Shade Systems


Our shade systems keep outdoor play and seating areas cool and protect outdoor equipment from the damaging effects of direct sunlight.

People tend to congregate where concrete, play equipment, and benches are cool and comfortable. Shade systems ensure your outdoor community areas will remain pleasant and welcoming even during the hottest times of the day. Well-placed canopies are a welcome substitute for shade in places where trees are not an option.

The right protection not only keeps your community areas pleasant to use in all weather, but it can also increase the life of your investment.

Of course, shades and canopies can be more than just functional. They can, and should, be attractive additions to your outdoor spaces. Miller and Associates offers fabric shades and canopies which are more affordable than traditional metal or wood shelters.  Fabric offers a variety of styles and colors to match your theme and branding. Choose permanent structures for large area protection or collapsible options for smaller coverage. You’ll appreciate the patented crank mechanism that is designed for fast and easy opening of umbrellas, with a turn-n-slide quick-release canopy fastening system available on many shades.

We can help you find the perfect shade system for new or existing playgrounds, bleachers, and other community seating areas.

Shelters are another way to provide shade for your area, and furnishings such as seatingtables, and amenities add to any site.
