Shade Sails

Outdoor area too hot? Need to protect your kids from UV exposure? Straitline™ 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™ guarantees the workmanship on our Shade Sails for the life of the Shade Sail.

You are welcome to source and install poles yourself. Please follow our recommended pole specifcations, available for download below.

Waterproof Shade Sails

We use Ferrari 502 Shade PVC for our Waterproof Shade Sails. Click here for colour options and more information on Ferrari 502 PVC.

Please contact us today to arrange a visit from one of our team. We can assess whether your area would be suitable for a Waterproof Shade Sail. Note Waterproof Shade Sails require at least 30% fall (i.e. 300mm of fall for every 1 metre of distance, so a 4m shade sail would require 1.2m of fall).
