Please describe the project specifications

18 paneled shade sail installation using 6 perimeter & 1 center column with a unique design look.

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

To create in a unique looking shade structure for a local outdoor shopping center near a California university.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The overall design had called for 12 perimeter attachment points but the client did not want that many obstructions. To solve this we used stainless steel tension cables between each of the six remaining columns. The sails were then attached mid-span with stainless steel marine grade shackles. Also unique is the LED lighting set into a groove running the length of all of 12" diameter the columns.

What were the results of the project?

A very popular outdoor seating area in the center of the center.
