EXTECH's SKYSHADE 3100 is a standing seam canopy that offers continuous battens that snap over panel edges to form seams. It provides daylighting, UV screening, and impact resistance. Long panels eliminate the need for horizontal interruptions in the glazing and can be cold-formed to a radius (unlike glass).
The SKYSHADE 3100 is built with the most advanced aluminum perimeter framing system in the industry. EXTECH’s framing system uses low friction gaskets that accommodate the thermal movement that is inherent to polycarbonate panels of any significant length. This eliminates noise from thermal movement and provides for a longer system lifespan.
These benefits make the SKYSHADE 3100 system an ideal and economical choice for commercial and industrial canopies, pavilions, and walkway covers.
