Shade sails are a great way to protect your house and family from the harsh Australian weather. They come in a wide range of colours and can be a stylish addition to your home or business.

Shade sails can be constructed in any shape, colour or size. They can be attached to any free standing poles or posts so they don’t need any additional roofing support which gives you the freedom to play around with your design options. Your ordinary, bare looking outdoor area will be transformed from drab to fab in just a few days.

Shade sails can be an affordable way to add some personality to outdoor areas around your home. Your options are only restricted by your imagination.

The cloth used to make the sails come in varying thickness and depending on your choice can block up to 98% of the sun’s powerful Ultraviolet rays. You will be able to enjoy the outdoors knowing that you and your family are protected from the harsh outdoor elements.

A great idea to cover up would be over your swimming pool which has many benefits- you will have a nice relaxing place to soak when the temperature gets too hot and the shade will prevent the pool water from getting too hot and evaporating. Another place would be an outdoor area of your home that needs some change. Adding a shade sail can make it into a great outdoor entertaining area.

The Different type of Shade sails:

Free Standing: This type of shade is perfect for a specific area that needs covering up such as a car park and can be used in both commercial and residential properties. They come in a wide range of shapes and can be specifically created to serve your unique purpose.

Residential shades: These are specially designed for protecting residential areas such as pools, alfresco and other open entertaining areas. They come in either manual or motorised designs and can have added features such as arm awnings, window screens and can be made retractable.

Connected shades: This is a great way to cover up areas like an entryway, veranda or deck. They are installed by connecting the shade sail to existing poles or posts around the property. This way you will not need any additional structures to hold them upright.

Umbrella shades: These come in various shapes and sizes and can suit both residential and commercial areas. The shades are shaped like a huge umbrella and are held together by a metal pole. Other designs include wall mounted or cantilever umbrellas which are also known as cantilever umbrellas. This design does not take up a lot of space unlike others and can be a stylish addition to your pool or outdoor dining area.
