Margate, FL, May 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Shade Systems is proud to announce the installation of its Mega Span shade covers for the City of Margate, Florida, to cover their hypo sodium tanks at the city water treatment plant.
The City of Margate has used Shade Systems to cover their playgrounds at their recreation facilities in the past, and realized the same cooling properties that protect adults and children from the sun’s harmful U.V. rays can also protect valuable property such as their tanks.
According to Mr. Rick Van Acker, the City of Margate’s Superintendent for Water Operations, the polyethylene construction of the treatment tanks is susceptible to deterioration from the sun’s rays, and as a result the tanks need to be replaced every 4 or 5 years if left unprotected. Rick realized that by covering the tanks with a Mega Span, the Shade Systems CoolNet(TM) shade fabric would screen out over 90% of the sun’s damaging U.V. rays, thereby extending the life of the tanks by at least 2 years. Because of how expensive the tanks are to replace, that added lifespan more than pays for the cost of the shade over the long run.
Upon completion of the installation, Rick expressed surprise at how massive the Shade Systems Mega Span’s construction is, and how confident that makes him feel as hurricane season approaches. In that same vein, The City of Margate has selected Shade Systems products in the past, and has cited our remarkably innovative Turn-N-SlideTM easy fastening system as an important feature. The Turn-N-Slide system makes it simple for as few as just one person to quickly remove the canopy in case of hurricane. Just as importantly, it also allows City staff to re-attach their canopy without hiring expensive outside help. And only Shade Systems products come complete with an instructional video on DVD format which shows how to use the Turn-N-Slide to remove and then re-attach your canopy.
