Sun Shades for Playgrounds

Commercial sun shades provide protection from the sun for children while they play. These outdoor shade structures can be made with hard roofing materials, like composite shingles or tin, but there are many affordable options made of fabrics that reflect or absorb sun radiation, such as canvas or mesh. A shade structure can be freestanding or attached to existing structures such as fences or buildings.

Playground Shade Structures

If you’re in a particularly sunny area, the playground shade expands over the top of your playground equipment and will keep kids having fun while remaining cool and comfortable. The health benefits from playground equipment shade structures can be fairly obvious: they can help protect children from sunburn and skin cancer; and they keep playground equipment cool to the touch; and they can allow children to extend their playtime on hot summer days

Just how Big?

When considering one of our fabric shade structures, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you will need to decide what type of sun shade is right for your needs. Shapes and sizes are the obvious questions, but particularly important is the entry and peak height, if you’re attempting to shade a playground.

Angle of the Sun

You will definitely want to consider the time of day when the playground will be in use the most.  That way, commercial shade structures can be aligned with the need to provide the most shade.
