|Shade Systems announces 'Sail' system for Village of Key Biscayne|
Ocala, Florida - November 2, 2009 - Shade Systems is proud to announce it has provided one of its innovative 'Sail' systems for the Village of Key Biscayne, located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Key Biscayne, located via causeway off downtown Miami, is one of the most upscale communities in Miami-Dade.
Municipal staff selected Shade Systems for this high-profile project at Village Green, Key Biscayne's flagship park located right on the main thoroughfare, based on several criteria. These included Shade Systems' extensive experience designing and constructing similar projects as well as our proven track record in providing 'Sail' systems designed to make it easy for park staff to remove and then re-attach their canopies in the event of hurricane. Village of Key Biscayne staff noted Shade Systems products have been in use by neighboring municipalities for years and have a proven track record through hurricanes Katrina and Wilma.
The alternating Forest Green and Desert Sand 'Sail' canopies provide children and adults much-needed cooling shade and protection from the sun's dangerous U.V. rays, while their whimsical "pinwheel" design adds an aesthetically-pleasing skyline to the popular playground.
Todd Hofferberth, Director of Parks and Recreation for the Village of Key Biscayne, explained that the shading project arose in response to the concerns of citizens for their children's health and welfare. The hot midday sun made it virtually impossible to enjoy the playground on most days, and parents were concerned about children being exposed to the sun's harmful U.V. rays while playing outdoors. Mr. Hofferberth was quoted as saying: "Everyone is very pleased with the beautiful Sail design created by Shade Systems, and relieved at how cool and comfortable it is now under the canopies. And the whole Shade Systems team, including the installation crew, was a pleasure to work with."
