Please describe the project specifications

This is a motorized Slide on Wire retractable shade system using all marine grade stainless steel tension hardware, marine grade pulley's and high strength low stretch sailing line to move the shades.

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

This is to shade the patio located in front of the executive offices for entertaining and comfort control.
