    Building/house Anchor Points

    Where suitable, Shade Sails can be attached to your building or house using metal plates, which are directly attached to brick wall corners (suitable for smaller structures).

    Eyebolts through the fascia allow cables to be attached to the roof structure and roof posts.

    This type of fitting can create extra height and enhance the number of design possibilities.

    Hip and Ridge

    Canopy-style shade structures are ideal for childcare centers and kindergartens when placed over play equipment, sand pits and open areas.

    These structures can span verry large areas and offer maximum shade, with the perimeter kept quite low, while the centre frame can be set high to create clearance for obstacles.
