These square and rectangle playground shades offer robust strength and sun protection on your organization’s playground. They also keep temperatures down by creating areas of shade. Our shades are rated to industrial strength, for winds up to 80 mph. The steel structures are rated up to 150 mph. On every shade, the fabric can be removed for winter storage using a patented easy, quick-release system. Our square and rectangle shades are available in two designs with multiple posts: hip roof models (with posts at each corner) and cantilevered models (with posts only on one side of the shade). We also offer single-post umbrella shades.
