Shade Structures

Shade Structures

Shade structures are the number one way to protect your playground, patio, car park or any other space that needs a barrier between it and the sun. Each shade strucutre is creatively and uniquely designed to look good in your space and provide the necessary protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. There are many different types of shade strucutres with the most common being Sail Shades, Hip Shades, Umbrella Shades and Cantilever Shades.
