The WeatherSolve retractable hail canopy system has been specifically designed and tested for the hail and snow conditions found in the northern part of Hail Alley.
- Tested to withstand over 4” diameter hailstones with no damage
- Designed to handle 120 mph winds
- Extend the canopy in April, retract it in September… both at the push of a button.
This also allows the canopy to be temporarily retracted if snow heavier than 6” is forecast. The canopy has been engineered to have a low profile and neat appearance to complement existing buildings. The layout is flexible and can be adapted to suit most lot shapes. Wind fences can easily be included on the windy sides. Most designs are set up to cover roadways as well as parking stalls so there are no gaps where wind blown hail can get under the canopy. Each canopy is custom designed to suit the particular situation. This can include changes in elevation, height, access requirements, existing lighting, facility for signage and color schemes. The cover fabric is generally white to show off the cars and maintain light purity. (Colored fabrics distort the perceptions of the cars colors). A wide range of colors are available for the frame and for the winter wraps.
The retraction mechanism is driven by electric motors mounted onto a truss and rail system.
Many of the components are stainless steel for appearance and long life.
Internal poles are positioned within the parking rows. to do this they are spaced at up to 72 ft part.
The internal poles can be adapted to suit lighting fixtures. Alternatively the netting can be positioned to close either side of the existing light poles.
