Customer Success

“I love the amount of sunlight that you still get through the roof. It’s kind of like being outside all the time but still having shade. It stays pretty warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. It͛s very quiet inside. When you get rain or hail or wind, there’s no banging or clanging, no sharp or rough sounds. The acoustics are good. It’s fresh and dry and clean. You don’t ever have condensation dripping off the roof. It’s a controlled environment, yet you still get the benefit of the daylight coming in.”

Joel Marr

“No matter how hot it was in the summer, it was always 20 degrees cooler under the canopy. In the winter, the light and moving air allow the space to warm up in the morning, unlike an enclosed arena.”
