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.

Childcare Centres

 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 & Playgrounds

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.

Swimming Pools & Aquatic Centres

Perhaps the most obvious place where shade is required
– Municipal pools are a high value asset for Local
Government, and shading correctly designed and installed
increases the community benefit. We have retractable and
removable designs suitable for installation in cyclone prone
areas, including motorized units to assist in the dismantling
and erection of sails and structures. Sails and structures are
available in shade membranes for splashpads and pool
coverage, and waterproof versions for grandstands and
marshalling areas

Schools & Universities

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.
