When guests board a Hornblower Niagara cruise for a tour of one of the seven forgotten natural wonders of the world, Birdair’s two sail-shaped canopies will be the first vision to greet them.

Birdair's scope of work included design, fabrication, supply and installation of two new PTFE membrane sail canopies, totaling 3,600 square feet. The canopies are located at the plaza, welcoming customers looking to buy tickets for the boat tour. Intended to provide shade and protection from the weather, the design of the PTFE sail-shaped canopies was influenced by the boating and nautical experience of being on the river in the Niagara Gorge.

The ticketing plaza was designed by Chapman Murray Associates Architects, Inc. with engineering firm, Urban & Environmental Management, Inc. and general contractor Hornblower Canada Co..  Hornblower tapped Birdair for their design and installation expertise as well as their unique PTFE membrane canopies. PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, is a Teflon®-coated woven fiberglass membrane that is extremely durable and weather resistant. The PTFE fiberglass membrane canopies will provide guests with much-needed comfort and protection from the elements.
