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.

Jeannie McLean, Business Manager - Waitakere College
"It’s certainly made my job a lot easier because I’m out there every day. It’s been absolutely fantastic – brilliant in the wintertime, but it was also really useful in the summer when it was too hot out on the field."

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.
