Shade System Options Hurricane-resistant standard structures or fully custom options

Example of a Parasoleil™ Eclipse Series™ – Framed Solar Shade System

Eclipse Series™ – Framed Solar Shade System

Like a piece of artwork, framed structures are ideal to create separation between similar elements in the environment. The Eclipse Series™ of shade structures is engineered and rated for hurricane force winds and is the perfect “drop-in” structure for your amenity rooftop or high wind condition site. Rectangular panels lay on top of steel structural elements secured with innovative hidden fasteners that leaves almost a welded look, though no welding is ever required. The aluminum patterned panels can be selected and engineered for various wind load conditions giving you scores of options to choose from.

Example of a Parasoleil™ Eclipse Series™ – Unframed Solar Shade System

Eclipse Series™ – Unframed Solar Shade System

Our Eclipse Series™ offering includes the unframed structure, which tends to float openly in a space and create a sense of peace with undefined boundaries. Though the overall effect of this design is lighter and more ethereal, these systems are equally structurally rigid as the framed systems, with complete engineering calculations and designed as a bolt together assembly. Ideal applications include gardens, parks, open spaces, retail centers, resorts, and pool decks with high wind requirements and/or extreme weather conditions.


Example of a Parasoleil™ Custom System
