ShadeFX Spotlight: Steinbaugh Pavilion Rocks Small Town America

The city of Louisville Colorado, nestled in close to the larger than life Rocky Mountains, is a quaint little town with grand aspirations. This former mining community has undergone an urban revolution that successfully embraces its past while marching toward its bright future. Along the way, it has twice been named Money Magazines number one ‘best small town to live’ in America.

When visiting, locals and tourists are provided with a variety of choices, the rejuvenated downtown core boasts over 100 business services, access to a thriving art scene and lively music venues. At the center of all this action is the Steinbaugh Pavilion. According to locals, this is the best entertainment venue found anywhere in downtown Louisville. During the summer months, this outdoor space acts as center stage for the massively popular, Friday night “Louisville Downtown Street Faire”, a weekly event running from five to ten p.m – rain or shine.

To ensure that the show go on, regardless of weather, the people of Louisville and the industrious folks at Whitestone Construction Services reached out to us here at ShadeFX. Happy to keep any party going, we broke a few rules of convention to ensure that we delivered the best rain and shade solution possible.

Three colourful underside canopies, each one 26’ long by 16’ wide, were installed directly off the main pavilion. In order to maintain the integrity of the barn-like structure and the venues atmosphere, the canopy sloped at sixteen degrees, an aesthetic consideration that was also highly wind resistant. Because of the heavy Colorado winds, we also reduced the canopy drops to minimize any potential swinging of the folded fabric.

The ShadeFX install helped ensure that the Steinbaugh Pavillion continued to be the ultimate entertainment venue. Our many thanks go to the people of Louisville and Whitestone Construction Services for inviting ShadeFX to the party. Once again, our retractable canopy system has helped to keep the good times rolling by providing customers with functional sun and rain protection that boasts both style and personality.
