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. We also offer Extrablock 330, which offers maximum UV protection - reducing UV exposure by 96-98% - and comes with a 12 year 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.

Full service installation available - shade sails and poles. We service Palmerston North, Manawatu, and Whanganui.

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