When it comes to providing shade solutions for outdoor spaces, shade structures are a popular choice. Two standard types of shade structures offered by Brisbane Shade & Sails are the Hip & Ridge Shade Structure and the Curved Roof Shade Structure. In this blog post, we will explore the differences between these two types of shade structures to help you make an informed decision when choosing the best option for your needs.
What Is The Hip & Ridge Shade Structure?
The Hip & Ridge Shade Structure is a steel-framed structure with posts, rafters, and a ridge beam. It is covered with either a shade or PVC-tensioned canopy. These structures are commonly found in learning institutions, childcare facilities, and over play equipment in council parks where a lot of height is required. They are also ideal for providing excellent cover for boats or caravans.
What Is The Curved Roof Shade Structure?
The Curved Roof Shade Structure, on the other hand, is mainly used as an alternative to a hard roof carport. It can be manufactured as a single cantilever frame or a double cantilever frame. These structures are ideal for a boutique car park shade at your home or business. They can be manufactured to any reasonable size and can be covered with a shade or waterproof vinyl canopy.
So What Is The Difference?
One of the main differences between these two types of shade structures is the design. The Hip & Ridge Shade Structure has a more traditional look, with a peaked roof and straight lines. This type of structure is perfect for more formal settings, such as schools or commercial buildings.
The Curved Roof Shade Structure has a more modern look, with a curved roof and sleek lines. This type of structure is perfect for more contemporary settings, such as car parks or trendy restaurants.
Another difference between these two types of shade structures is the level of coverage they provide. The Hip & Ridge Shade Structure offers more height and coverage, making it perfect for larger areas or outdoor spaces that require a lot of shade. On the other hand, the Curved Roof Shade Structure is better suited for smaller areas or spaces that require less coverage.
