Portable shade canopies are great for the beach, tailgating and other outdoor gatherings, but many canopies are heavy and awkward to store, fade and fall apart. High-end canopies from Tsuga, Boone, N.C., fabricated of lightweight WeatherMax LT from Safety Components, combine extreme durability with a stylish appearance to make time spent outdoors even more enjoyable and trouble-free. Because Tsuga canopies don’t rust and are easily repaired, they don’t end up in landfills and are 100 percent recyclable.
“At six to eight pounds and only two pieces out of the bag, our patented canopies can be set up by two people in two minutes,” says Tsuga owner Jimi Combs. “Unlike other canopies that break after a single season, ours are engineered to last and when secured properly, can withstand winds up to 50 mph.”
Tsuga’s sun-shade solution can be used freestanding or easily attached to a vehicle with Velcro™. WeatherMax LT doesn’t fade, is water resistant and provides complete UV protection, especially important for small children, the elderly and lifeguards. Durable fabric is lightweight but stable, and available in a rich palette of colors for customers.
