Freestanding Shade Sails

Simply elegant or simply utilitarian, shade sails of any shape, any size or even any combination can be erected as freestanding cover to shield patios, pools, gardens and entryways from the sun. While shade sails can also be partially mounted to exterior walls, some of the most eye-catching are those erected to cover open spaces.

Screening for Hospitality

Courtyards, decks and overlook patios have become an industry standard when designing for hotels, restaurants and clubs. Being able to offer customers a view, or even better, an outdoor seating view gives a business a leg up on it’s competitors. It is the first choice for seating for many customers and will fill up more quickly than indoor seating. Every club owner or restaurant owner knows this. However, needing to also plan for inclement weather is a necessity in order to extend the useable season.

DesignElements in Steel

Steel utilized as the main element in building infrastructure is common and used in most large commercial buildings and homes, but is often hidden in the interiors. Staircases, bridges, outdoor railings and many other uses are also common, but steel is less often used as a true visual, architectural element. Patio covers, tenting and shade sails are typically supported by steel mounts, but when it is incorporated into the design for outdoor shade, steel design framing can create a striking profile to the installation.

Southwest Monsoon Protection

We love the rain in the southwest. In fact, we count on it for a good portion of the annual rainfall in the summer months. Winter snows in the mountains and throughout northern New Mexico count for much of the balance each year. But as anyone who has lived here for a year soon discovers, weather can come in with a blast and often does! High winds, dramatic temperature changes, downpours and hail are common, with ensuing floods and sometimes dangerous conditions.

Shade Sail Design

As shade sails can be constructed in virtually any geometric shape and designed to cover nearly any area, you might as well have some fun with it. From a massive cover which will require some center supports to multiple sails to shield a large area, the first consideration is knowing the space below and how the sun moves over it during the day. Begin by defining the hot spots (those areas which receive the greatest sun) and the cooler spots (those which require some shade but not full coverage).

Domed Awnings

Domed awnings offer the classic dressy or professional profile. We see them on hotel entries, restaurants, galleries and businesses. The arched construction offers shelter from the elements and allows rain to run off the sides. Often finished with a scalloped or decorative valance, they look polished and upscale and are appealing in the curved embrace of their design.

Building With Screens

There are a surprising variety of applications for outdoor screening. Constructed of a heavy mesh, outdoor screening shields areas from 90% of UV rays from the sun and protects areas from wind and weather. Screening can be mounted as fixed protection from the elements or mounted on rollers and hung so that it can be rolled up or down as needed.
