Shades & Shelters

Playgrounds and parks are a top summer fun destination for families, and while the kids are playing on the play structures you want to be sure that not only are they playing on safe, hazard-free equipment, but you also want them to be in a safe environment. The sun’s rays can be dangerous when a play area is left unshaded.

American Playground Company has a great selection of canopy shades from top playground equipment brands at affordable prices. Shades and shelters can make an incredible difference in how children and their families enjoy the summer months on days with clear skies and warm weather, and we can help you find the perfect shelter or shade structure for your space.

Visiting a park or playground is an excellent way for kids to get exercise and a breath of fresh air, but sun exposure can cause play structures to get hotter and hotter the later in the day it gets. As the temperature of the equipment increases, kids risk burning their arms, legs, hands, and any other exposed body parts. A playground canopy from American Playground Company can help to keep kids and your outdoor playground equipment safe. For ultimate safety, shades and shelters should be a necessary part of your overall plan when shopping for playgrounds.

Exposure to the sun’s rays can cause even worse and more long-term damage than discomfort and burns from hot playground equipment. Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause sunburns, overheating, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Having a playground shade structure in place to cover playgrounds and seating areas in parks or public play spaces can help keep people safe from such health hazards.
