Have you got courts that need covering? Take a look at some of the recent COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) projects Shade Systems designed, fabricated and installed…
Manurewa Intermediate School
June 30, 2018
Manurewa Intermediate School already had a large multi-sport astroturf area. What the teachers found, is that their students didn’t want to play on the turf during hot weather as the surface became too hot, so they decided to research solutions for this issue and found the COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) concept.
As the area was a large space to cover, the BOT knew it was going to be a large investment and didn’t want to tie up the School funds, so they approached Equico (leasing partner for Schools) to see if they were open to a lease to own arrangement.

"I cannot recommend Shade Systems highly enough. They are lovely to work with, know their product, they won both the tenders so they are very competitive and have provided us with exactly what we needed."
Noelle Fletcher, Principal - Te Atatu Intermediate
“Putting in NZ’s first and only crochet net by Japanese Artist Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam meant we were faced with a challenge on how to create an attractive and efficient shade system. Shade Systems ideas and flexibility, were just what we needed to make this an outstanding feature in our Urban landscape”
David Sutherland, Owner - Whoa! Studios
"Just a short note to say the canopy was unaffected by the storm despite trees at the school giving way left right and centre and the school closing for 2 days! All credit to your design and construction team! Thanks again."
Andrew Steele, BOT - Three Kings School
"I would strongly recommend the COLA canopy and I think that Shade Systems gave us excellent advice! I would listen to everything they say and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!"
Judith Howe, EO - Gladstone School

Shade Equals Safer Spaces
It is well-known that high numbers of New Zealanders suffer from Melanoma because of harmful UV rays from the sun. Our shade structures offer protection from these rays, keeping New Zealanders more sun safe.
Looking ahead, our vision is to help improve and enhance the health and quality of our customers’ lives. We aim to do this by creating shade systems that our clients can use for generations and also through supporting Melanoma New Zealand, an organisation who research and develop ways to cure UV related skin cancers.
