Jobsite Safety and Timelines

At SHADE Industries, all of our installers pass a lengthy background check, carry a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance Card, and have attended at minimum OSHA-10 training. Annual and bi-annual certifications, such as CPR with AED, First Aid, Fall Protection, Boom and Scissor Lift Certification, Ladder Certification, etc., are kept current and available upon request. We hold weekly safety meetings alongside project specific toolbox meetings.

Our project managers keep in constant communication about project timelines and scheduling the different phases of construction. By including SHADE Industries in the developing timeline of your overall project, we can keep both your timeline and budget in check.

Build With Us

We warranty all of our craftsmanship for a minimum of two years, and the fabric is warrantied against sun degradation for 10-15 year, depending on fabric selection. We only use Tenara thread, which is warrantied for the lifetime of the fabric against sun degradation.
