In any successful architectural project, it is necessary to provide users with a comfortable and comfortable outdoor space. At any time of the year, sunshade structural modules can provide protection from wind, dust, sun, rain, snow and noise in a gentle, flexible and aesthetic manner.
With this in mind, what do we need to look for when choosing a sunshade structure for outdoor space? Below, we have provided you with the necessary suggestions.
1. The Sunshade Structure Must Effectively Resist Climate Conditions
A good structure will allow users to enjoy the outdoors in all weather conditions: against wind and rain, acting as a dust barrier, reducing noise and including extreme anti-ultraviolet ray capabilities. For example, some types of structures can withstand winds of up to 150 miles per hour.
Waterproof fabric, high density polyethylene fabric resistant to UV rays, stainless steel frames and optimal operating accessories to achieve these effects. The selected color may also affect the level of resistance to harmful UV rays.
2. Maximize the use of space, support the shape and size of the sunshade structure
There are many different options that allow us to shade from outside without obstructing or limiting living space. Square, rectangular, hexagonal or octagonal umbrellas – all have one thing in common: they can effectively cover large areas by connecting different units away from their pillars.
On the other hand, Cantilever-like structures, go through two pillars and create space so as not to interrupt the activities that take place below. They work very well in walkways, bus seats, waiting seats and parking lots.
3. Choose a flexible shading structure
If your outdoor space is designed to be used for different functions, we recommend that you choose a mobile structure that is easy to open / close and move. The umbrella structure can be quickly opened and collapsed, some also include a 360-degree rotation option, allowing extensive flexibility that suit your needs.
4. If your sunshade structure uses fabric, pay special attention to its quality
The structure of a sunshade structure is the key – in addition to determining the general aesthetic of space, its surface directly receives the impact of the region’s climatic conditions. Knitted fabrics are resistant to fading, abrasion, decay and shrinkage. In addition, fabric material allows hot air to rise and escape, thus creating a cooler environment.
5. The height of your sunshade structure can completely change the atmosphere of space
The height of the roof or eaves is essential when determining the characteristics of outdoor space. A lower height can create a more intimate and cozy atmosphere, while higher heights provide a more open and formal atmosphere. While there is a large range of shade structures, the most common are from seven to twelve feet.
6. Special and dynamic space design with sail-like structures
With triangular, hyperbolic, hexagonal and square shapes, sail-like structures can be grouped to create dynamic and fun spaces, blending different colors as well as elevation. and arrangement.
