Shade is more important than ever and one of our most popular and growing product lines.  Shade structures provide the extra protection both adults and children need. They are permanent installations built to create shade in outdoor locations that are unprotected from the sun, such as playgrounds, pools and other recreation spaces. PlayGO co. offers a variety of shade options, shown below, that can be designed for your unique space and needs and which include the option of our Glide Elbow mechanism -- allowing you to easily take down your shade fabric during inclement weather or the off season.
