shade structures

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.

A shade structure completed with Monotec 370 Series shade cloth will reduce exposure to UV radiation. This knitted shade cloth can be used for all types of commercial and residential shade sails and structures. It is the only shade cloth manufactured in Australia that is made with 100% round monofilament HDPE yarn which gives it tremendous strength and has an incredible 15-year warranty with 15 cool colours.
