No. 1 Keep Your Recreation Areas Cooler

Having a shade structure will significantly reduce the ambient temperature of your playground equipment. Any material in the direct summer heat will get so hot that it makes it almost impossible to have a good time. Recreation time quickly turns into a miserable experience when the equipment is too hot to touch. Our shades reduce the heat and keep kids safer, allowing them to enjoy the equipment at much larger time intervals. Also, our fabric shade structures are breathable and allow air to pass through, keeping the area underneath cooler than wood or metal structures. 

No 2. Protection from Elements

Our shade structures do far more than just protect kids and your commercial playground investment from the sun, it can also add a needed barrier from wind, dust, rain, or even snow. Our shades at Childforms provide year-round protection that allows you to enjoy your playground in all four seasons. What about rain? No problem, Childform’s park playground shade structures use a fabric that features approximately 60-70% water runoff allowing your have fun even when the weather doesn’t cooperate!. 

No. 3 Be Compliant with Accreditation Standards

For preschool, schools, park and recreation departments, and many other public agencies, accreditation standards require a certain amount of square footage to be shaded, either naturally through trees or through the artificial shade. If natural shade is not an option in your area, a shade structure may be the best route to meet these standards. 

No.4 Protect Your Commercial Playground

Commercial-Grade playgrounds are a serious financial investment. Between the research and design of the perfect playground structure, you have dedicated your money and human resources to provide the most fun playground you can. We know that you want your made in the USA playground from Childforms to last many years and with our playground shade solutions, we are able to help keep your equipment safe from the long-term damaging effects from the UV rays of the sun and general exposure from many other natural elements.
