Upgrade Your Community with Shade
Enjoyable outdoor spaces are an essential part of a well-planned community. With durable and attractive shade structures from Apollo Sunguard, municipalities can improve the function and comfort of public areas such as schools, parks, recreation facilities, playgrounds, pool decks, picnic areas, courtyards, town squares, walkways, parking lots and bus stops.
Cool and Comfortable
Stylish shade structures offer city, county, state and national governments and urban planners the opportunity to improve both the look and safety of public spaces. By mimicking the natural canopy of trees, Apollo Sunguard’s innovative fabric reduces temperatures up to 20 degrees and blocks up to 96% of the sun’s UV rays. Combined with our many options of structures and frame colors, the result is shade that is perfectly designed for your space. That means shady, comfortable places for people to enjoy what your city has to offer without fear of sunburn and overheating.
Benefits of providing municipal shade structures in your community:
- Attract more park and recreation visitors with comfortable and inviting public spaces
- Increase attendance at municipal events and gatherings
- Reduce the energy needed to cool people and property
- Improve the use and visual appeal of outdoor spaces
- Protect your municipality’s investment in outdoor fixtures, recreation facilities, and vehicle fleets from weather and sun damage
Made in the Shade
Planning an outdoor use project can be a daunting task for any organization, but it can be especially complex for a municipality. Before you even start to think about BreezeBrellas®, Cantilevers and Titans, you need to consider budget, long-term use of the space, ease of maintenance, and the needs and concerns of citizens, department leaders, politicians and appointees.
There are big benefits to working with the Apollo Sunguard team. We have worked with many city, county, and state governments, and we understand the requirements of projects big and small. We work with our municipal clients to prepare proposals, cut down on administrative expenses, and streamline the RFP and contracting process.
As a BuyBoard-awarded vendor, we’ve been vetted by a cooperative to simplify purchasing and ensure value for schools, municipalities, county governments and more. We’ll work with you to ensure the proposed project meets your goals and specifications – and the final product adds value for years to come. Apollo Sunguard shade structures come with a 20-year warranty on the steel framework and a 15-year warranty on the fabric. They are wind, fire and corrosion resistant and are designed with a quick release system to make removing the covers easy.
A Shining Example of Playground Shade
Hundreds of local families and visitors have enjoyed the safety and comfort of an Apollo Sunguard shade installation over a playground in Sarasota’s Nathan Benderson Park, a 600-acre community park that includes a premier 2,000-meter sprint rowing course and a regatta center. The bright and beautiful sail shades add a pop of appealing color while keeping the play equipment at safe temperatures for children to play and parents and caregivers to enjoy.
