Shades & Shelters
There are many benefits of incorporating shade into parts of your play environment. Heat from the sun can be a concern, but by shading your playground children will be able to play longer, allowing them to have more fun while staying active. Shade structures typically keep spaces about 20 degrees cooler. Our shade fabric is designed to provide UV protection and is rated for coastal winds.

Playground injuries can come from children touching over-heated playground structure surfaces and shading your play area will help prevent children from getting burns. Consider that one bad sunburn could increase a child’s risk of getting skin cancer later in life. When you add a UV-protective shade to your playground, kids can stay active outside while being protected from harmful UV rays. In addition to cooling the playground, shade structures will actually increase the life of the play equipment by protecting it against fading and cracking that sun exposure may cause over time. You may want to cover an entire play structure or use the modular shade options to integrate a canopy into the posts of your playground. We offer many sizes and fabric colors to match your play environment!

You may want to cover an entire play structure or use the modular shade options to integrate a canopy into the posts of your playground. We offer many sizes and fabric colors to match your play environment! There are other options for shade including swing set canopies, umbrellas or cantilevers to protect musical play areas, climbers, or other independent play areas, and bench canopies that attach perfectly on the back of any 6-foot standard in-ground or surface mount bench. These economical options offer some respite from the sun and are a great way to add playground shade!
