At the Alisios Shopping Center in Gran Canaria, a product from our Textile Architecture area has been installed with another from our Outdoor Solutions range. 25 printed awnings of the Hercules model have been installed in the complex, along with 3 structures tensioned with cable mesh for the purpose of protecting the shops and customers from the sun.
The Hercules awning is one of the largest in the IASO collection. It is designed to be able to cover up to 70 m2, although in this case different dimensions have been used depending on the space to cover in each establishment. The largest covers a surface area of 12 x 6m. The characteristics of the Hercules model make it the most suitable for the hotel and restaurant trade because it is strong and resistant thanks to its brackets, profiles and double-chained arms.
In addition, three circular structures under tension were installed to protect customers walking along the shopping centre passageway from the sun. The cover of each of them is made of stainless steel cable mesh and canvases fixed with springs. The main benefit of these types of structure is that they possess their own technology based on the behaviour of the material. The systematic use of computer programs achieves different shapes that condition their final appearance, which is the way the projects are differentiated.
The Alisios Shopping Centre now enjoys better sun protection so that its establishments have more shade and the customers can walk around the complex in greater comfort.
