Shade keeps your playground more comfortable by keeping temperatures lower in the warmer weather, and helps ensure that play equipment stays cooler to the touch. With high-quality shade structures, there is less direct sunlight on kids, allowing them to play longer and reducing the risk of sunburns.
The right fabric structure can block up to 96% of harmful UV rays, and can make your playground up to 20 degrees cooler year-round, allowing for longer play. Shade can also make your playground more inclusive—some children and adults have sun allergies, and others are more susceptible to sun poisoning and overheating due to certain medications. These medications are commonly used by children who have epilepsy, cerebral palsy, and autism. Children with these conditions might be unable to go to a playground unless there’s adequate shade to protect them.
