Shade sails represent one of the most comprehensive and cost effective solutions for providing protection from the sun’s harmful UV radiation and excessive heat.
They add a great aesthetic and visual interest to the environment also.
As an industry leader, Lidgard has been making shade sails in New Zealand for 20 years. Our motto: “Do it once, do it right!”
Highest Quality Fabrics offering the highest overall UV block out, dimensional stability and are fire retardant. For water proof shade sails, we use top quality, lightweight pre-tensioned architectural PVC materials
UV stable PTFE Thread. Any other thread simply doesn’t cut it.
Perimeter stainless steel wire. Our shade sails have stainless steel wire, crimped at each corner to support optimal tensioning of the shade sail, reducing the potential for sag in the belly of the shade.
Poles and fixings. Fundamental to a successful shade sail installation is knowing that whatever it is fixed to can support the load. Appropriate engineering is vital.
Our shade sail installations are rated to withstand wind forces up to Gale force.
All our fixings are made of marine grade 300-series stainless steel.
Each Lidgard shade sail enjoys a 5 year warranty on workmanship; a 10 year warranty on materials.
