Hurricane Katrina’s destructive path along the Gulf Coast took a toll on the City of Lake Charles, La., but a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency helped restore city parks. Shade Systems Inc., Ocala, Fla., a manufacturer of outdoor shade structures, put wind in the sails of the new recreation areas with visually uplifting Shade Sails at seven Lake Charles parks.
Shade Sails feature durable CoolNet™ fabric that blocks 99 percent of UV radiation, protecting children while providing aesthetic appeal. The structures include stainless steel one-point connections and concealed tension cables, and Shade Systems provides a 10-year warranty. For more information, visit www.shadesystemsinc.com.
