To provide a shaded area adjacent to the clients swimming pool. The cover needed to survive UK summer weather on an exposed site.
A Site visit was carried out to determine sizes, discuss available fixings and sort out the operating requirements.
It was agreed that a symmetrical tensile roof shade was appropriate. The shape was developed in house and the specification for fabric and support posts determined.
A striped 400gsm acrylic material was selected to give good ascetics, UV stability and a light weight. The posts were set up to be free standing allowing the cover to be pulled into position with a series of marine pulleys.
The panels of the cover were computer cut in house and then stitched and finished using polyester webbing to reinforce the load paths.
A detailed groundwork plan was prepared to allow the customer to use his own ground staff to prepare the required footings.
