Specialty Fabrics Review August 2021 - 30

This shade sail was created in 2020 by
SHADE Industries in Tucson, Ariz., to
cover an outdoor lunchroom at a Tucson
middle school. The 1,848-square-foot
sail, made of Polyfab Architec 400®

Fish Grotto, on the downtown San
Diego waterfront, " she explains. " The
new space really needed to impress
everyone, because they were all
watching to see what was going to
replace this icon, whether it was going
to be worthy. "
The project's architect designed
Every time a new

it, they want one for

restaurant, or for the

a stunning geodesic dome that
maintained an open and unobstructed
view of both the San Diego Bay and
the downtown skyline, but a shade
sail would be required to keep the
sun from beating down on the
restaurant's customers.
" We had to deal with the fact that
this dome was a really unique shape, "
DuBroy says. " The top of the dome
has this curve that is sort of oval but
not quite, not exactly a perfect shape.
There were a lot of conversations about
how many attachments were going
to be used and how they would be
attached. It took a lot of measurements
to get it right. "
But it wasn't until the planning
was well along that the project's
most distinctive element was added.
" During one of our planning sessions,
30 SPECIALTY FABRICS REVIEW / August 2021
our head of sales, Gregg Burrows,
suggested putting the restaurant's
logo on the shade sail. The restaurant
loved the idea. "
It's an intricate logo, so a lot of the
planning revolved around the size,
direction of the lettering, and whether
the pelican should face the harbor or
the downtown, according to DuBroy.
" But the real issue was that shade
sails stretch, of course, and each fabric
stretches in a little different way, " she
says. " So you can't screenprint on the
shade sail fabric because it will distort
the image. You have to cut out a spot
from the shade sail and then sew the
graphic in with different fabric. "
Even that was no challenge
compared to actually installing the
fabric, DuBroy says, because it had
to be done while the restaurant was
being completed. " We had to find the
largest boom lift in the U.S., 150 feet
tall, so it could reach the bay side of the
structure from the boardwalk. It was
something. Even with all the design,
attachment and logistical challenges,
the end result is a San Diego icon for
the next 50 years. "
