What are the Different Types of Parking Shades for Cars?

There is more than one shade solution for your car park.

When protecting your car park, it is best to consider what kind of customer experience you wish to provide.

For example, car dealerships will likely prefer something completely weatherproof and hardy to protect customers’ cars and the vehicles they sell.

The commercial shade structures for car parks that Greenline offer include:

  • Shade sails: We provide custom shade sails designed to fit any space you need coverage on. The simple fabric material simplifies installation by protecting from 90-100% UV rays. You can also choose from our waterproof fabrics to provide additional cover from rain and keep your customers dry and happy.
  • Barrel vaults: For larger car park spaces, the barrel vault shade structure is the best solution from Greenline. Our vaults are hardy enough to stand against all elements while providing a wide-open space to fit a range of customer vehicles. Whether you choose a PVC fabric or steel frame, your customers are guaranteed an extensive experience of protection and safety.
  • Star structures: Car parks on a smaller scale can benefit from using a star structure as a shade solution. These shade fabrics are perfectly suited to provide coverage in tight spaces as they only use two poles for their foundation. The waterproof fabric and reinforced seams make these simple sails incredibly sturdy and capable of standing the test of time.

What are the Benefits of Car Parking Shades?

We sometimes experience some pretty wild weather in Australia and often get both extremes.

Many weather elements, from the scorching sun to heavy rainfall, can damage cars. That is why car park shade structures are essential for protecting our vehicles.

When it comes to extensive exposure to UV rays, the sun can damage your car’s exterior and interior.

The outside paint is likely to chip or crack, while the sun steadily bleaches the interior fabric and causes it to fade.

To protect a car’s resale value and appearance, it is essential to keep it in the shade whenever possible. Hence, finding a car park that offers sufficient shade structures is necessary.

While not every commercial space is suited to having full undercover car parks, building car park shade structures over top-side spaces can provide the same benefits.

These include:

  • Increasing the amount of time shoppers feel comfortable leaving their car outside, thus increasing income for stores.
  • Rooftop car parks with shade structures can also lower the temperature load of the building.
  • Overall, improve the ambient temperature of the car park on hot days.
  • Keep all vehicles well-protected at all times.

With Greenline’s help, you can create a covered parking area that gives you the same protection without the bulky structures and expense.
