Cantilever Shade Structures

Looking for a shade structure without a lot of columns? Cantilever shades have offset columns, leaving one side of the shade without columns. This style of commercial shade is ideal for walkways, bus stop seating, bleachers, drive-thrus, car parking, and more.

Top Reasons to Buy a Cantilever Shade

If these reasons solve your biggest shade pain points, then a cantilever style shade may just be right for your outdoor space.

When you need shade above a space but the amount of posts on a traditional hip shade would make it impossible to install, consider opting for a cantilever shade structure. With posts only on one side, you’ll be free of columns on the other. With posts at the rear of the shade structure, shading areas such as walkways, bus stop seating, bleachers, and carports are easily achievable.

If you’re shading bleachers, for example, four columns would block the views of the fans. With the columns behind the bleacher, fans can get the benefit of shade without the unwanted obstructions. Cantilever shades also work well for pool side seating and bus stop shelters.

Cantilever shade structures can be linked together to cover any length of space. This is especially helpful for car parking, walkways, bleachers.
