The Sunstopper Shade Structure is a low-cost, multipurpose structure that is easy to assemble and available with several options of shade cloth. Sturdy anchor plates or ground stakes secure it against high winds. Modular design allows for future expansion.

Retailers and growers alike will benefit from the sun and wind protection provided by the Sunstopper. It’s a wonderful example of how strength and
convenience come together to provide you with added value. By utilizing 2½” O.D. 12 gauge galvanized steel (when others use just 1.66”), and by attaching shade panels with 10” bungee balls, you are assured of both stability and quick assembly. While standard sizes offer an economical option, we’re happy to help you customize the Sunstopper for your individual layout needs.
