Should I specify Spaceshade Max or Spaceshade Lux?
This depends on the size of canopy required. You can use either the Lux or the Max for unsupported projections of up to 4.3m. For projections over 4.3m and up to 6m you will need to specify the Max. The Max is also able to achieve up to 7m spans between posts (the Lux can achieve up to 5m) which may also determine your choice of product.
Do I need Freestanding, Wall Mounted or Apex?
Wall-Mounted canopies are fixed to the wall of the building (as per the name) and are not self-supporting. When specifying a wall-mounted canopy, it is important to ensure that the wall supporting the structure has adequate fixing grounds in place, for example a steel beam to fix directly to, or solid masonry.
Freestanding canopies are entirely self-supporting and are the most popular choice to specify.
Apex canopies are self-supporting with an apex-style roof. Depending on the size they may or may not have central support posts.
Are the drawings available in formats other than Revit?
We only offer interactive BIM models in Revit as this is what the majority of architects use. However, CAD files are also available to download here for importing into your drawing.
