Chapman University selected a PTFE Canopy system to cover its athletic field grandstand seating area. The goal was to provide sun and weather protection for the fans and provide a more user-friendly experience. ETS designed, engineered, and fabricated the Steel and the PTFE Membrane system as a turnkey package to the university. Installation took about 8 weeks to complete.
