A Cantilevered Shade Cover / Structure is any structure that has horizontal beams that extend beyond or outward from the primary vertical columns. Therefore usually two corners of the shade structure do not have any vertical support columns and thereby eliminating visibility obstacles and safety obstacles and improving access (e. g. car parking lots).
Our Cantilevered Shade Covers are used at any outdoor gathering place such as pools, water parks, parking lots, bleachers, grandstands, dugouts, team benches, playgrounds, outdoor amphitheatres, marinas, yacht clubs, golf courses, resorts and country clubs. They have been designed and engineered to eliminate support posts from one side of the shade cover. Therefore, the shaded area has a large space with easy access and unimpeded visibility. And our Cantilevered Shade Covers provide for easy arrangement of tables, chairs and other seating designs.
Our Cantilevered Shade Covers also offer our remarkable All-weather Sun-Tec® fabric which retards 95% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. The netting factor of the cover fabric allows hotter air to escape upward and in the process cooler surrounding air is drawn into the shaded area. The net effect of this cooling ventilation process is a temperature as much as 20 degrees cooler under the shade cover. This is a significant advantage over hard cover structures such as metal, wood or tile which will actually trap heat underneath the structure. Our shade covers allow families, adults and children to spend more time outdoors enjoying their favorite activities.
An additional benefit of our Cantilevered Shade Covers is that the shade they provide actually protects the equipment and seating structures underneath from sunlight induced deterioration. The plastic equipment and powder-coated finishes of the shaded equipment will have years added to their useful lives. One could say that these shade covers are actually paying for themselves by extending the lifespan of other equipment.
Our Cantilevered Shade Covers can be easily replaced or repaired if necessary. If the entire canopy needs to be replaced the cost is about 15 – 20% of the total cost of the original purchase. The fabric can be repaired and the cost is as low as 5% of the total cost of the original purchase.
Our Double Cantilevered Shade Covers are designed to keep the vertical support posts at the center of the shaded area. Therefore, there are two large shaded areas on either side of the support posts. These double shaded covers provide the fewest possible post obstructions and are ideal for car parking, two-sided bleachers, and table/chair seating areas.
Our Cantilevered Shade Covers are also designed to reduce vandalism. The vertical support posts do not have any footholds or climbing rungs. And most of our shade covers are over ten feet high which is out of reach of vandals.
We are able to design and build any Cantilevered Shade Cover to meet your needs. We are able to build squares, rectangles, and octagons in sizes from the small 10 foot x 10 foot to the large 60 foot x 80 foot structure.

Our shade cover systems offer a 20 year guarantee on the support structure and a 10 year guarantee on the canopy fabric.
