidy, professional and strong repair.


Where required new canvas sections can be sewn into a curtain to replace lost or badly damaged material, this includes completely replacing the canvas.


Colour matching will vary due to varying colour batches and age of material

The pictures above show a new high-level net fitted by MDS from the balcony handrail to the ceiling, this net was fitted to prevent balls, shuttlecocks etc passing onto the balcony and the gym roof.



Damaged net where the velcro strips that attach the net to the rebound boards have been torn away, MDS repaired the net and the velcro strips in situe.
