Shade Sails & Structures for Outdoor Activity Areas

November 17th, 2021 · Published to Applications, Shade Sails, Shade Solutions by Steve Lewis

Providing an activity area for children to play in comes with many responsibilities. It needs to be safe to prevent injury. It also needs to provide adequate sun shade to avoid sunburn.

Early childhood education and care services should have a comprehensive sun protection policy that outlines the commitment to sun protection and the responsibilities of teachers, parents and families, and children.

If you run a school holiday camp, kids play venue, after school care facility, leisure facility, early childhood education centre, or you’re simply a parent looking to provide sun protection for their child; investing in shade sails and structures for outdoor activities areas may be the best decision you’ll ever make.

Shade Cloth and Waterproof Shade Covers for Outdoor Activity Areas

While sun shade is paramount for outdoor activity areas, it’s also beneficial to have an outdoor activity area that allows children to play in wet conditions. As such, we offer not only quality sun shade solutions but all-weather waterproof solutions as well.

Our shade cloth and waterproof shade covers are ideal for outdoor activity areas such as those at kids play venues, after school care facilities, leisure facilities, early childhood education centres, and backyards.

We offer customers their choice of fabric between Rainbow Z16, Rainbow Xtreme 32, Polyfab Parasol, Commercial 95, Alnet Extrablock and Monotec 370 series for shade cloth solutions and  Ferrari 502, Polyplan 680, and Valmex 580S for waterproof solutions. Each fabric offers a different set of colour options, and you’re sure to find one to complement your space.
