Why Buy Commercial Outdoor Shade Structures?

Commercial sun shades can be an afterthought for many parks and playgrounds, but they should really be at the forefront of any design process, especially in Texas and other parts of the country where summers get very hot. Quality commercial shade structures offer many benefits for your outdoor recreational space, including:


Playground and park equipment can get hot on warm days, and you don’t want small hands to burn. Playground shade structures protect kids from the sun while they play and keep the equipment from getting as hot. And let’s not forget that outdoor shade structures aren’t just for playgrounds! Adding large outdoor shade structures over benches and picnic tables can help keep families and caregivers cool as well. Cantilever shade structures are perfect over outdoor dining areas, swimming pools, restaurants or any another sunny site in need of a little sun protection.

Increased playtime and usability

No one can play in the hot sun indefinitely. Fabric shade structures can reduce the heat in an outdoor recreation area, making it possible for children and caregivers to stay longer.


With a wide variety of color options, design styles and sizes, playground equipment shade structures from Adventure Playground Systems let you express your creativity and select commercial sun shades that are perfectly matched to your brand.

Return on investment

Commercial shade sails and structures protect your playground and park equipment from fading, excessive heat and sun damage. Reduced exposure to these harsh elements will help extend the life of your outdoor equipment and increase the value of your park or play space.
