Aten

PalmSHADE & PalmSHIELD's Aten Sun Shade is the ideal aluminum shade structure for roadside benches and outdoor rest areas. A cantilevered system, it consists of columns and support beams fashioned from rust-resistant aluminum, all pre-finished with polyester powder coating and assembled with PalmSHIELD's dependable stainless steel hardware. The result is a professionally designed standing sun shade that'll last and comfort users for years to come. The Aten comes in straight and closed form, as well as an open curve formation, which is ideal for sheltering benches along a curved path. For this reason, it's ideal for parks, gardens, and sidewalk covers. Check out our pre-existing rooftop designs, or collaborate with our staff to custom-create an original design! What's more, we design and customize the sun shade to your site's specific needs!
