Skyshade 8000 standing-seam canopy system uses continuous mullions that rigidly clamp translucent, structural cellular polycarbonate glazing panels for long spans and high loads. Providing daylighting, UV screening, and impact resistance, the system is said to withstand extreme winds. A range of detail options includes panels in a matte finish and a variety of colors. Optional coatings for the panels enhance solar heat gain managements and diffuse lighting without glare. Slopes as low as 2:12 can be accommodated. Custom rafter shapes and designs are available. The system meets loads in excess of 160 psf at 8-ft. spans. Panels are individually replaceable.
