Custom Shade Sails and Shade Structures For Playgrounds & Sandpits

Never is sun shade more critical than it is in protected young children against harmful ultraviolet radiation. It takes as little as 15 minutes in the sun to get burnt, which is why even a little sun time can be too much. However, sunshine is essential. So what do you do? The solution is to provide sun protection over areas such as playgrounds and sandpits that attract children.

The Global Shade Process

With Global Shade, the process of getting a custom shade sail or custom shade structure, such as a canopy or tension membrane, installed over a playground or sandpit, commercial or residential, is straightforward.

Start the process by contacting the team at Global Shade with your shade sail/shade structure requirements. We will get one of our local installers to visit your location and assess the outdoor area. They will discuss the design options and recommend whether shade sails or another shade structure is best suited to cover the playground or sandpit area.

Our local installers will take area measurements and provide a no-obligation quote outlining all costs. If you accept the quote, the design of the fabric component is sent to Global Shade to be manufactured, which is usually a 10-12 day turnaround.

The installers then construct and install the shade sails/shade structure to complete the process.


Protecting children as they play on a playground or in a sandpit is made easy thanks to Global Shade’s shade covers for playgrounds and sandpits. We custom manufacture shade covers that provide as much as 99% UV protection or 100% Water and UV protection for any playground or sandpit area.
