After thoroughly researching the genre we came up with a new approach to pier design.
Now after 20 years years and thousands of piers in place around the world, our happy owners agree that we have devised an innovative pier design that is attractive, highly functional and affordable. Owners love our piers. And do great work on them! Photos taken on SkyShed Piers grace the pages and covers of magazines, photo contests, books, APODs, websites, and more. Well known astrophotographers utilize SkyShed Piers.
