Commercial Shade Structures

There is no shortage of sunshine on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. If you run a business with a car park or a school – anything with a large, outdoor area – you have experience with just how harsh that hot sun can be. At a car park during an average summer day at 30 degrees Celsius, the sun beating down on a car can heat the inside of it to over 60 degrees Celsius, making it dangerous even to re-enter the car until the interior cools down. On a school playground, the effects of the hot sun are even more hazardous, as too much sun exposure can have adverse effects on children, including sunburn, heat exhaustion, or sun sickness (severe sunburn). All these effects, resulting from too much UV exposure, can increase the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma.

Whether you’re running a commercial business or a school with a car park, chances are you need some relief from the sun. That is where Versatile Structures comes into the equation. Our company offers commercial shades sails for Sunshine Coast businesses, as well shades for a car park, school, or any other outdoor establishment that needs cover from the sun.

Our shade sails are also beneficial for protecting against other harsh weather conditions throughout the year. Along with UV protection, our uniquely designed sails help protect against rain, storm, wind, and hail damage. It’s an especially smart purchase for outdoor car parks, as they will prevent damage to employee vehicles.
