The Nation’s leader in architectural screening and shade solutions.  For over twenty-five years, we have been designing, engineering and fabricating screening and shade solutions for the most innovative and prestigious projects.  Our pre-engineered shade structures, canopies and pergolas are developed with the highest fabrication means and methods, providing superior quality and the most esthetically pleasing designs.

Our pre-engineered aluminum shade structures are designed for sustainability and maintenance free living.  We design our shades, canopies and pergolas based on a series of simple engineering principles which in turn allows us the flexibility to customize our system within those limits and guidelines.  Customization and options are more standard than the exception for PalmSHADE & PalmSHIELD.

Features & Benefits

PalmSHADE’s structures include shelters, pool cabanas, kiosks, bus stop shade structures, steel pavilion structures, picnic shelters, dugouts, gazebos, park pavilions, playground shelters, sidewalk covers, pergolas, metal pavilions and many more. Twenty-five years of working with architects and engineers has resulted in a wide variety of innovative solutions and designs the include:

  • Shades designed and customized specific to your site
  • Structures fabricated in largest possible sections for ease of installation
  • Structures may be designed for standalone or attached to existing structures
  • Roof design may be flat or sloped regardless of canopy design
  • All shades may be internally wired for power supply
  • Custom selected lighting, fans, and fixtures may be incorporated into design

Completely Customizable

PalmSHADE provides a wide range of popular standard structures.  With each shade, pergola and canopy, you may choose your roof-type and side-panel screening.  PalmSHADE provides a quick visual means to easily select your options and customizations.  These options represent the most practical and popular options selected by designers over the last twenty-five years.   However, not all projects fit our standard designs.

Most projects demand more than a standard structure.  Our customers, architects, engineers and designers, are looking for project specific and unique designs that require an attention to detail and variations that accentuate their sites.  This is where we excel!  Customization and unique is our norm. Our team of designers and engineers don’t know typical.  They know working with customers back and forth on tailoring designs that are extraordinary and not ordinary.  Our standard designs are only basis for designs.  These simple standalone structures can kick-start your creativity in creating a design that truly compliments your project.  Be motivated to combine, duplicate, bend, mold and shape these designs.  Let PalmSHADE do the heavy lifting in making your ideas a reality.

Custom Tailoring

Make our design your exclusive design tailored to your project.  From ordinary to extraordinary, standard designs become one-of-a-kind works of art.  Each shade structure and screening should compliment your site as a corner stone of your design.  We look forward to being part of making this happen.  This is our philosophy.
