Our standard shadeports are constructed from tubular mild steel framework. Legs are either concreted into the ground or bolted with raw bolts to a concrete slab. The structure is covered with a knitted polyethylene net, which is sewn together with a Double needle machine for maximum strength and stretch. The net is fixed to the frame using a galvanized steel cable or pipe surround. All steelwork is primed and painted with enamel.
The shadecloth is approved by the cancer association. A shadeport comprises of a structural frame across which a shade cloth type of material or net is pulled to provide shade cover for a vehicle which is parked beneath it. The structural frame of the shade port can vary greatly in terms of material, method of construction and design. Timber frame shadeports are suited to creating individual shade spaces for private and domestic use and can be designed to complement the existing design of the house.
Steel frame carports are usually made from tubular steel and are suitable for both domestic use and for providing shade for hundreds or even thousands of parking bays at places such as South Africa’s large International Airports like Johannesburg International Airport, Cape Town International Airport or Durban International Airport where hundreds of parking bays require a cost effective and economical shadeport shade solution.
