When the weather's good, children need to be out enjoying it, without worrying about burning delicate skins. We are experienced at working with early childhood centres, primary schools and secondary schools to help you decide on the best solution for your outdoor play area, regardless of its size, big or small. Shade Sails are our speciality!


Our free measure and quote service includes a site visit, full discussion with you on the options available, measure-up, typed quotation with full breakdown - all professionally provided and with no obligation to choose us. We also always follow up our quotes and help you in any way we can to reach your decision.


We understand the requirements of presenting to boards and do our utmost to cover every angle- just like our shades and protection structures do! Feel confident that you can leave it to us. We also make sure we work around usage times, not encroaching on your busy schedule.
