Solar Car Park Structures – Leading The Car Park Shade Industry Through Service Excellence & Product Innovation
Looking for the latest in Car Park shade design, have you heard about the latest car park solar structures? Shade and Membrane Structures Australia (SMSA) have been working hard to be at the forefront of a new form of car park shading option across Australia and that is Solar. Solar Shade Structures are perfect for many shopping centres and larger commercial areas. They have the most valuable commodity available to them which is underutilized, SPACE. Whilst a car park shading option using tensile membrane or shade cloth does offer a practical and the most efficient way to offer comfort to your customer base and potentially offer that extra edge over local competition who may not have that same level of service, we also feel that the areas could be put to better use and create medium to long term cost savings in the process.
Car park solar shading is huge throughout Europe and is gaining traction in other parts of the globe like the US and Asia. We feel it is only a matter of time before large commercial organization’s in Australia take advantage of both the space and the sun available in this country to not only reduce costs but to be more beneficial to our environment, several large scale projects have already been completed and there are many more in the pipeline. And whilst the initial costs of a car park solar shading option can more expensive than its shade material cousin in the short term, with the tariff’s available and the energy savings on hand, this initial investment is quickly turned around into a money saving / making option. Being a commercial design and construction firm, we team up with leading solar specialists around the country for a complete turnkey solar solution for your commercial area.
Some example concepts of solar car park shading projects on the international scene are:
