Shade

The harshness of the Australian sun demands that our children are well protected from harmful UV rays and shade design is a fundamental aspect of modern playground construction. We offer tailor made shade sails and shade structures for commercial playgrounds, schools and childcare centres. Our shade constructions provide engineered shade solutions that are specifically designed to complement your playground, play equipment and softfall surface.

Shade Pole Protection
Shade post-protectors are vital in reducing the potential for playground injury. We sell the highest quality pole-protectors that provide maximum life expectancy and reduce the potential for injury from accidental collision against the shade post.

Softf pads- For pole protection for childcare, schools, councils and sports.

Shade post-protectors protect against accidental collisions with shade support uprights by providing a protective layer of high impact absorbing foam. Playground operators have a duty of care to take reasonable precautions to prevent potential injuries, and installing Pole Protection assists in meeting the legal obligations of commercial playground operators.

Our shade post-protectors are made from high-density impact absorbing foam padding with a heavy-duty outdoor vinyl covering. Each protective pad is custom made to suit the size of the pole, and to reduce the potential for injury from accidental impact.
