Installation of tensioned shade structures and the related steel works is a very specialised field. If the steel structure is installed incorrectly the engineering will be voided and this can cause serious problems with the installation of the canopy. Poor installation of steel can cause injury or death if failures occur. Tensioned shade structure canopies are designed to be installed to a particular loading to ensure that the canopy performs to its optimal.

Using the experience of some of the countries most experienced installers you can be sure of a quality installation each and every time.
