Shade sails for carports and driveways
Our carport and driveway shade sails provide valuable protection for your vehicles from the harsh Australian weather. Providing a cover for your car, bike, trailer or caravan means that the vehicle is kept shaded and cool, plus has year-round protection from weather extremes such as harmful UV rays and hailstones. Installing one of our carport or driveway shade sails is a cost effective way of providing cover for vehicles.
From a single car carport to a multi-vehicle area, we can find the right shade sail for the job. We have a range of carport shade fabrics and post colours to complement your existing building façade, adding street appeal and value, as well as increasing the usable indoor space of your home.
How to install a shade sail:
We can provide a complete shade sail instillation service or we can work with you to provide assistance. It is important to check prior to installation for any relevant building regulations with your local Council.
Our shade sails can be attached to existing structures (secure points) on houses, carports, trees or where this is not possible, steel or wooden poles can be used. This stage of the installation is critical. You should ensure that all fixing points are structurally sound and if unsure, obtain advice from a shade sail installation expert or a builder.
There is an extensive range of fixing accessories available to help you secure your shade sail. These accessories are readily available from your normal hardware supplier and may include ropes or chain to extend your shade sail to a fixing point if required.
Why install a shade sail
The harsh Australian weather has made owning a shade sail a necessity, not a luxury. Shade sails allow us to enjoy the sun without the danger of being exposed to harmful UV rays. They even serve as protection for the things we own, like our cars and caravans and require little maintenance but are very durable.
Our shade sails will allow you to simply enjoy the outdoors. They are so effective that they have been made mandatory in some places like city councils, schools and kindergartens. Shade sails have become a part of our way of life.
Our shade sails are affordable and a superior alternative to gazebos, patio covers and pergolas. Choosing the right kind of sail is very important and here at Shade Sails Adelaide, we can help you find the right sail for your needs.
