At the Market

Farmers markets bring community together, providing entertainment and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Markets also promote local shopping and support small businesses. When a permanent structure is installed, vendors can move their shops outdoors to a more open environment without the hassle of individual tents, while increasing attendance and revenue potential. Electrical access can also be provided within the columns for easy access. Poligon structures create a defined space that becomes an identifiable part of the community.

Mission Point Resort is located at the southeast point of Mackinac Island in the Straights of Mackinac between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.

Made in the Shade

Monotec 370 is uniquely engineered using only 100% round monofilament yarns and is recognized as the strongest shade cloth available in the industry today. Developed as an “install and forget” shade cloth, Monotec 370 has increased stability and retains permanent shape and design to allow for consistent protection from the elements. Due to the positive memory in round monofilament yarn, shade sails made from Monotec 370 will not stretch, loosen or sag in high-wind areas.
