SHADE SAILS, aptly named for their sail-like shapes and shade providing function, are actually tensioned fabric membranes that can be twisted, overlapped and angled into a virtually limitless array of soaring forms.
We think it is important to help our children of today, enjoy outdoor activity more safely, and the advantage of a SHADE SAIL is there flexibility to fit your space and suit your budget.
Whether providing a subtle architectural accent or expanding over large areas in the commercial scene, SHADE SAILS are always very aesthetically pleasing and can be easily integrated into any landscape.
We manufacture our SHADE SAILS from Monotec 370 series shade cloth. This is the ultimate in commercial grade mesh, setting the benchmark for heavy duty knitted shade fabric.
Hip Roof Shade Structures
Serious cover for serious playgrounds. When you require continuous shade, generous headroom, advanced durability and stylish function all in one, HIP-ROOF SHADE STRUCTURES are the ANSWER! These are robust structures. They don’t have the same tendency as sails to sag or flap over time and are much more resistant to climbing or vandalism.
Shade cloth fabric is a breathable material that provides the ultimate heat reduction on anything and everything underneath. The HIP-ROOF has a simple clean form that is compatible with a variety of architectural approaches and effectively covers large areas from the sun without that closed in feeling.
These structures have a shade cloth membrane, tensioned over a hip shaped framework supported by freestanding poles. This is held taut with a tensioned stainless-steel wire cable sewn into the perimeter hem - this allows our structures to withstand virtually any weather conditions.
Tensile Membrane Structures
RELAX!... It’s fabric!
With alternatives to conventional building materials, you can now expand the boundaries! Aesthetically pleasing, structurally balanced, sleek, stylish and modern - a Tensile Membrane PVC Canopy has numerous advantages; maximum shade, minimum temperatures, waterproof, translucent and quiet.
Stand out from the crowd or blend in with the setting?
Innovative and professional results are our specialty.
Our Tensioned Membrane structures are manufactured to the highest quality, using specialist Architectural Grade PVC, top grade hardware/tensioners and precision engineered framework.
COVERED OUTDOOR LEARNING AREAS (C.O.L.A.s)
C.O.L.A.s maximise the use of outdoor space, providing year round protection from the sun and rain, allowing uninterrupted programs.
Using rigid ‘Hard Top’ polycarbonate roofing or flexible ‘Soft Top’ PVC tensile membranes larger and larger areas can now be covered with these awesome clear span structures.
While function is the most critical, these C.O.L.A.s can make an architectural statement with their arched rafters or trusses, flowing curves and shapes. The 99% UV block they provide while still allowing a high level of light transmission is also a huge advantage. Lighting setups and sound systems can be included for that added dimension i.e. assembly points, galas, functions or even night time training if required.
Solar Sheild Canopies

Car Park Shade
The beauty of tensile shade structures is the freedom to cover large areas. The Sail and Cantilever options provide a cool breezy look that adds cover but does not block the light and open feel.
Whether it be the Cantilever or the Sail, the modular concept still applies and covered areas can be extended over a period of time.
Painted poles and framework add to the effect where colour schemes are your prominent feature. The framework can stand out or blend in depending on your colour concepts.
Our design team can provide you with an extensive range of options, colours, fabrics, styles and lighting effects...the choices are all yours!
It doesnt get much simpler than repetition of a custom designed modular walkway system.
You can have a single cantilever, double cantilever or poles either side. The roof can be toughened glass, fabric or profile metal. You can integrate bus stops, pedestrian links, seating areas, taxi bays, doorway entrance awnings - all with the same look. All lighting cables can be hidden within the slender structural membres and the rainwater can be collected from the roof area with downpipes concelled in the columns if you choose.
Covered walways are a great way to control pedestrian flow paths without blocking any veiws and similtaneously protecting the patrons from the elements. They can complement and enhance existing architecture or can create a new look with a unique aesthetic impact.
You decide what you need and how you want it to look and we will work within the parameters of the construction elements. We will work with you to acheive an entirely successful result. It's that easy!
