We traditionally find that full planning consent is not required for the installation of a PlayShade canopy, although we always advise that a quick call to your Local Authority or County Council should be sufficient to confirm this.
Should you find that your Local Authority requires a planning application to be completed for your canopy, please let us know; we will be very happy to support you by supplying any relevant drawings and information that is required.
PlayShade offers a complete turn-key service to include everything from the foundations and installation of the canopy itself, to making good the remaining area and any required aftercare.
Our canopies can be installed nationwide, at any time of the year and we have a dedicated team of fully certified, highly trained and skilled Installation Engineers and Project Managers to provide the ultimate professional service.
We guarantee that any product in the PlayShade range is designed, engineered manufactured and installed to the highest standards, utilising quality materials, fabric and fixings.
PlayShade canopies are manufactured using high strength, high protection, durable shadecloth fabric.
We have 10 brightly coloured fabrics to choose from and to retain the vitality and beauty of the fabric we recommend a biannual clean using a mild detergent solution followed by a thorough rinse with fresh water.
Alternatively, PlayShade can co-ordinate maintenance and cleaning packages for any structure in the range. Please contact us directly for details and pricing 3 months before your structure's 1st anniversary.
Safety Protection Padding
PlayShade’s tailor-made protection padding wraps can be purchased as a set to fit any of the structures within the PlayShade range.
