Herculite’s Canopy FS awning fabric offers rain protection for football fans at Super Bowl XLI

Back to Media Room

MIAMI GARDENS, FLORIDA (February 4, 2007)  The awning canopies at Dolphin Stadium typically provide year round sun protection for sports fans but that was not the case at Super Bowl XLI.    

Rain fell over South Florida during the game.  Prince even played his hit song, “Purple Rain” at halftime.  And the Indianapolis Colts were victorious over the Chicago Bears in a super game that had its share of weather related turnovers.  But it was the Awning Canopies that kept the fans dry while they made their entrance and exit from the stadium.

In 2006, Paradise Canvas of Hollywood Florida earned the contract to build the four entrance canopies that cover the primary escalators to the stadium as well as several smaller structures including those at the Miami Dolphin Training Center in Davie, Florida.

 The fabric chosen was Canopy FS 120 Turquoise by Herculite Products Inc.  Known for exceptional durability, this 8-year backlit awning fabric is a perfect color match for the Miami Dolphins.  During nighttime at Super Bowl XLI, the canopies illuminated brightly, adding an exciting design element for fans to enjoy while entering the building or tailgating outside.
