EXTECH’s SKYSHADE 3700 is a versatile canopy system that accepts polycarbonate panels and glass. Designed to be self-supporting, the SKYSHADE 3700’s aluminum pressure caps and rafter extrusions allow for medium and long span conditions. 
The SKYSHADE 3700 utilizes EXTECH’s unique stainless steel pin mounting system, making it incredibly easy for connection of horizontal to vertical framing.  Our framing system controls leakage and condensation with integral gutters, as well as “pressure equalized” design, features which aid in water penetration control. The SKYSHADE 3700 is thermally improved, incorporating non-conductive spacers which separate the exterior framing from the interior framing.

Further details and benefits

  • 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.
