Shade sails - commercial

Shade Sails for Commercial Projects

When it comes to shading solutions, SunGuard leads the industry with our meticulously crafted shade sails. We understand that each space has its own distinct characteristics, which is why our shade sails are custom-designed to seamlessly integrate into your environment. Whether it’s shading a bustling restaurant patio or a peaceful kindergarten playground, our shade sails provide optimal coverage and protection, enhancing the overall appeal of your space.

At the core of SunGuard’s shade sail innovations is a dedication to customization. Utilizing tensioned High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and membrane fabric, our sails are precision-engineered to match your specifications. With CAD software and smart fittings ensuring optimal installation, our shade sails are built to withstand even the harshest outdoor conditions.

Our commitment to quality extends to every aspect of our shade sails, including the sewing thread. Featuring PTFE sewing thread for enduring seam strength, our sails are designed to last for years to come. We source commercial-grade shade fabrics that offer up to 99% UVR block, providing unparalleled sun protection while maintaining optimal light and airflow.

For heavy-duty waterproof applications, we offer Serge Ferrari Soltis 502 fabric, renowned for its durability and ease of maintenance. Plus, our shade sails are proudly manufactured right here in New Zealand, allowing us to maintain strict quality control and support local industries.

With SunGuard, you can rest assured knowing that your investment in outdoor infrastructure is backed by industry-best warranties of up to 15 years. And our comprehensive installation solutions, including galvanized steel posts and precise Hydro Excavation techniques, ensure stability and longevity without disrupting your outdoor space.

Awnings - Commercial

Fixed Frame and Retractable Awnings for Commercial Shade Projects

At SunGuard, we specialize in providing high-quality fixed frame and retractable awnings tailored to your business needs. While both options are suitable for establishments like restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, and more, they serve different purposes. Our made-to-measure awnings are proudly crafted in New Zealand, ensuring superior quality and durability for your commercial space.

SunGuard’s waterproof fixed frame awnings are essential for businesses seeking dependable weather protection for doorways, windows, and shopfronts. Crafted with durable European made waterproof fabric, they offer durability and functionality while seamlessly integrating with your desired aesthetic. Tailored stylish canopies, available in various shapes and sizes, offer a personalized solution for your specific weather protection needs.

The optional sign writing feature is beneficial for businesses, enabling you to display your logo, shop name, or product/service details. With optional sign writing capabilities and powder-coated frames available in various colours, they also serve as effective promotional tools, enhancing visibility and drawing more customers.

For those looking for versatility and ease of use, our retractable awnings are the perfect choice. Designed for hassle-free operation and installation, they cover large areas, providing excellent heat reduction and UV protection for your patrons. With over 100 colours to choose from, including plains and stripes, you can find the perfect match for your establishment’s aesthetic. Our retractable awnings are sturdy, reliable, and custom-made to fit your specific requirements.

Crafted with premium rust-free aluminium, retractable awnings from SunGuard boast a sleek design that eliminates bulky supporting poles, providing a modern look for your commercial shade project. Drizzle protection ensures added comfort for your patrons, allowing them to enjoy the outdoors in any weather condition. Plus, with the option to print your logo or brand on the awnings, you can further enhance your business’s visibility and branding.

Please note that while our retractable awnings offer excellent protection in most weather conditions, they are not waterproof and are not recommended for use in heavy rain or very windy conditions. For rainproof solutions, we recommend exploring our fixed frame awnings for optimal protection.

With various fabric opacities available, you can achieve the perfect balance between airflow and sun protection to suit your space’s unique requirements. Customize the outdoor blinds with your logo or branding to establish a distinctive ambiance that embodies your establishment’s identity.

Top pelmets and flashings are available for a polished finish. Installation is a breeze with Omni Screens, mounted on two brackets that can be fixed onto the wall, beam, or soffit. Similar to a simple interior roller blind, Omni is ideal for self-installation, making it a convenient choice for DIY enthusiasts.

With no gaps between fabric and side posts, they offer up to 99% wind and waterproofing with clear, tinted, or opaque PVC material.
