The addition of community shade structures to outdoor areas can be a great way to provide privacy, protection and comfort to residents. Keep reading to learn about the advantages of utilizing shade structures in community spaces.

They Can Fit Unusual Spaces

Along with the more traditional square and rectangular shapes, custom shade structures can also be triangular in order to fit into smaller or more unusually-shaped community spaces. Anchor points can be adjusted to get the perfect shade angle, and structures can even be overlapped to create the perfect shade solution for your space.

They Provide Privacy

Shade structures are a great choice when you want to add privacy without completely blocking the sun. They are ideal for first-floor property with garden access, so residents can enjoy their outdoor space without having to worry about being overlooked.

They Offer Protection

Many apartment buildings and condominiums have outdoor playgrounds, so providing protected outdoor spaces is very important. Community shade structures offer a cool and comfortable space for residents to enjoy the outdoors without being at risk of sun damage. At Custom Canopies, our shade structures are fabricated with Alnet Extrablock shadecloth, which provides up to 98% UVR block. Temperatures under our shades can be as much as 25 degrees cooler than the surrounding air.

They Can Suit Any Style

Along with offering protection and privacy, community shade structures also have many aesthetic benefits. They can bring interest and appeal to outdoor community areas. With many color choices for both the shadecloth and the powdered steel supports, our shade structures offer an option to suit any building style.

They’re Safe and Durable

Because they have a more open frame, shade structures are extremely weather-resistant. Our fabrics and frames are fire resistant and carry a 10-year pro-rated warranty. Because they are designed with 20% ventilation, our fabrics breathe, and will not rip, fray, sag or stretch. When you choose to install a shade structure in your community, you are choosing a solution that is built to last.
