The top deck of this parking garage near Palm Springs utilizes Parasol Commercial Grade Shadecloth from Polyfab USA to help keep cars cool and protected from the desert sun and UV. This is our Beach Sand color–but you might notice that a portion of the shades in one corner look a slightly lighter color…

That’s because recently someone set the adjoining palm trees on fire ­čś▓. The fire department poured water under pressure onto the palms, which caused flaming embers to rain onto the existing top floor shades! Luckily, while the fabric didn’t catch fire–Parasol meets NFPA-701 and ASTM E-84 Class 1 or A rating–the embers did burn holes in the fabric. Consequently, the parking garage owner had all the “holey” shades replaced with new Parasol fabric, and was very happy the shade fabric didn’t contribute to the fire damage!

Parasol is available in 19 colors, is 325 gsm/9.6 oz per square yard weight, 3.0 meters/9.8 feet wide and comes put-up on 50 meter/55 yard rolls. Ask your local Polyfab USA distributor for a sample card and pricing!
