The Playground, Shade and Surfacing Depot offers shade structures that offer 100% UVA and UVB protection as well as 100% water repellency. These shade structures come in various styles including retractable commercial umbrella structures, cantilevered shade structures and custom tension shade structures.
This unique line of shade structure product provides shade through the use of a high tensile membrane made of PVC coated polyester fabric. This membrane itself is actually classified as a roofing material due to its numerous uses to provide cover. The membrane is carefully measured, cut and welded with a high frequency welder versus stitched together as traditional shade fabric canopies are made.
These structures offer an expanse of architectural shade design opportunity, custom configurations to retrofit or create new shade opportunity and a look and feel that dramatically enhances any project, space or application. In addition, custom logos, artwork, family crest or other images can be printed into the fabric for a custom one of a kind look to your shade structure.
Although our High Tensile Membrane Shade Structures may not be the most economical way to provide shade, they certainly provide the look and benefit not offered in other forms of shade coverage.
