EXTECH’s SKYSHADE 8000 is a long-spanning standing-seam canopy system that offers continuous battens that rigidly clamp over structural cellular polycarbonate glazing (CPG). SKYSHADE 8000’s ability to withstand extreme wind loads makes it suitable for areas that are hurricane prone. Its long panels also eliminate the need for horizontal interruptions in the glazing. The smooth upper surface gives SKYSHADE 8000 a contemporary look.

Encouraging creative and versatile designs, EXTECH’s new canopy system is offered with a wide range of edge detail options. CPG panels are available in a matte finish and a variety of colors. Optional coatings for the glazing panels enhance solar heat gain management and diffuse lighting without glare.
