The Importance of Shade Structures at Playgrounds

Playgrounds are where children expand their social capacities and illuminate their minds with fun-filled events and activities. However, the concern of most parents – apart from biting insects – is harmful UV rays beating down on their loved ones. The excessive sun is notorious for causing sunburn, as well as skin rash, spots, and even worse. With this in mind, Anchor Industries Inc features a fine line of commercial shade for all types of outdoor gatherings and events. This includes family picnics and national day out functions, along with team-building events and corporate product launches.

Permanent Umbrellas for Outdoor Gatherings

Staying in the shade is important for preventing sunburn and UV rays. At Anchor, we showcase FUNbrellas that keep you and yours cool and comfortable for any type of outdoor event. These durable commercial shade structures are cost-effective alternatives to large gazebos and pavilions. Similarly, they are specifically designed for areas where natural shade is not available. Whether for playgrounds, outdoor cafes, or seating areas in parks and recreational areas – these sturdy units are made from aluminum and painted steel frames. You also have access to a rainbow of colors and fabric options, as well as breathable mesh tops and acrylics.
