Expand the Natural Learning Environment With COLA Shades

Looking For

Quality COLA Shade Sail?

Construct a safe, learning and play environment for students and staff with a COLA (covered outdoor learning area) shade, purposely designed to provide protection from the harsh Australian sun and harmful UV rays. The team of protective sail specialists at Future Shade, recognise the importance of shelter in the school environment and customise outdoor shade sails to suit any application.

From playgrounds to basketball courts, amphitheaters, and sand pits, the outdoor sail plays a vital role in placing UV protection between your child and the glare of the sun. A crucial duty of care by the school and council as research directly links sunburn in children with an increased risk of melanoma and skin cancers later in life.
