Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City Zoo of Missouri called on Superior Shade to bring their Sea Lion exhibit into compliance with the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Adequate shading was needed in order to give their sea lions a safe and livable exhibit to thrive in. This exhibit is unique in its own way. The structure needed to be high off the ground, while essentially dangling above the enclosure without poles in the center point.
The Kansas City Zoo and Superior Shade created a unique shade solution. The custom shade structure uses high-tension cabling spanning more than 95' in diameter. Its web-like structure allowed for maximum shading and structural stability. Superior Shade enjoys the challenge of making innovative solutions to fit the needs of our clients.
