Saddle-Shaped Shade Structure
One of our most exciting designs, the Helena Modular Shade Structure is a circular, anticlastic saddle-like structure supported by 3 perimeter pillars. Perfect for shading and weather proofing a school courtyard or covered outdoor learning area, the wave-like upper curve can be positioned over the top of adjacent buildings. Helena is also a star
performer for outdoor stages and other public and community shade projects.
- Engineered as a permanent shade structure, Helena Modulars are designed for any Australian wind speed.
- Completely weather-proof, Helena models include galvanised steel cables with stainless steel fittings and a UV stabilised membrane.
- Helena has 3 or 4 perimeter columns depending on the location of structure.
- Available with a range of accessories, such as LED lighting.
An anticlastic curved shape refers to a plane curved in opposite ways in two directions.
The most notable anticlastic forms are a Western-style saddle and a famous brand of snack food!
