Shade Sails

Shade sails are a modern solution for shading an area. Did you know that they are a much cooler solution than erecting a corrugated iron or polycarbonate roof sheeting pergola or structure?

HDPE – Shade cloth

Shade cloth made from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is a heavy-duty knitted mesh with a monofilament and yarn construction designed for use in shade structures, privacy screens, and shade sails. HDPE shade cloth is suited to projects where the specifications require a fabric suitable for exposure to environmental conditions, including wind, rain, hail, dust and UV rays. Woven HDPE shade cloth offers maximum Ultra Violet A&B protection.

Sydney Shade Sails Pty Ltd preferred shade cloths include Rainbow Shade Z16 and Monotech 370 Series.

Tension Membranes

Tension Membranes are an aesthetically pleasing versatile means of providing a waterproof shelter from the rain in wet weather and shade during hot weather.

Tension membranes are essentially shade sails or structures which are manufactured using PVC material.

PVC – Polyvinylchloride

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a resin coated polyester waterproof fabric designed for use in architectural membranes, fabric structures and car park shelters. PVC is treated with specific chemical formulas to protect against UV radiation, weather degradation, staining, and to promote fire resistance. PVC is available in a variety of colours and types to meet a wide range of applications and structural requirements.

Privacy Screens

Privacy screens are a tailor-made shade cloth solution for blocking out your neighbour’s view or a passerby’s vision into your outdoor area. There are council guide lines on how high your privacy screen may be erected. It is best to consult your local council to comply with the local regulations


Cafe Blinds

Cafe Blinds block out the wind while allowing the user to view the outdoor environment. They can be rolled up on windless days and unfurled on windy days. It is best to roll them up and secure them in strong winds. They are made from a heavy duty clear PVC. We manufacture and install custom cafe blinds for restaurants and cafes as well as commercial and domestic settings
