Cover even circular spaces with the Hexagon Hip Shade. Square and rectangular shapes take up valuable space. With a curved shade overhead, those areas would be freed up for water fountains, benches, and more. Some structures, like art pieces, might already have a more circular shape that looks better under a hexagonal shade.
Venues for This Shade
For areas situated in direct sunlight, adding a shade help patrons to feel more comfortable. Visitors young and old will enjoy a break from the intensity of the sun. Add one above picnic tables to create a beautifully, restful lunch location. Keep the sidelines cool for kids and parents at a baseball or soccer game. Children can be kept out of the way of harmful rays even at the playground.
Children are often unaware of the dangers of playing in the sun on a playground. The sun’s rays create hot metal pieces, uncomfortable slides, and wears out equipment faster. Placing a canopy or shade above an expensive playground, can keep children safe, parents happy, and protects playground pieces from the inherent destruction from the sun.
Benefits of Using a Shade
A commercial shade is a large structure that will require building permits to erect on public property. To get the permits, Sealed Engineer Drawings are required for each shade size and type. Different areas of the USA have specific regulations for shades. It is important to check the building codes of the region before ordering a shade. For a fee, the manufacturer will handle creating a sealed engineer drawing that fulfills the needs of your particular region to make getting a building permit much smoother.
Sealed Engineer Drawings
Some shades may require additional structural information, drawings and specs. Playground Outfitters offers Sealed Engineer Drawings for an added cost from our manufacturer. Shades, as commercial structures, are held to building codes. This makes getting a permit to install one a necessity. For those shades going into areas that are prone to hurricane strength winds, stringent city codes, or heavy snow loads, it is recommended to apply for these Sealed Engineer Drawings for each shade to make for a quick and painless approval process.
Each shade is constructed from powder coat painted steel posts. Upon the posts, a PTFE fabric shade is fitted. PTFE fabric is formed from the same compound that non-stick cookware is covered in. The strength of these fibers keep wind to a comfortable level.
Choose from a range of colors that can be paired with any of the available PTFE fabric colors. Mix and match the hues to create a shade or group of shades that is unique to your outdoor space. Each shade comes customized to match the needs of your outdoor venue.
