Please describe the project specifications

This project presented itself as shade for a Winery "Tasting Room" approximately 30’ x 30’, multi-level exotic wood deck.


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

The purpose of this project was to dispense with their umbrellas and shade the deck. The Client asked us to design, engineer, fabricate, and install shade sails.


What is unique or complex about the project?

The challenge on this project was to shade the desired footprint, keep the head room at the top, maintain interesting sail shapes, while retaining adequate space between the sails. Working with our engineer we achieved the roof heights necessary to create sail artistry that complements. The unique color distinction comes from using the same Alnet Extrablock fabric in Pearl Onyx with opposing fabric sides down.


What were the results of the project?

The Client is very happy. The shade profile presented was achieved. It has yielded 1 project and numerous referrals.
