The Benefits of Athletic Stadium Shade Structures

Sports areas such as bleachers and dugouts benefit tremendously from shade structures. Here are five reasons to consider adding a USA SHADE & Fabric Structures shade structure to your sports field or outdoor athletic facility:

1. Protect Athletes From Heat-Related Ailments

Covers for baseball dugouts and team benches reduce the risk of overheating, dehydration and other heat-related ailments caused by high temperatures and the sun’s harmful UV rays.

2. Enhance Your Fan Experience

Bleacher shade structures protect fans against heat exhaustion and sunburn, so that they can enjoy watching the game.

3. Encourage Spectators to Stay Longer

Shielding concourses and other common areas with shade structures keep fans cool and engaged in the game. Customers can browse for concessions and mingle with their food and drinks comfortably.

4. Reduce Pesky Glare

Shade structures help eliminate glare from metallic reflections, allowing athletes and fans to have a clear line of sight on the field without obstruction.
