Playground & Parks

Specialists in the design and construction of school and public playground shade structures!

The Playground & Park Shade Canopy is an attractive, cost effective solution for your shade requirements. Designed with versatility in mind and safety with its fire retardancy, the Playground Shade Canopy can be made to suit the local conditions and made to various heights.

Built with a strong, hot dip galvanised and powdercoated structural round pipe, the Playground & Park Shade Canopy boasts a quick and simple shade solution for many applications. Because the eaves are low and the centre is high this shade structure is ideal for playground with swings or other high play equipment. Depending on wind loadings and size of the structure we offer shade cloth that boasts up to 97.6 UVR and 41 UPF under tension.  Our shade cloths range from 10 to 15 Year UV Warranty.  With so many colours to chose from we can create a vibrant, strong shade solution for every requirement.

Instaco specialise in creating custom shade structures suitable for all playground and public park locations.
