Sunshine is the foundation of the best days. There’s something about the feeling of stepping outside on a sunny day that never gets old, no matter your age. But of course, sunlight comes with its downsides, causing excessive heat, hot surfaces, and safety concerns. Is your recreational area a fun place to be year-round? Parks, schools, and communities can provide relief and create a perfect environment regardless of high temperatures. Shade structures installed by professional recreational equipment suppliers are a bright addition to any West Coast play area, including those in Phoenix.
According to the CDC, “The sun’s rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes.” Direct sunlight, while refreshing on a nice day, can be harmful to anyone visiting your play area. Additionally, direct sunlight can make an area feel 10 to 15 degrees hotter than it actually is. This increases the chance for a heat-related accident or injury to occur.
Yes, the sun is beyond anyone’s control. Also, your visitors should be responsible by using sunscreen, wearing appropriate clothing, staying hydrated, and so on.
You want your visitors to be as comfortable and safe as possible, especially the little ones running around the playground. By providing shade, your recreational area will be enjoyable throughout all hours of the day.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to adding shade to your play area.

“We recently worked with Dan Smith and team for the addition of a Hip Shade Cover at one of our pool facilities. They were responsive with their correspondence, had competitive pricing, and gave updates throughout the construction of the project.”
