Shade Systems

Shade Systems™ designs and manufactures the highest quality pre-engineered outdoor fabric shade structures, canopies, umbrellas, and awning covers. These include permanent fabric-on-frame or clear span tensioned structures designed to protect children and adults as well as property such as vehicles from exposure to the sun’s dangerous Ultra-Violet (U.V.) rays. The CoolNet™ shade fabric used on our shade systems screens up to 99% of the sun’s U.V. rays and provides a cool and shaded area for people and property outdoors.

Hexagons & Octagons

Shade Systems™ Hexagon & Octagon designs add a whimsical ‘carousel’ look to your play area or other outdoor gathering place. As with all our permanent shade products, hexagons are engineered to meet the most stringent international building codes, and are available in a variety of heights and sizes.

Multi-Level Framed ‘Sails’

Multi-level Framed ‘Sails’ go beyond even our normal ‘Sails’ for multiple layers of imaginative sun protection. They still feature stainless steel connections and hardware for long life, but additionally include a powder-coated steel framework to support an intricate arrangement of multiple layers of fabric to visually stun as well as provide cooling shade. Our Sail systems are equally attractive and functional for shade cover over spectator seating areas, picnic courts, outdoor amphitheaters, sports fields, concessions, or any other outdoor gathering area where protection is needed from the sun’s harmful U.V. rays for children and adults.

Shade Kites

Named ‘Shade Kites’ for their soaring sky-bound shapes, these imaginative fabric shade canopy designs are a clever variation of our popular square frame-supported shades. With one corner post twice the height of the other three, Shade Kites offer the design flexibility of orienting them tilted toward the sun for maximum shading and sun protection. Typical applications include poolside, by spraygrounds, or over traditional playground equipment. Shade Kites can be purchased as a single, or connected together in groups of two, three, four, or more.
