Sun screens with extendable arms and a patented system for reducing the wind stress. The fabric with coloured stripes is a fun way to bring pool and building together.
A place to relax and have fun with friends and family or just to soak up the sunshine becomes a favourite spot when the weather’s good. An outdoor area on the other hand can present the problem of being able to enjoy the fresh air without boiling to death. The measures for creating spaces that are sufficiently shady have found an answer in the evolution of the shading systems for outside areas and the various ways the screening systems and materials can be applied. The screening systems on the market today propose products of various types colours and different ways of moving systems. Tensostructures for spaces large and small are systems that use membranes stretched over frames where the screening takes on the role of an important architectural element in outdoor areas where the form of the screening is its fundamental character while the colour is usually a neutral shade generally white to highlight the shape. The case of the various types of sliding blinds used in environments near the swimming pool is different. Here the overriding consideration is not the shape but the colour. More playful environments can thus be created by adapting the colours and weaves of the blind (striped, neutral, patterned etc) where the relationship between the outside areas, the swimming pool and the building on which the awning is mounted becomes fundamental. Compared with a tensostucture that has its own supporting frame, blinds thus have a fundamental relationship with the building they are installed on and they are ways the building dialogues and mediates with the outside.
The GAZEBO The latest product that represents a middle way between the first two solutions is the gazebo with a wooden or wrought iron frame. It can use stretched membrane and sliding blind systems with coloured or neutral fabrics with different weaves and patterns at the same time. Structures that are usually less undulating than tensostructures, gazeboes have a relationship with buildings that is less intense than awnings installed on the said buildings assuming their own identity thanks to the screening systems used, be they stretched membranes or mobile blinds.
