Please describe the project specifications

Free Standing Tension Umbrellas with up light down lights Heaters & Fire Sprinkler lines inside the columns.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

These tension umbrellas are used to shade heat & light the outdoor dinning area.

What is unique or complex about the project?

Each umbrella was patterned using MPanel modeling software. One of the unique aspects are the two fire suppression lines running from the footing through the center of the column with heads extending out of the top. Do to the proximity to the building the sprinkler lines were required by the city building department.

Also each tension umbrella is installed in an array pattern to follow the curve of the building.

What were the results of the project?

They preform perfectly and have been a visual attraction from the street as well.
