HAIL CANOPY – CUSTOM DESIGN AND DELIVERY PROCESS
Are winds a disruption to you? Then perhaps you are looking for a reliable way to tame them. Something durable and efficient suitable for solving the annoyance of fresh breezes all the way to resisting the power of extreme storms.
Step 1 – Clarify your hail protection needs
What are the priority areas to be protected?
What visual features of the existing site need to be maintained or accentuated?
(eg view of showroom a potential customer sees from the street)
Which are the main accessways and fire lanes for the existing buildings?
Step 2 – Preliminary design
(typically 2 weeks)
WSS provides no-charge 3D drawing and cost estimate based on your answers to Step 1
You comment back and a second drawing and estimate are provided if appropriate
Step 3 Foundation and permitting checks
(typically 2-6 weeks)
There is a nominal fee for this Step.
Underground and planning information is gathered and analysed
A revised drawing is provided and (when agreed) a cost quotation prepared.
Step 4 Detailed Design
(typically 3 weeks)
Complete drawings are created for final permit applications, fabrication, and installation.
Step 5 Fabrication
(typically 8 weeks)
The various components are manufactured to WSS specifications and your requirements in a number of locations around the world.
Step 6 Installation
(typically 2 weeks)
A detailed schedule is agreed upon. It will cover which areas are needed and when, to minimize site disruption and maintain site safety.
At the completion a complete quality inspection is taken

RELATED CASE STUDIES
The operators at an energy generation facility with air-coolers were frustrated. Every time the wind blew, their generation efficiency dropped.
Wind Protection for Solar Field
A solar field supplier wished to refine their design to cut the cost of the mirror supports in a windy location. A related side benefit was that they could have the parabolic mirrors orientated to continue to generate electricity in wind storms that would otherwise require the mirrors to be rotated to the “stow” position facing into the ground.
