Project Description


This project was a simple request “to provide weather protect for the correctional centre inmates in the main courtyard”. The big challenge that came with this location was that the structure could not be used as a climbing aid, be safe and placed high out of reach. Elite Shade found the answer with an engineered inverted conical structure with one single support column, the structure measures 12.0m x 12.0m and is fitted with a 2.5m diameter anti climb disc at the top of the column. The use of Ferrari 702s2 fabric provides protection to inmates in a variety of weather conditions, year-round.
