Abstract

(i) Research shows that a large proportion of shade structures are inadequate at providing sufficient protection against the Suns harmful rays. (ii) Shade creation guidelines need to be updated. (iii) Groups that need to provide effective shade are severely limited by cost and building regulations. (iV) The protective nature of shade structures must outweigh the aesthetic appeal.
