Shade sails are made up of two separate components, the post or frame, and the sails or canopy. We design and manufacture both components at our site on the Gold Coast. Shade sails can be designed to accommodate almost any application that requires shade and/or protection from weather.
Posts or frames are used as the structure for most applications involving shade sails or canopies in both commercial and domestic uses. Our posts and frames are custom made from galvanised steel to the exact specifications required for each individual job. Posts are made to accommodate the size and height of the shade sail or canopy design.
We paint all our frames and posts with one coat of ultra-etch primer followed by powder coating in colour of your choice.
Our shade cloth is available in many types of materials making our range suitable for virtually any application and environment. Our options are Rainbow Z-16 Shade Cloth,HVG solar block & extra block flame retardant shade cloth

Thank you to the staff at Anthony Shade Sails. We're delighted with our new shade sail that was installed this week. The whole process was very easy and the turn around from quote to installation was very quick. The two installers that attended our job are a credit to your company, they were polite, happy, did not muck around, and got on with the job. The house looks totally different and modern. We love the outcome. Thanks again! - By
Anthony Shade Sails were fantastic. Showed up on time and completed a site check and designed a solution for our beach house that was complimentary to the structure. Price was very reasonable . The work was completed on time. Custom made shade sails are not do it yourself types. My wife and I couldn't have been happier with the quality and design. Quality product.
