Shade structures allowing light in and made to protect!

A shade structure is a permanent fixture built to create shade in outdoor locations. A knitted high-density polyethylene shade cloth can be used to complete outdoor shade structures to protect you from the sun. When constructed correctly they provide an area that is safer for people to be in for an extended period of time.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Installing outdoor shades in a council playground, water park, school or even at home has become an increasingly popular way to assist in the fight against this insidious disease. Shade structures protect us from UV radiation and along with other protective measures such as hats, sunscreen and wraparound sunglasses can provide maximum UV protection when outdoors.

While shade structures will protect you from the sun they also have the ability to protect people from wind, rain and even snow as well! They can also prevent playground equipment from becoming hot or faded.
