SHADE SAILS & STRUCTURES NEW ZEALAND
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.
It is well documented that New Zealand has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world. Currently, there are 2,500 new cases of melanoma reported each year in our country – that’s 7 a day!
Shade sails add elegance and style to any setting. Custom-designed, we can make shade sails to practically any soaring form you dare to dream. Multiple shade sails can interact or overlap one another.
Whether you’re at home, school, work or on holiday – the option to hang out in the shade makes life that much cooler – if you’ll forgive the pun! Lidgard Shades is dedicated to making your experience more comfortable all year round.
The Lidgard Difference
Simply put, not all shades are created equal. Lidgard was one of the very first companies to commence manufacturing and installation of shade sails in New Zealand nigh on 20 years ago.
Drawing on a proud history of yacht sail design and manufacture, the team has a deep and fundamental understanding of nature’s forces.
The superior quality of a Lidgard shade sail is reflected in the following:
High Quality Fabric
We use only the finest quality shade cloths offering the highest overall UV block out, 10 year manufacturer’s warranties and meet industry fire retardant standards.
When investing in a waterproof shade sail, we use top quality, lightweight pre-tensioned PVC materials that endure without sagging and bagging over time.
Any other threat simply doesn’t cut it. The PTFE threads we use are warranted even longer than the shade cloth.
When properly maintained, you’ll not find our seams, edges or webbing tear or fray.
Perimeter Stainless Steel Wire
The perimeter wire supports the even tensioning throughout the shade sail and assists with the tensioning through the belly of the sail.
Poles and Fixings
Fundamental to a successful shade sail installation is knowing that whatever it is fixed to can support the load. Our shade sail installations are rated to withstand wind forces up to Gale force.
When installing poles, galvanised steel or timber, it is important to size the pole appropriately and ensure that the depth and size of the footing is adequate relative to its height above ground and the size of the shade sail being hung from it.
All our fixings are made of marine grade 300-series stainless steel.
10 – 15 years manufacturer’s warranty on shade fabrics, 3 years warranty on all workmanship.
We can proudly state that no Lidgard shade sail installation has failed in our 20 years in the industry. Do it once, do it right!
