Ocala, FL, December 12, 2008 --( Shade Systems is proud to announce it has provided its innovative and aesthetically-designed Shade Kites for the City of Tupelo, Mississippi. Installed at the City’s Rob Leake City Pool earlier this year, the Shade Kites have provided much-needed protection from the sun’s dangerous U.V. rays for the City’s residents and visitors alike.

Amy Williams, Aquatics and Tennis Program Director for the City of Tupelo said, “With my aquatic staff, I stress the importance of sun protection. Our main priority is the service that we provide to our citizens. Our services must not be compromised by the lack of shade or sun protection to our citizens. This was the most practical and most cost efficient project.”

Shade Kites feature our exclusive Turn-N-Slide™ easy fastening and removal system which makes removal and reattachment of your canopy a breeze. No other shade manufacturer offers the flexibility to easily remove and reattach your shade once it has been installed. Williams said, “The kites are easily removed for the winter months and our maintenance staff will put them back in place mid-Spring with the easy Turn-N-SlideTM. Everyone who visits our pool asks about the shade kites and compliments them.”

Several shade companies were considered by the City of Tupelo for providing shade to their facilities. After a thorough comparison of all bids, Shade Systems was chosen based on quality, aesthetically-pleasing design and functionality with the easy-to-use Turn-N-SlideTM system.
