Our History

Sun Away Outdoor Shades is the best product on the market to protect your outdoor assets from costly sun damage. Tony Lee, owner/operator of Sunaway, has worked in the pool service industry for many years and was constantly replacing damaged pool equipment from sun exposure and extreme AZ heat. Looking for a functional, attractive and effective product for his client’s pool equipment, Tony set out on a two year journey researching and developing his patent pending custom shade structure for pool equipment. 


Tony presented the shades for the first time at the Desert Pool and Spa Show in Phoenix and because of high demand, immediately made the product available to the general public and the rest is history.


Sunaway Shades is the number one pool equipment shade company in Arizona for a reason. Each model is CUSTOM designed and built to fit your equipment. Our shade material blocks up to 75% of sunlight and has shown to decrease the temperatures over 50 degrees. It is our hope that you call on us to schedule a free estimate by simply calling our office at 602.435.1773.
