Keep Your Cool with Metal Shade Structures

Keep Your Cool with Metal Shade Structures

Worried about keeping parkgoers and guests out of the heat? Cooler heads prevail when you have metal shade structures in place. A more stable and affixed option for providing ample shade and protection from the elements, metal shade shelters and structures are extremely popular at parks, HOA communities, and many other locales with outdoor settings. 

Outdoor shade structures are essential to any outdoor environment where people gather to play, socialize, and celebrate. When it comes to providing shade, Furniture Leisure offers a wide range of products – from canopies, cabanas, and cantilevers to sail shades and umbrellas – made with different materials like vinyl, fabric, fiberglass, and wood. However, if you’re looking for a permanent shade solution for your outdoor space, one of our commercial metal shade structures is the way to go. 

Park shelters a couple of decades ago provided just that, shelter, and not much else. Today’s park shelters and structures combine form and function so you don’t have to sacrifice style for practicality. At Furniture Leisure, we know that the look of commercial outdoor furniture is just as important as its purpose, which is why we’ve hand-picked the best and broadest lines of products from the highest quality U.S. manufacturers for our customers. Our metal park shelters are no exception! 

If you’re considering going with a more permanent shade structure for your park, HOA community, school, resort, or business, here are three key reasons why metal spark shelters are an ideal choice:

1. Extremely durable

All our metal shelters and structures are entirely built with industrial-grade steel. The roof plates are made of ASTM A-36 steel while the frames are constructed of ASTM A-500 carbon steel and powder-coated to help protect against rust, corrosion, and UV rays. Together, they provide structurally sound and nearly indestructible shelters – even in harsh outdoor elements. Our commercial metal structures stand up to 90-mile-an-hour winds and 20 pounds per square foot of snow, not to mention intense rain, hail, and heat. And, for added peace of mind, all our metal park shelter structures come with a 10-year commercial warranty.

2. Aesthetically appealing

Metal shelters are a welcome sight for guests. Not only do they offer safety from the elements, they are also open, spacious, and inviting. They also feature clean lines and contemporary designs that fit with any outdoor environment. At Furniture Leisure, our metal part structures come in square, hexagon, octagon, and rectangle shapes, plus we carry other types of metal shelters such as commercial structures for baseball dugouts, privacy shelters for bus stops, mini message/kiosk shelters, and trellises. Two-tiered roofs, cupolas, and cantilevered structures add to their aesthetic appeal.

3. Completely customizable

A metal park structure is not a “one size-, color- or shape-fits-all” type of product. To ensure you find the perfect shelter for your needs, we provide customizable options for all our structures. We mentioned our shelters come in different shapes, but we also offer them in different sizes. When viewing one of our metal shelters online, simply click on the Size dropdown menu to choose the appropriate size for your venue. 

To customize your shelter further, we also let you choose separate roof and frame colors from an extensive color palette. Pick two complementary colors, choose contrasting colors, or find colors that match your logo or team colors. With over 30 frame colors and 24 roof colors to choose from, the color combinations are endless! Not sure what colors to choose? Call us and we’ll be happy to send color samples to you in the mail.

The customizations don’t end there. All our metal park shelter structures have optional enhancements you can add to further personalize your shelter such as rounded columns, base shoe covers, and cupolas (decorative roof toppers). If you’d like to install lighting, ceiling fans, or speakers inside the shelter, you can add our electrical access package which provides cuts in the structure’s frame so you can route wiring.

Durable, versatile, and attractive, metal park structures from Furniture Leisure are second to none! All our metal shelters are custom-made with the option to have us install them for you. As such, please allow 7 to 14 business days (10 to 17 days if installation is requested) for us to provide a quote and spec drawing for your order.
