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.
