Shade Systems Provides New 'Octagon' Mega Span for City of Oakland Park, Florida

Ocala, FL, July 27, 2010 --( Shade Systems is proud to announce the City of Oakland Park, Florida, has purchased an ‘Octagon’ Mega Span shade cover to shade a playground at Collins Community Center. The Octagon shade design features an eight-sided canopy with eight support columns, giving it a whimsical “carousel” look.

The City of Oakland Park had to replace an existing shade structure from a defunct shade company which had collapsed in a rain storm, and since the company had gone bankrupt, no warranty coverage was in effect.

Mr. Lance Moll, the City’s Parks Superintendent, called on Shade Systems to design, fabricate, and install a replacement structure, complete with all new concrete foundations. Upon smooth completion of the work, Lance expressed his pleasant surprise at how much more substantial the Shade Systems structure’s construction is than the previous, collapsed shade. Shade Systems engineers its shade products to meet the most stringent design specifications, including withstanding up to 90 mph of wind speeds with the canopy on and 150 mph hurricane code with the canopy removed.

In addition to the gold-standard Shade Systems reputation for quality and durability, the City selected Shade Systems for its remarkably innovative Turn-N-Slide(TM) easy fastening system. 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.
