Benefits of shades and sails at Warrnambool Shade & Blinds

Long lasting for high traffic areas

Fabrics are made of strong round monofilament yarn, combined with a close lock-stitch construction. This gives it a high resistance to rot, breaking, and even vandalism so your sails and shades will look newer and last longer. Especially when your grounds are accessible after hours.

Wide range of designs and colours

Complement the architecture of your building by choosing the right design and colour. Your experienced consultant can give you advice about what types of shades and sails will suit your environment, needs, and budget.

Safe materials

Fabrics used are manufactured from the finest materials with stringent processes that are certified and tested at every stage of production. Materials are fire-resistant, tear resistant, windproof, and SunSmart with up to 97% UV protection.

High quality stainless steel and galvanized steel are used to give your shade or sail strength, durability, and stability so people stay safe.

Frequently asked questions

Is there a longer lasting shadecloth? (for replacements)

Our expert consultant will visit your site for a free measure and discuss options. The technology of materials has come a long way over the past few years. Your choice of materials will be stronger, vandal resistant, weatherproof, and SunSmart.

Is the material tear resistant?

Yes. But installation is also important. Our professional installers will make sure your sail or shade tension is nice and flat (tight) so it doesn’t flap around in the wind. This is especially important along the windy coastal areas. The more a sail or shade flaps around in the wind, the more likely it is to tear.

Will it give us full blockout?

Yes. We recommend canvas as it gives better sun protection than other materials. Advancements in material technology also reduce heat underneath the sail or shade.

What locations do you service?

We’ll head out to you anywhere up to 2 hours from Warrnambool, including Casterton, Portland, and Colac.
