For Steel That Shields

At Future Shade we pride ourselves on our high performing selection of walkways including our galvanised steel frame structures with architectural grade PVC membrane fabric that provides effective protection from the weather all year round. Featuring rolled steel rafters, 100% UV block and a selection of roofing options such as colourbond roofing in order to complement the environment the structure is fitting into. Offering a width of 2mt or 2.5mt and a length with no limits, the steel framed walkway features a 15-year warranty and a choice of gutters as optional. Is suitable for all projects where shade and protection are vital.

An example of our steel framed walkway can be found at the Kororoit Creek Primary School. The team successfully constructed 250mt of covered waterproof walkways featuring barrel vault shades designed to shield a number of portable buildings throughout the school.
