Why Use DSA Pre-Approved Shade Structures?

DSA Shade

Benefit of Approved Fabricators

Working with an approved fabricator offers the significant advantage of bypassing specific Material Control/Quality Control inspections, leading to expedited project timelines.

Streamlined Design Process

The design process benefits immensely from the utilization of pre-approved shade designs, allowing for a seamless integration into site-specific construction projects before their submission.

Available Shade Structure Designs

The selection of shade structure designs includes the Center Post Umbrella, the Cantilever Umbrella, and the Hip Shade, offering versatile options for project needs.

Advantage of Pre-Approved Designs

Opting for pre-approved shade structure designs accelerates the approval and construction phases, as these designs meet certain predefined standards and inspections, facilitating a smoother project integration.

Zoom's recent projects

Zoom Recreation has been busy designing and installing commercial playground equipment, shade structures, and amenities throughout California and Arizona. The Zoom team transforms outdoor recreation areas by incorporating modern, creative, and safe elements into playground designs.

All Projects

Superior Shades, the second largest manufacturer in the US.

We understand that purchasing commercial shade structures that comply with all California safety standards can be a difficult task to navigate. That’s why we work with Superior Shade, a certified fabricator for the City of Los Angeles (LADBS) and California Division of the State Architect (DSA). With a DSA approved shade structure, California public schools, colleges, and other state-owned facilities can rest assured knowing the shade structures provided by Zoom Recreation are precheck approved.
