City Impact Church on the North Shore has recently revamped their outdoor entrance space with the addition of eight large Tulip Umbrellas from New Zealand shade supplier, Shade7. The nondenominational Christian Church has been running for over thirty years and have seen huge growth during that time, resulting in property developments along the way.
Shade7 were approached to offer an aesthetic structure primarily for sun and rain protection, which would bridge the gap between two buildings at their main entrance. The result was the installation of eight Tulip Commercial Umbrellas that would be lined up closely between the two buildings. As well as offering maximum sun protection from 98%+ of harmful UV light, these unique Tulip Umbrellas also allow water to run off through their special telescopic tube system creating a special effect as running water is visible through the clear plexiglass.
Vibrant and active, City Impact Church is continually abuzz with a variety of events and services, both day and night. In addition to the shelter from rain and sun, Shade7’s Tulip Umbrellas can have lights installed inside them emanating a special ambience outdoors during the evening. City Impact Church had purple neon lights fitted into each of the umbrellas which have resulted in a stunning and eye-catching effect at night.
Tulip Commercial Umbrellas are a simple and cost effective alternative to permanent shelter structures on commercial sites. Without the need for any building consents, installing Tulips offer a practical as well as visually stunning solution for shade and rain protection.
