Shade Sails for Schools

Our custom made Shade sails are perfect for schools and nurseries that want to provide shade and UV protection so children can learn and play outside, safe from the sun.

Children are most vulnerable to sun exposure during the first 15 years of their lives. Sunburn during childhood can double the risk of skin cancer in later life.

With shade sails for schools, you can create a stimulating, colourful focus for play, or a calm and cool environment for rest or reading in the playground.
