How to turn a rain-swept rooftop carpark into an inviting, all-weather parking destination for shoppers? This problem can be addressed swiftly and economically without the need for structural engineers or heavy construction.

Taiyo Membrane Corporation designs and installs lightweight, carpark shelter systems for areas of all sizes and layouts, says project director Ray White.

"The Rhodes Waterside project shown here was a custom design, but we also have pre-designed carpark solutions that can be tailored to individual needs," says White. "In this instance, 100% waterproof coverage was needed, but some projects only require shelter from the sun."

As well as protecting cars, the system offers covered pedestrian access to retail spaces another draw card for shoppers. And besides protection from the elements, the distinctive canopies provide a strong aesthetic presence day and night.

"At night, backlighting turns the canopies into a glowing landmark feature," he says. "During the day, the gracefully curved canopies admit high levels of natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting."

Low maintenance and resilient, the canopies are suitable for projects ranging from large scale retail and commercial developments to public car parks.
