We also incorporate your requirements for privacy and other must-have features into the design. Once production is underway, your shade sail is engineered, designed, and certified to the highest standards.

By using our mix of high-quality posts, textile, componentry, design and installation you will ensure your shade sail stays where it should, causes no damage to your property, and protects the people enjoying it for years to come.

High performance shade cloth textiles

Not all shade cloth is created equal.

Our local experts have considerable experience to help you choose the best fabric for your shade sails, to ensure you are happy with the space long after completion. Specially designed for the harsh climate of Australasia, the quality fabrics selected for you will work and last.

Our preferred shade textile is the Z16 shade cloth which has a reputation for quality that is unmatched. The Z16 UV reduction factors are amongst the best in the industry.

We also offer a range of other fabrics to suit your needs, including where you require extra strength, full rain protection, the capacity to create large-scale shade sails, and the added features and benefits of specialist textiles and coatings.
