SkyWays™ Shade Products

Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, has introduced SkyWays™ Shade Products. SkyWays, the company’s largest shade structure offering, is perfect for the playground and anywhere a large amount of shade coverage is needed—at the ball field, on the beach, in a parking lot and much more.

Designed to meet the demands of both heat and sun, SkyWays is the most versatile way to shade kids and families from up to 97 percent of harmful UV rays and keep structures as much as 30-degrees cooler. In addition to the five standard styles of SkyWays Shade Products below, Landscape Structures offers completely customizable options to fit any shade needs:

  • SkyWays Cantilever: Designed for spaces that need to keep posts to a minimum, this shade solution extends from posts on one side.
  • SkyWays Cantilever, Back-to-Back: Center-positioned posts allow for big sun coverage that feels open and airy.
  • SkyWays Hip: The clean lines of this solution complement any outdoor environment—playgrounds, seating areas, pool surrounds and nearby buildings.
  • SkyWays Hexagon, Single Layer Panels: Offer an alternative shape to clients for large, round areas or to complement the spherical Evos® playsystem.
  • SkyWays Hexagon, Double Layer Panels: The overlapping panels keep everyone underneath cool and away from the sun.

SkyWays joins Landscape Structures’ CoolToppers® Shade Products as the industry’s gold standard in shade. CoolToppers, introduced in 2004, are the industry’s first full-integrated shade product designed to attach to PlayBooster® playstructures or be used as standalone shade products at ground level.

Landscape Structures shade products feature breathable, weather-resistant fabric made of high-density polyethylene that’s resistant to mildew, fading and ultraviolet rays. Even more, all corners are reinforced with 16-ounce non-tear vinyl and all pockets with protective webbing where steel tubing enters or exits for super durability.

The SkyWays Shade Products, manufactured and distributed out of the Landscape Structures’ Dallas, Texas, division, were developed by a team of seasoned professionals in the shade industry. Learn more about SkyWays Shade Products by visiting
