Cantilever shade canopy structures have horizontal beams that extend beyond vertical columns. Cars, trucks, forklifts, and other vehicles are less likely to hit them. They also present fewer visual obstructions to spectators, workers, pedestrians, and drivers.
See photos of cantilever shade structures.
This fabric shade canopy projects out 14′ from its columns and is 60′ long. The cantilevered beams make it unnecessary for columns on this shade structure to interfere with anything on the pool deck. The structure shades pool lounge chairs, which aren’t shown. The photo was taken at 6:30 PM in July, so shadows aren’t on the pool deck.
