Coolaroo 1.8 x 3m Graphite 90+%UV People Cover HD Shade Cloth
As summer scorches, shady spots become prized places to sit and chill. But to thrive through summer, you need shade and sun protection – not always the same thing. Coolaroo offers both; plus, theirs are the only shade products endorsed by the Cancer Council.
Shade sails are an economical and flexible way to create shade. Use one to instantly turn a patio into a desirable place to hang or provide much needed protection – up to 95 per cent UV block – to a kids' play space.
Though easy to install, a shade sail is far from a temporary patch job; it's actually designed as a permanent solution, with a 15-year warranty to back it up.
If you already have the framework, like a pergola, it's even easier to cool things down by throwing over some shade cloth. This durable DIY solution lets heat escape and blissfully cool breezes filter through.
In summer, there's plenty of heat in the late afternoon sun. For this, there's no better solution than outdoor roller blinds.
Choose crank operation, easy release or motorised blinds, which operate with solar power, so there's no hardwiring required.
A simple market umbrella will never go out of style, or try a cantilevered version – with 360° rotation. Coolaroo's cantilevered umbrellas can be swivelled to give you constant shade as the sun moves through the sky.
All the umbrella options help protect your family's skin with UPF50+ fabric, the highest possible sun protection rating.
