Strip track ShadeTree shade canopy system
  enhances the function
& architectural beauty
of your arbor or pergola

Now you can mount your canopy tracks directly between beams to create a wood structure that provides shade as well as architectural interest. As an alternative to our standard aluminum Forester model tracks, which are two-sided and accommodate two canopies, ShadeTree® Canopies can be mounted between beams using our new "striptrack" system as shown in figure #1. The canopies are available in three fabric widths: 60", 46" or 30"; when calculating the spacing between your decorative beams, allow 5' 3 1/2" for 60" canopies, 4' 1 3/4" for 46" canopies or 33 1/8" for 30" canopies.

Strip-Track canopy systems are the same price as the Forester model, which is shown in the Forester pricing section.
