We are well aware of the natural elements which provide shade but there are a lot of unique ways in which the artificial shade elements have been created using ad hoc methods. Temporary shading devices are often created on site by the vendors using a variety of methods which is feasible for their economic conditions.

The vulnerability of stakeholder plays a deciding factor for the size and the material used.
