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.

All materials are commercial grade, just like the shade itself. The sturdy construction is what will hold up to outdoor usage in hot, cold, and everything-in-between environment.
