The EXTECH SKYSHADE 8000® standing seam, translucent canopy system is engineered for long spans, snow loading conditions and to withstand extreme wind loads including in hurricane-prone areas. The system’s continuous runs accommodate panels up to 54 feet long, and provide daylighting, UV screening and impact resistance without leak prone intermediate horizontal mullions. Optional coatings for the glazing panels enhance solar heat gain management and diffuse lighting without glare. Its durable framing system uses recycled aluminum as standard and, after its useful life as part of a canopy, the metal is 100 percent recyclable. Photo by Cory Klein
