Here are 11 venues that used ShadeFX to make sure the weather forecast didn’t interrupt that special day.

Round Hill Pines Beach Resort

Round Hill Pines Beach Resort
Round Hill Pines Beach Resort in Zephyr Cove, Nevada offers an authentic Lake Tahoe experience with panoramic views of the surrounding alpine lake and Sierra Nevada Mountains. The resort underwent an upgrade to enhance the guest experience without disrupting the surrounding landscape. ShadeFX worked alongside Round Hill Pines’ architect to design a hollow steel structure for the new 3,000 sq. ft. facility which overlooks the beach and includes new restrooms, retail space, commercial kitchen and an open-air pavilion equipped with retractable shades. ShadeFX manufactured and installed four motorized canopies and rain gutters using Ferrari Concrete fabric to provide nearly 1,500 sq. ft. of sun and rain protection.

The Wharf Manitowoc

The redesign includes an almost 3,500 sq. ft. outdoor area covered by eight 24’x18’ motorized retractable roofs with gutters using waterproof and fire-retardant Ferrari Boulder fabric. The roofs can be extended or retracted at a push of a button for full protection or open skies regardless of weather conditions.
