About Us

America’s Leading Shade Structure Manufacturer

A leading producer of innovative shade structure products, Shade ‘N Net designs, engineers and manufactures state-of-the-art fabric shade canopy and shade awning products using UV stabilized polyethylene shade netting over steel frames.

History of the Company

Since 1995, Shade ‘N Net has been a leading manufacturer of architectural fabric, cable-tension shade structures and has had the same ownership since the beginning.

As an early pioneer in the shade industry, Shade ‘N Net has raised the standards of excellence and paved the way for innovative design and technology. Keeping safety, quality and reliability at the forefront of the company mission has earned Shade ‘N Net the trust and loyalty of its growing customer base. 

To ensure the structures exceed the industry standards, Shade ‘N Net undergoes detailed independent third-party audits to maintain its Approved Steel Fabricator certification with Clark County, Nevada and the City of Phoenix, Arizona. These annual audits independently examine the materials used, the welders’ certification, quality control of the entire manufacturing process, material traceability and all safety records.

Structures are manufactured with top quality steel components and high density polyethylene material that allows heat to escape while protecting anyone and anything underneath it from the sun’s harmful UV rays, as well as hail protection for the areas that are prone to that issue.

Shade ‘N Net is proud to have more than 150,000 shade structures installed around the world. Shade ‘N Net also has shade structures installed in nearly every school district in the State of Arizona. This speaks to the quality of the structures that Shade ‘N Net manufactures.

All products, whether you choose a shade structure or shade sail design, are custom-built to your specific needs, ideas, dimensions, and color selection. All Shade ‘N Net structures are warranted for an impressive 20 years and the fabric is warranted for 20 years, so clients can always buy with confidence.


We offer a variety of shade structure shapes, sizes and models to give singular or complex shade configurations to suit both commercial and residential shade solutions. We work with Architects and Landscape Architects from project origin to retail customers through both custom shade structures and standard shade solutions. Our fabric cable tension canopies are available in our popular 4-post, T-post shade structures, cantilever shade canopies, extreme span, umbrellas, triangles, pentagons, hexagons, octagons, shade sails to fit any outdoor space that requires shade.


Since our inception in the United States in 1995 we have quickly become one of the country’s most experienced commercial manufacturers of quality fabric shade systems today. Shade ‘N Net was originally founded in Australia in the early 1990’s and is widely recognized as one of the shade structure pioneers setting standards for cable-tension shade structures in the USA.  As an American owned and operated shade structure manufacturer, we always strive to offer optimum premium shade structure products in Sun /UV / Hail protective canopies nationwide.


Due to our medium-sized company status, we are able to practice lean management principles which give us the advantage of quick decisions and flexibility. We instill a white glove care to all our shade structure projects from simple standard projects to highly complex industrial shade systems. We invite you to test our performance and allow us to partner with your project for seamless execution.
