Outdoor area too hot? Need to protect your kids from UV exposure? Straitline Canvas has decades of experience manufacturing Shade Sails for the Manawatu climate. We custom design each Shade Sail to suit your needs. We use the chain & shackles tensioning system, for easy installation and to avoid binding issues common with turnbuckles.
We use Australian-made Shadetex Shade Mesh, available in 370 Premium or 320 Standard grade. Shadetex reduces UV exposure by 85-95% and comes with a 15 year (370) or 10 year (320) UV guarantee.
All our shade sails are made using UV-resistant PTFE thread, guaranteed to resist UV for the life of the fabric. Straitline Canvas guarantees the workmanship on our Shade Sails for the life of the Shade Sail.
