Waterproof Shade Sails

Waterproof Shade Cloth, Coastwide Waterproof Shade Sails from Gold Coast are essentially just that, ‘waterproof’. That is to say that water does not penetrate through the sail rather it just rolls off. We use two very different fabrics in this application; ‘Rainbow DriZ’ and polyester coated PVC (manufactured by several suppliers). This page will look at ‘Rainbow DriZ’.

‘Rainbow DriZ’ is shade fabric with a waterproof membrane over one side. It consists of a high-density polyethylene knitted shade fabric, with a low-density polyethylene coating. The coating which is on the underside prevents water from penetrating thus not only protecting from up to 99% UV-R and reducing the temperature beneath it also protects from the rain.


Waterproof Shade Cloth, this product has been proven by over twelve years of installations on the Gold Coast and surrounds by Coastwide Shade Sails. The advantage of this fabric is its versatility, lightweight and myriad of colour choices. Like regular shade sails, waterproof shade sails are not only functional but they look good and ad value to your property.
