Our shade sail project portfolio is widespread and varied and has taken us to locations right across Australia. From Early Learning Centres and After School Care shades projects to large-scale council and commercial shade projects, we can help find the perfect shade sail solution for your project.



There are many essential elements that go into developing shade solutions for early education that are specific to the childcare and kindergarten sector. Our expert team have an in depth knowledge of all aspects of these projects including Government certifications, accessing time of use shading, determining shade ratios and areas per child as well as identifying high usage areas and coverage requirements. Central Shade is a recognised specialist in this area having supplied and installed shade solutions to some of Australia’s largest childcare operators as well as numerous schools and pre-schools across the country.

Parks and playgrounds are an integral part of every community. To ensure maximum use of these areas, it is essential for local councils to provide safe an adequate shading to protect visitors both young and old. Our carefully designed shade solutions take into account all necessary factors such as equipment clearances, time of usage, vandalism resistance and also importantly their aesthetic appeal.

Here are just some of the shade sail installations in parks and playgrounds that we have worked on around Australia.

Public pools are a significant asset for local councils and providing correctly designed and installed shading vastly increases their benefit to the community.  At Central Shade we have retractable and removable designs available for installation in cyclone prone areas, including motorized units to assist in the assembly and dismantling of sails and structures.

Sails and structures are available in shade membranes for splashpads and pool coverage. Waterproof versions are also available for grandstands and marshalling areas. Our work on pools and aquatic centres varies greatly. Take a look at the options available to find the right solution for your project.

As well as looking good, correctly designed and installed shade sails in schools and universities helps to provide a safe outdoor environment for students that encourages learning. We pride ourselves on providing correctly designed and installed shade sail solutions in primary, high schools and universities. Our innovative designs provide students with additional areas for stimulus and learning outside of the classroom.

"Outstanding dedication and commitment"

Central Industries completed a project for us in St Leonards involving shade sails, sandpit covers and even climbing ropes, which has been a standout in the Childcare Sector and has been nominated for a number of awards. Their dedication and commitment to the project was outstanding.
