Eide Industries, Inc. was contracted by R.D. Olson to help provide a facelift to various properties, the Pavilion Lodge & Descanso Beach, for the Santa Catalina Island Company in Avalon, California. This popular tourist attraction is getting more popular now with its new Zip Line through the canyon and imported sandy beaches. With all of the additional patrons, more shade was required for their remodeled lodge and shopping areas at the beach.
To keep the cost down with respect to the owner’s expectations of remodeling every 5 years, we were able to provide a solution using Polytex mesh fabric. This High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) woven mesh protects against 95% of the sun’s UV rays and is available in a variety of colors. This light weight fabric contained the right characteristics to produce the billowy sail look that the owner and architect were shooting for.
