PROBLEM:
We’d like to provide shade for spectators sitting in the bleachers at sports fields, and we want to do it with style.

SOLUTION:
A perfect shade solution is the Arc Cantilever design, which has gracefully curved canopies and columns that are cleverly located only in the rear for support. They leave the front of the shades free of obstacles for clear viewing. Shade Systems is also the only manufacturer of outdoor shade structures offering the patented Turn-N-Slide™ easy canopy removal and re-attachment system.

Bare feet and wet floors don’t mix.

SOLUTION:
Dri-Dek® is the perfect solution for wet floors. Its textured, anti-skid, self-draining surface keeps those wet floors dry. It’s perfect in pool areas, showers, locker rooms and barefoot walkways.

PROBLEM:
Our outdoor tables are being damaged by hot pans and grills.

SOLUTION:
The Polly Table Hot Plate is the solution to a common problem with tables in areas with grills or firepits: accidental burns and melt damage to picnic tables causes by hot pans or grills. It’s designed so pans and pokers straight off the fire won’t hurt it or the table beneath it. It provides a heat shield for tabletop grills and is designed to be screwed directly onto Polly Products’ rectangular tabletops.

PROBLEM:
How do we protect children at the playground from falls?

SOLUTION:
The primary function of Poured-in-Place and TurfTop playground surfacing is to protect children when they fall during play. Loose particles such as rubber mulch, synthetic wood chips and sand share a common deficiency in dispersing in critical areas. Ruts and depressions are common in high-traffic areas where these loose-fill materials are most needed and where falls most often occur. Poured-in-Place and TurfTop playground surfacing are always “where you need it, when you need it.”
