Forester "standard" double-sided track
Our standard double-sided track is ideal for a quick retro-fit to attach canopies to an existing structure by mounting independently underneath existing rafters. Track placement is not critical and canopies with are typically our standard 60" or 46" widths, but custom widths are available.
Forester single-sided "strip" track
Our strip track is popular when starting from scratch if you are designing you won pergola or shade structure and want to create more of a custom look. Simply space your rafters based on the standard 60", 46" or 30" widths. Canopies can be custom-cut so they fit your specific needs. Tracks are available in white, black, beige or taupe.
Forester "under-beam-mounted" double-sided track
The "under-beam-mounted" double-sided track provides a third mounting option where there is an existing structure and it is desirable to minimize the number of tracks and canopies so they align with existing rafters. When the spacing between beams is narrow. track can be mounted to skip some beams allowing for wider canopy widths. Canopies can be custom-cut so they fit your specific needs. Tracks are available in white, black or taupe.
