Widely popular in Aquatic facilities due to their unique configuration options, Kite Sail Shade Structures are the perfect solution for those hard to reach spaces where shade is needed. Our Kite Sail utilizes a four posted frame that features a canopy, tensioned in a hyperbolic style, with one column raised taller than the others. With eave heights ranging from 8’ to 16’ high, this structure is available with a Surface or in-ground Mount.
Our shade structures come in a variety of sizes and price ranges. Contact our team for the most accurate price estimate.
