Covering protects customers from the elements

January 1st, 2008 / By: / Exteriors

Commercial Industrial Delta S.A. | Lima, Peru

This covering, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the tensile structures from 930-2,790m2 (10,000-30,000 sq. ft.) category of the 2007 International Achievement Awards, extends over three corridors and four squares in a shopping center in Lima, Peru, to protect customers in the corridors and shops against rain, UV rays, strong winds and dust. The carrying structure is a tri-articulated triangular porch resting diagonally over each corridor’s module on the first-floor roof. Four vertical poles hold the 5m-diameter rings and support the carrying structure, which is designed to be easily moved after the building is enlarged.
