Shade structures can be installed after a project is complete, such as adding a vehicle parking shade, or included in an initial project design. No mater your project, if you have an outdoor space your area will likely benefit from incorporating a shade structure. We outline six of those benefits below.

6 Benefits of Shade Structures

1). Reduce Exposure to Harmful UV Rays – The number one reason to add shade structure is to reduce exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

2). Protection from Elements – Not only does a shade structure protect from the sun, but it can also add a needed barrier from wind, dust and rain.

3). Keeps Area Cooler – A fabric shade structure allows air to pass through, keeping the area underneath cooler than a wood or metal structure (or no structure, for that matter)!

4). Equipment Protection: Shade structures help protect whatever is underneath them. For example, many car dealerships install shade structures to protect their inventory from harsh weather conditions. The relatively low cost is worth it to protect the cars (not to mention reduce their insurance rates as well).

5). Increases Comfort Level: Shade structures are often installed for the sole comfort of the user. For instance, some hospitals install shade over their parking lot, so that when patients or visitors leave they are not subjected to a stifling hot car (the last thing someone who just had surgery wants or needs!). Or if there is an area where people are sitting or standing outside for a long period of time, the shade can make them much more comfortable.
