Southern Recreation Outdoor Shade Structures

Shade Structures

Southern Recreation carries the finest American made shade structures available today. Whether your shade needs to be incorporated into your swings or playstructure, or free standing over your play equipment, we have the right size and style of shade for your project. Our shade structures come equipped our exclusive “glide elbows” for quick removal of your shade tops. Shades are also very popular for picnic areas, bleacher coverings, multi-purpose courts, dugouts, car washes, parking, and a host of many other applications. Give us a call today so that we may design the right shade for your project! Check out our amenities line to compliment your shade.


In preparing your shade structure for Hurricane Season, Southern Recreation (SR) highly recommends that you refer to our Full Shade Information Brochure below for care, maintenance, and removal of your shade or view the instructional video provided below.

All fabric tops are warranted for sustained winds up to 76mph (hurricane force 1) and for gusts of up to 3 seconds duration up to 90mph. Removal of the shade fabric is required if damaging winds are called for.

Southern Recreation highly recommends that all shade owners closely monitor the track of Hurricane Dorian and decide when (or if) your shade top should be removed.

SR will not be able to respond to all requests for shade top removal. Please see our video on how to remove the canopy yourself.

There will be a fee associated with the removal and reinstallation of any shade cloth by SR.

SR does not guarantee the timely reinstallation of any shade tops that were either removed by SR or by the owner. We will do the best that we can to address each request.

To protect your shade investment, we recommend removing your shade fabric during the fall and winter to avoid heavy snow loads. This will keep your shade fabric in good shape for use during the spring and summer seasons.
