Every year it is becoming more and more important to provide shaded areas for our children.

Horizon Sailmakers have been designing and installing Shade Sails and awning systems for Australian schools, universities, child care centres and pre-schools for over twenty years.

Special design consideration is given to ensure necessary shade and weather protection whilst promoting desired outdoor ambience.

Shade structures from a range of materials in a multitude of colours, and can be both porous or waterproof. Our designers will certainly be able to offer you the best possible solution.

Shade sails can be used in a variety of ways and some of the more common uses include:
  • School quadrangles
  • Basketball and Netball courts
  • Outdoor pools
  • Outdoor walkways joining classrooms
  • Children's’ play equipment
  • Creating undercover malls between buildings

There are very rarely ‘standard’ requirements, construction issues and designs. Therefore take time to understand your needs before using our expertise to develop a proposal that best serves them.

A great deal of work is involved in this process, and it important that our clients understand the importance of this phase. Although we charge a nominal fee, this is included and taken out of the costs of going forward.

However, we are happy to provide phone estimates prior to site assessment so call us on (03) 9598-4666 to arrange an estimate or a site assessment today.
