Custom Shade Sail Designs and Installation
Not only do Coastwide Shade Sails on the Gold Coast offer protection and reduce the heat underneath them they are often a worthwhile investment to a home adding value and appeal.
From the street, a shade sail that covers a driveway can afford an aesthetic look that compliments the front of the house and provide the visual effect of making your property look larger. Of course, the primary benefit is to protect your valuable cars underneath from the harsh South East Queensland heat and adverse weather and this they do exceptionally well at a fraction of the cost of a fixed structural carport or patio roof.
Similarly around a verandah, over an entertainment area, pool or playground Coastwide Shade Sails not only look impressive but they give the ability to enjoy the outdoor areas of your home in the comfort and safety of cooler ambient temperatures while protecting from harmful UV rays so often associated with the Gold Coast.
Typically the shade fabric we use is a commercial grade knitted cloth manufactured using a combination of high-density monofilament and tape. It is suitable for tension structures and other heavy-duty applications. Depending on colour our shade sail fabric offers up to 99% UV-R protection and with their high tensile strength have proven durable and long-lasting. The fabric we use has a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty and is tested to Australian Standards AS4174-1994.
