Playground Shade Sails

Shade Solutions For Parks and Playgrounds

With over 20 years of experience designing and building playground shade sails, we now offer a range of innovative solutions to keep the kids safe while they enjoy climbing and jumping in the great outdoors. Our team has delivered shade solutions for all types of playgrounds, from small daycare centre play areas to large council playgrounds in parks. There’s no playground we can’t cover, and our flexible, customisable shade solutions give you all the choices you need to make your play areas as safe as they are beautiful.

Maximum UV protection

Greenline’s sun shade sails for playgrounds provide excellent UV protection where you need it most. Playground areas are a place for children to be free and have fun, and that often means hats fall off or they get too excited about playing and forget the sunscreen. With Greenline’s playground shade sails you can minimise risks of outdoor play, without compromising the kids adventures.


UV rays are notoriously harmful, with 2 in 3 Aussies diagnosed with skin cancer before their 70th birthday. Shade sails are the perfect solution for sun safe playground areas. All of our sails are customisable, meaning you can even cover the surrounding areas and get the parents in the shade too!

Choose from a range of colours

Greenline uses a range of different fabric solutions for our shade sails, and the best part of this is you can choose from a massive range of colours. In addition to the colour of the sail itself, we also use durable, weather-resistant powder-coated steel for our shade structures. These can be coloured to match your sails, or you can inject a bit of fun into the playground by using a mix of vibrant colours.

Add to the visual appeal of your playground

Whether it’s a council playground at the local park, a playground for a daycare centre, or for a school, you want the space to look as appealing as possible. The whole idea is to have families and children excited about using all the play equipment, and it always helps if your space has a strong visual appeal.

The bright colours available for shade structures and sails play a big part in this, but we also know that our innovative shade sail designs add to the overall look and feel of every playground. It’s this sort of visual appeal that adds value to your space, especially in a school playground. You always want to attract students to enrol, and having beautiful playground structures with shade sails is certainly one way to enhance your school’s reputation.

Cost-effective shade structures for school playgrounds

We’ve got a huge range of different sun shade sails for playgrounds, so you can find cost-effective solutions that won’t break your budget. Whether you want to cover large areas or just add a couple of strategically placed sails over the playground, we can custom design something just for you. Because we’re so experienced in designing shade for outdoor areas, we can even find the perfect way to cover all the areas you need.


You may want some coverage for your playground and also a seated area close by. If you don’t want a large shade structure, we can customise something for your playground while using some smaller solutions for your eating areas. If you’ve got a playground area you think is too difficult to create shade for, we’d love to hear from you. We love a challenge! 


Talk to us about additional options, such as matching playground shade colours to your school uniform/colours. We can also install padding on the post as an additional safety me

Shade structures for council playgrounds

We provide a range of solutions for council playgrounds too. You get all of the great options available with school playground shade structures, but we can customise them to suit any outdoor play area. 

When designing outdoor shade structures for councils, we offer a range of services including:

  • Anti-climbing devices for posts
  • Durable coatings and vandalism protection
  • Bird-proofing to minimise maintenance and cleaning

No playground too big or small

We’ve customised and installed shade sails for countless schools and councils across NSW and Victoria, in all different sizes. If you just need a small playground at a daycare centre covered, or you’ve got an expansive council playground that needs shade, we can always provide a solution. 

Speak to our expert team today, and we’d be happy to work with you to install the perfect shade structures for school playgrounds. We only use the highest quality materials for both the structure and the shade sail, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy the sun safety of your shaded area for many years to come.

I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures

I have great confidence in this team/company.

Wodonga Primary School - Damian Duncan - Principal

I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability. Our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.

From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.

The process relating to construction was very well explained with timelines, contractors details and

Overall, the finished product is absolutely great. It has exceeded all our expectations and is now a real asset for the school.

Greenline did a great job here and I would recommend them to any school wanting to develop a COLA.
