Sun Shade Structures are a permanent steel structure, which has a fabric canopy in either shade-mesh or vinyl. These types of structures are designed with 4 posts and curved rafters, raised at the centre to allow ample run-off of water.
Sun Shade Structures provide the most efficient sun protection alternative becsuse all 4 posts are low, rather than differing height posts.
Elevated View - Linked Sun Shade Structure
Sun Shade Structures provide a very stable design approach to covering very large areas. Very large structures, multiple solutions and linked structures can be built employing this design option. Illustrated below, is a Sun Shade Structure described as a linked solution, which has numerous Sun Shade Structures utilising the one canopy.
With multiple solutions, individual canopies are applied
Structurally, this alternative provides for a much longer life, which is related to our design approach. The design is always utilised by using much stronger post specifications than required, which creates additional reserve capacity. These very large structures are ideal to cover an entire car park, which can be supplied in a waterproof vinyl or a non-waterproof shade mesh fabric.
