Our Playground Shade Products

Affordable Shade Structures For Playgrounds & Parks

We offer a wide range of pre-engineered and custom shade products for playgrounds, parks, and other outdoor areas. Rather than being anchored to a wall, as with patio shades or awnings, playground covers are solid, freestanding structures designed to give the best level of cover and protection. Typically, playground shade covers can be either a solid canopy or a sail design. We can also build shade covers entirely from aluminum for a sturdier structure that can cover a larger space.

Playground Shade Cover Materials & Designs

Depending on the size and type of playground you want to shade, and how much space you’d like to cover, there are a few options that you can choose from. Our experts will review your property and can provide recommendations on what will work best.

One of the most popular options is a solid canopy stretched over a metal frame, which provides complete coverage of an area. Triangular sail designs are also popular because they allow for various configurations, providing your playground with a mix of sun and shade. 

Aluminum is also a popular material when building fixed shade structures. These materials are strong and can withstand the South Florida elements, ensuring they will last for decades.

Frequently Asked Questions About Playground Shade Covers

Looking for more information on playground covers? Here are the answers to the most common questions our clients ask.

How Do You Shade a Playground?

Depending on the playground size, you can add a shade to cover the whole area, smaller zones of related equipment, or individual pieces such as swings, slides, and climbers. When designing your playground cover, we can work with you to find the most effective and affordable combination.

Do Shade Covers Keep a Playground Cool?

Shade covers are great for cooling down playgrounds during the summer months. There are various options that will provide varying levels of protection from the sun so that you can balance the perfect amount of shade and sun for your space.

How Do Shade Covers Over Playgrounds Help?

In a climate like South Florida’s, playground shade covers are essential for four important reasons:

  • They help protect children’s skin against harmful UV rays and sunburn.
  • They lower temperatures to keep children safer in longer play sessions without overheating.
  • They keep playground equipment cooler to avoid the risk of burning.
  • They protect your play equipment against fading and cracking in strong direct sunlight, extending its useful life.

Whether you’re a parent wanting to protect your children’s health or a business owner wanting to provide a safe environment for your younger customers, playground shade covers are the ideal solution.

Do Shade Sails Keep Rain Out?

Shade sail materials are available in two main types: waterproof fabrics that keep out light-to-moderate rain and breathable fabrics that help keep the air underneath the shade cooler.

What Are Playground Shades Made Of?

Most playground shade covers are made with a waterproof or breathable fabric roof, supported by metal posts for sturdiness. However, in some circumstances, a solid metal canopy can provide a greater level of protection, although at a higher cost.
