BP Westlake Project Details

Location: Houston, TX

Architect: Gensler Architect

System: SKYSHADE 3700

Our SKYSHADE 3700 polycarbonate canopy was used to design this beautiful corporate campus park in Houston, TX. EXTECH supplied Opal colored polycarbonate panels and Clearn Anodized finish framing.

Benefits of the SKYSHADE 3700 include:

  • Fully fabricated
  • Accepts glazing up to 1" thick
  • Accepts polycarbonate and glass panels
  • Designed to be self-supporting and can span large openings
  • Deep glazing pockets (rabbet depth) allow thermal movement of polycarbonate glazings
  • Dry glazed, incorporating low friction gasketing to maintain good air & water infiltration seal, while reducing noise caused by the movement of the glazing
  • Leakage and condensation are controlled by separate gutters
  • "Pressure equalized" design aids in water infiltration control
  • Overlapping joinery allows for dimensional variations and provides excellent air & water infiltration resistance
  • Achieved air, water, and structural test results beyond AAMA standards
  • Simple connection of horizontal to vertical framing using EXTECH’s unique stainless steel pin mounting system allows easy installation
  • Light-weight translucent polycarbonate panels reduce installation costs
  • Thermally Improved. Incorporates non-conductive spacers which separate the 'exterior' framing from the 'interior' framing
  • Optional cosmetic aluminum cover caps
  • Finish on aluminum framing can be your choice of anodizing or high-performance factory baked paints
  • Panels come in a variety of colors
  • Accepts Monolithic or cellular polycarbonate or acrylic sheets, or glass from 1/4" (6mm) to 1" (25mm) thick
  • Requires a 2:12 minimum pitch for single-sloped canopies
  • LEED credits available for 100% recyclable polycarbonate and aluminum framing
  • Manufactured in the U.S.A.
