Shade Sails & Shade Structures

With the right design, shade sails can provide excellent and attractive coverage.  Using the highest quality, purpose specific technical fabrics your shade sail will be highly tensioned between three or more anchor points.  These points are usually concrete embedded custom-made galvanised steel posts.  Over the years we have developed a number of building and tree anchor systems that may be used if the location is appropriate.  To be efficient andmuseum cafesafe all shade sails should be engineered to suit a particular location.  Great care must be taken especially when using a building as an anchor point.  It is extremely important to understand the intrinsic variables with shade sail design, which is why each project is unique and suitably engineered.  Our shade sail design team will be more than happy to assist with your shade sail project.

Shade Structures provide very cost efficient shading for larger areas.  hawkesdaleEspecially good for playgrounds and car parks where clear-span and minimal post numbers are required. Generally a heavy-duty shade cloth cover is stretched over and secured to a steel frame.  Shade Structures need to be properly engineered to be safe from collapse (all our structures are certified by recognised structural engineers).  The frames and covers come with a ten-year warranty.
