A commercial fabric shade canopy has upper steel framing that shapes cable-tensioned HDPE shade fabric into various roof styles (i.e. hips, pyramids, kites, hexagons, octagons, vaulted barrels, etc). Shade sails, by contrast, don’t require steel framing.
These permanent shade structures have in-ground footings and require building permits. We custom engineer them to site-specific building code. They can stand-alone or attach to other robust structures.
Due to their large clear span capability, fabric shade canopies require fewer columns than structures of other building materials. Horizontal beams can be cantilevered to minimize physical and visual obstructions sometimes caused by columns. This makes them ideal as parking and bleacher shade structures.
Tension fabric canopies are a cost-efficient way to shade large, outdoor areas. We supplied and constructed individual fabrics as big as 4000 square feet! See hip roof fabric shade canopy. They’re a great way to cool patios, walkways, pools, playgrounds, car washes, auto dealerships, waiting areas, entrances, parking lots, bleachers, etc.
