Apollo Sunguard is the second oldest shade structure manufacturer and the oldest privately-owned shade manufacturer in the United States. We have decades of experience delivering consistent, customer-focused service and superior products nationwide. Here are some other reasons:
FABRIC AND THREAD
Our fabric is well known for its strength, durability and vibrant colors. We use a high-density polyethylene material with ultraviolet additives that is breathable.
This means that our shade fabric mimics the natural shade trees by allowing air to flow through. This can cause a 20 degree temperature difference beneath.
Our fabric also resists mildew and mold, which means very low maintenance for the life of the fabric.
In addition, our advanced stitching thread is non-aging, carries a lifetime guarantee and will not rot from UV exposure or environmental causes.
Our structures are designed with superior quality steal and are virtually maintenance-free. We design our structures to incorporate a clean and simple Quick Release System™.
Only a standard wrench is needed to release the cloth. We also provide simple and accessible replacement parts.
Apollo Sunguard Shade Cloth has been tested by an independent laboratory. A large number of the colors meet a minimum of 93 percent UV Block as recommended by sun safety organizations and advocates.
Our fabric passes the ASTM E-84 fire rating test and the NFPA 25 and NPFA 701. Our fabric is rated a Class 1 Material.
We are an approved vendor to the Federal Government and have been awarded GSA contracts. We are proud to have our structures protecting government and military personnel worldwide.
We also are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business.
