Want a play space that's cooler than the rest? Add some shade! Not only do shade structures add a unique look to your playground, they also keep it cool and comfortable for park guests.
Cunningham Recreation offers shade products that block up to 97% of the sun's harmful UV rays to help keep the playground equipment -- and the hands that use it -- cool. Our shade also cools the covered area by up to 25º (14ºC) making it more enjoyable for children and families.
• Cover the entire play structure with our Shade Sails or Hip Ends in square, rectangle or hexagon shapes.
• Integrate a shade canopy into the posts of your GameTime playground.
• Use umbrellas or cantilevers to protect musical play areas, climbers, or other independent play areas.
• Bench canopies give you an economical option to add shade to your playground when you have a limited budget.
Whether you are designing a new playground or adding shade to an existing playground, we can help you optimize your shade options.
