benefit from cutting edge sail technology
In a tropical climate, protection against
the sun and the rain is one of the architects greatest challenges.
One solution being offered by Phuket business Shades, takes
advantage of marine sail technology.
“We recently made a conscious decision
to adapt our experience, skills and knowledge of marine
weather protection products to offer stylish and durable
sun shades for resorts, homes and outdoor recreation areas”
says company founder Chuck Graeme.
The designs are stunning and practical and although they
look simple they are in fact incredibly complex. The stresses
and strains that such structures experience mean thousands
of calculations even for the simplest design.
“We already had an expert designer on our team and
we invested 250,000 baht in design software that enables
us to quickly draw up plans for customers based on the area
that needs covering.” Continues Mr Chuck.
The software means that
they can calculate exactly how much weight is needed to
secure the awnings and whether the existing structure will
be able to provide the support or if additional steel support
poles need to be included in the design. It also means that
they can quickly show the customer exactly how the structure
will look and how it will perform its function at different
times of the day.
Sizes can range in size from 3 metres to
300 metres making them suitable for small scale private
homes but also for large public areas. With new materials
available to them, longevity is not an issue and structures
are just as permanent as conventional roofing structures
and properly installed will cope with the severest weather
conditions. But its not just about practicality, the voluptuous
shapes that can be created can really make a home or commercial
building stand out making them ideal for outdoor entertainment
venues and restaurants where the owner wants to make something
The company has been busy with awnings
designed and installed at Phuket Pavillions, Twin Palms
and Holiday Inn as well as a 300 square metre awning providing
shade for the elephants at Phuket zoo.
