Why Use Playground Shade Structures?

Play shades offer many advantages for commercial playgrounds. These innovative structures benefit children, adults, and communities alike.

Sun Protection

Playground shades are ideal for shielding children from the sun. These protective fabric structures keep kids shaded from ultraviolet (UV) rays, minimizing the risk of sunburn and resulting skin infections. Play shades also prevent play surfaces from heating up, keeping playground equipment cool to the touch and preventing kids from burning themselves.

Shades also prevent children from overheating, enabling them to play for longer without discomfort or heat-related illnesses like muscle cramps, dizziness, and exhaustion. In fact, areas protected by play shades can be up to 20 degrees cooler than unshaded spaces.

All-Day Play

With a playground shade structure on your commercial property, kids can enjoy hours of continuous play without interference from the elements. Play shades protect against rain, wind, dust, sleet, and even snow, enabling children to play uninterrupted for as long as they please. Play shades also promote a more comfortable play space than unshaded playgrounds, encouraging kids to stay outside longer.

Architectural Aesthetic

When your playground is covered by a play shade, your equipment is less likely to experience fading, cracking, and warping from sun exposure. This means playground shades promote longer equipment life and keep your playground looking bright and inviting. You can also purchase playground shade structures in numerous styles and colors to beautify and individualize your outdoor space.
