Commercial Swimming Pool Shade Structures

Anyone who has taken a swim on a hot day knows that the sun can occasionally become a challenge to overcome, rather than a pleasant addition. Particularly with the harsh UV rays of the Australian sunlight.

Without realising it, you can easily get sunburned while swimming as the sun’s rays are strengthened due to the reflection from the water. This can take a pleasant day at the pool side to a week spent dealing with the unpleasant effects of sunburn.

That is where the convenience of outdoor shade structures for pools come in.

By blocking out the sun’s rays, pool shade structures help keep both the water and the surrounding area cool and comfortable. When pool umbrellas are not enough to provide comfort and sun safety, look to Greenline’s high-quality shade cloth fabrics to create shade for the entire pool.

Benefits of a commercial pool shade cover

There is a lot to benefit from when it comes to the addition of a pool shade structure in a commercial venue. The simple addition of shade fabrics over the pool and its surrounding areas can bring various conveniences and comforts to visitors. With the right professional application, the structures can also bolster your business ventures significantly.

We have provided a clear picture below of the benefits of pool shades and how they can bolster your venue’s overall success. With this information, you can determine what Greenline shade solution would best suit your needs:

Reduced pool operating costs

A pool is an excellent place to relax and exercise on hot summer days.

Commercial swimming pools can be expensive to operate for businesses with a large flow of customers, particularly when it comes to cooling and cleaning chemicals. One way to reduce these costs is by installing shade sails for pools.

Shade sails create a shaded area around the pool, which helps keep the water cooler and reduces evaporation, making a notable difference in your water bill over time.

In addition, shading the pool can reduce the growth of algae and other organisms, reducing the cost of cleaning chemicals and maintenance.

They also make it possible to use the commercial swimming pool on days when the weather is cooler.

By providing a barrier between the pool and the cooler air, shade sails help to maintain the water temperature, and allow your guests to enjoy a swim even when the temperature outside is less than ideal.

This increases the flow of people swimming even in the off-season or winter.

Unlike traditional umbrellas or cabanas, pool shade sails provide a large coverage area with minimal effort. While they may require an initial investment, they will pay themselves off within a year or two.

Greenline’s shade sails are highly durable, and you can enjoy their benefits for years to come.

The ultimate protection from UV rays

The sun is the earth’s primary energy source, but its ultraviolet rays can be dangerous because overexposure can cause skin cancer, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing.

Nevertheless, there are ways to let your customers enjoy the sun without risking their health.

Poolside shade structures are an increasingly popular choice for UV protection while in the pool.

Traditional umbrellas only offer partial protection from the sun, but shades for pools create a complete barrier between people and the sun’s harmful UV rays.

They are made from UV-resistant fabric and are designed to provide up to 98% protection.

Additionally, shade sails are easy to install and can be used to create an outdoor oasis so people can enjoy your pool year-round. So, consider investing in a swimming pool shade structure to make the outdoor space enjoyable without risking your customers’ health.

Privacy and aesthetics

People love spending lazy summer days by the pool. Despite that, there are times when people can feel like they are on display when relaxing in the pool.

Poolside shade structures provide just enough privacy to ease their minds and feel more comfortable. The shades also add character to your outdoor space.

You can find pool shade sails in various colours and styles to match your patio furniture and decor. They are also portable, enabling you to take them with you should you move or shift your business.

So whether you’re looking for function or style, pool shade structures are a great way to update your pool area and make it unique.

Pool shade structures designed for you

Most customers prefer cool and shaded pools to those exposed to the elements.

But what should you do if you don’t have any trees or other natural shade over your pool?

The answer is simple: invest in some custom pool shade sails.

Pool shade sails come in different shapes and sizes to suit your needs. Be it a small sail that provides shade over the pool for limited sun protection or one large enough to cover all of your pool areas; the choice is yours!

These shade sails are also easy to install and take down, so having them is never a hassle. In addition, they can be custom-made to fit your pool perfectly.

With such a vast range of colours and designs to choose from, you can easily find pool shade sails that meet your expectations and requirements.

It should be noted that installing a new shade sail can be a hefty investment, with prices ranging from as little as $230 to $1100 per square metre.

The installation cost depends on the size and type of your pool, and other factors such as steel price. Regardless, you’ll find out that a custom pool shade structure is a worthy investment because of all its benefits in the long run.
