DSA-Approved SMART CANOPIES™

Competitively priced permanent steel covers that are value engineered for your growing needs.

Our DSA-approved Smart Canopies are all-steel shade structures designed specifically to meet the needs of California schools. Smart Canopies are available in sizes from 400 to 10,000 square feet and will meet the seismic, soils, and wind load requirements of almost any California School. In cases of extreme seismic, wind, or snow loads, a custom structure can be engineered to meet the DSA’s requirements.

Smart Canopies are at their most efficient when used in 9’ X 9’ Modules.  The 9’ X 9’ module will accommodate a standard school table including access. For example, 44’ X 18’ Smart Canopy is made up of 10 9’ X 9’ modules and so will comfortably cover 10 standard lunch tables. Each table will seat 6-10 students depending on grade level. Thus, a 44’ X 18’ Smart Canopy will cover 60-100 students.

All-steel construction means big savings on maintenance. Steel shelters are vandal proof and are built using decking and trim with a baked enamel finish, galvanized framing and hardware, and tube steel columns.

M Bar C’s years of experience with the DSA mean jobs go smoothly and are completed on time with the documentation required to close them out. M Bar C’s focus on customer service and value means the best value in permanent shade.
