Shade Systems Provides Innovative ‘Sail’ Shades to City of Lake Charles in Multi-Park Project

Lake Charles, LA, January 10, 2009 --( Shade Systems is proud to announce it was recently awarded a multi-park shade project by the City of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The City of Lake Charles was the recipient of a FEMA grant to rebuild their community after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. When Mayor Randy Roach and Parks Director Bruce Rigney began shopping for shade for their parks, aesthetics and functionality were chief among their concerns. Instead of just standard shade, an impressive and visually appealing effect was desired. Shade Systems was selected by the City of Lake Charles for its commitment to design innovation, and its demonstrated track record for the quality and durability of its Shade Sails product line.

Pat Moore of Moore Planning Group, the project manager, selected Shade Systems to design and manufacture a series of innovative Shade Sails to cover seven parks for the Parks and Recreation department.

Shade Sails, manufactured exclusively by Shade Systems, feature uncompromising technical specifications, including stainless steel one-point connections and concealed tension cables for long life. Sails are pre-engineered in imaginative shapes to add visual interest and beauty to a play structure’s skyline while protecting children from the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet rays with up to 99% sun screening. Shade Sails feature their durable CoolNet™ shade fabric, which is available in a variety of colors and protected with an industry-leading 10-year warranty.
