Frequently Asked Questions
Shade Sails are a great way of covering large areas in an attractive, functional and economical manner. When designed and built properly, they are a permanent solution.

Q Are shade sails temporary structures?

A No. While a Shade Sail can be removed if needed, the structures are typically designed to be a permanent fixture and are engineered to withstand the same wind and storms as the surrounding buildings. A properly designed and certified structure that is correctly maintained will not ‘blow away’ or ‘fall down’ under any normal storm. Life expectancy on a Shade Structure is typically 15+ years.

Q Do you have many problems with vandals?

A No. Structures are designed to be vandal-resistant. While a determined vandal can damage almost anything, the intent is to make the structures too hard to vandalise, so the vandals go elsewhere. This is achieved through minimum height clearances and anti-vandal climbing devices on columns, fire retardant shadecloth and smart column location.

Latest Project Overview

Dynamic colours make this playground a favorite with locals!

Project Study: Dunbar Park

Pittwater Council required something dynamic to attract attention and maximise the use of the playground. Use of council colours achieved this, and the park is proving to be very popular.

Project Inspiration:

Council used their own colours as inspiration for the park sails. They were also inspired by the park’s close proximity to the water, so they wanted a bright, eye-catching sail effect.

Project Design:

There is a unique art to the look of twisted Shade Sails. They promote a cool breezy look that nothing else can match. Highs and lows add to the effect, and well-chosen colours provide stunning aesthetic appeal.
