Charleston, SC – May 31, 2011 - The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina since 1842, is enjoying the cooling shade of its Shade Systems canopies at its football stadium now that another hot summer is upon us.
The Citadel had been using rented tents to provide shade over the fourth story terrace of their football stadium when they realized there would a cost savings in going with a permanent shade system. Their shade committee, comprised of Seminole Football Association alumni and citadel staff, considered various options before selecting Shade Systems to provide its high quality permanent structures with removable canopies.
One of the most important reasons the Citadel’s shade committee selected Shade Systems was for its unique Turn-N-SlideTM easy canopy removal and re-attachment system. The committee recognized that this proven and patented system offered only by Shade Systems is invaluable when a hurricane threatens. With the Turn-N-Slide, Citadel staff can quickly and easily remove their canopies and store them. Re-attachment is likewise very easy, as shown on the Turn-N-Slide instructional video.
Mr. John Carlisle, president of the Seminole Football Association, said: “We’re getting great feedback on these shades. Aesthetically, they look great and everybody loves them.” Plans are already underway to add more of them to the other side of the stadium.
