Shade Systems: New Zealand’s Shade, Shelter and Fabric Structure Specialists
At Shade Systems, we empower our customers to better utilize their outside spaces – come rain or shine.
We love the outdoors. Given the chance, you’ll find us enjoying the fresh air at home, work, school and play. Therefore, we know you need shade or shelter for protection from the harsh summer sun or long wet winters.
A family-owned company, with over 150 years combined experience in industrial fabrics and steel structures, our aim is simple: Create healthy spaces to protect and improve the well-being of current and future generations whatever the weather. We do this by providing them with shade and shelter structures that also enhance the appearance of their outdoor spaces. Our custom designed shade solutions and a wide range of materials will ensure you get the most effective and aesthetic shade shelter.
Designed to protect everyone from the elements, our fabric structure systems provide plenty of headroom and minimal framework, thereby allowing a sense of openness undercover. Our shading structures are manufactured from the highest quality materials and offer the best technical protection from the elements that are available on the market today.
In addition, we offer design, manufacturing, installation and servicing of shade, shelter and fabric structures. Our dedicated team oversees the complete project management, from planning to installation of your shade structure. Our products include a huge line of innovative shading products, custom-made to suit council requirements.

St Mark’s Catholic School
October 31, 2018
St Mark’s School spent years saving for a school hall but could never reach the mark to make it happen. We too often hear this story from our clients. Those that make the switch to a COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area), never look back or regret the decision. These flexible learning areas are perfectly suited for the education space. School Principal Catherine Rivers tells us: ‘the COLA “Was the obvious choice, and it actually has probably given us more choices’.

"Just wanted to touch base and say how great the sails look. Was at school this evening so had a chance to check them out and from every angle they are fabulous and just in time for the hot weather we are having, so thanks for pushing that along before originally expected. Was a pleasure dealing with you during the initial consultation, so thank you for all your time and effort."
Paula Vitali - PTA Member, St Joseph's Catholic School Takapuna
"Just a short note to say the canopy was unaffected by the storm despite trees at the school giving way left right and centre and the school closing for 2 days! All credit to your design and construction team! Thanks again."
Andrew Steele, BOT - Three Kings School

Shade Equals Safer Spaces
It is well-known that high numbers of New Zealanders suffer from Melanoma because of harmful UV rays from the sun. Our shade structures offer protection from these rays, keeping New Zealanders more sun safe.
Looking ahead, our vision is to help improve and enhance the health and quality of our customers’ lives. We aim to do this by creating shade systems that our clients can use for generations and also through supporting Melanoma New Zealand, an organisation who research and develop ways to cure UV related skin cancers.
