How we work

Shade Engineering specialises in providing effective shading solutions to Car Parks for shopping centres, offices and apartment buildings. With over twenty years experience we can assist you with all aspects of the design and installation process.

Modular Arch Designs are ideal where minimum visual and structural intrusion is sought. The low profile steel arch minimises the height of the structure, maintaining visibility for a building facade or signage. The arch design is also well suited for covering rows of single car bays. Available in both solid membrane and architectural shade mesh, these design provide effective, efficient coverage, while maintaining ease of access for large commercial vehicles.

The design is most cost-effective when spanning multiples of three bays, and perimeter columns rather than central columns can be specified for further cost saving. These structures are available with a waterproof tensile membrane or architectural mesh fabric.

Manta [Hypar] sail designs are available as continuous spans, or individual sails connected at alternate high and low points to maximise the twisted wing sail effect. Using “commercial grade” shade mesh, sails generally provide the cheapest shade option, but can lose a lot of shade area due to scalloping and requires careful design to avoid large shade gaps between the sails.

Manta structures can also be designed using waterproof tensile membranes or architectural grade structural mesh.
