The architectural firm MSTSD, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia required a 51-foot diameter by 25-foot high mall entrance cover which doubled as an entertainment pavilion for social events and promotions. The protective dome canopy also had to compliment the mall’s coastal and marshland theme for both day and night use.

Eide Industries, Inc. was able to accommodate the design and fabrication requirements for the new Coastal Grand Mall (also known as the Mall of South Carolina) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The white powder coat painted canopy frame is engineered to withstand 150 MPH Exposure “D” Wind Loads. The fabric cover is made with 9.25oz Sunbrella Firesist® 8604 Natural fabric color with Tenara® thread. The edges of the fabric cover are tensioned with 20,000 pound webbing attached to threaded adjustable steel tension plates.
