Contemporary shade solutions

A contemporary solution for providing protection from the sun. Many different styles, colours and shapes ensure that you can utilise any area as well as have them look aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

Shade sails are a very effective way of providing cool shaded areas whilst keeping play spaces free from obstructions.

Shade sails offer high UV protection in order to keep children safe from the damaging effects of the sun, whilst allowing air to circulate underneath.

“It was really great to sit down with Playcubed. They have lots of ideas, lots of really exciting apparatus that we could incorporate. The best thing is that they’re experienced – they have experience in creating the most amazing environments for pupils. The children love their new playground. They can’t wait to get into school in the morning and come out to play!”

We make our specialist shade cloth using 100% round monofilament HDPE yarns, and all backed by a 15 year warranty. The sturdy fabric construction will not stretch over time. In addition, it offers up to 96% protection against UV rays and 95% shade protection. They’ve also been wind tested to a rating of 200km/h and is fire-rated to AS 1530.02 standards. Thanks to the reinforced corners and edges and the close lock-stitch construction it’s difficult to penetrate the fabric with damaging objects.
