Free From Awkward Posts!
Modiform are designing more and more of these beautiful outdoor structures that are cantilevered and free from inconvenient and unnecessary posts. The simple design of a cantilevered leg, engineered for stability and the roof, crafted to handle Australia’s climate like no other.
The main advantages of cantilevering the shade structure is that by building out from each end enables construction to be done with little disruption to what it covers. The span can be greater than that of a simple beam, because a beam can be added to the cantilever arm.
