“They still look as great as the day they went up!”

This was the comment principal Ian Dickinson passed, when we visited the site over a year later for a further project.

Shade Systems are really thankful for the relationship they have with Ian and his team. We were approached in early 2016 to assist with a shade solution over two playground areas, in which we provided a number of design options for them to consider, budget depending. Further consultation with Ian and his team they agreed that the HyparShade Sail design was the preferred option. Longevity of the shades was important to them so they opted for our premium Australian made fabric, Monotec 370 which carries a 15-year warranty.

Other factor’s our design team considered included the sail edge detail and ensuring the sails were safe from vandals. Our unique webbing style edges and corner configuration was a must, to ensure that there was absolute minimal wear and tear. Initially we also considered vandal proof spikes, however the choice was made to lift the height of the steel poles to ensure access was much harder. To this day the structure has been free from any vandal damage.

Gaining a complete understanding of our client’s requirements before we make a recommendation is essential and our duty. We thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration with Pigeon Mountain School, and with Ian still raving about the durability of his shade sail structure, we know we have exceeded his expectations.
