Savannah

Quality Shade Sails
for the Australian backyard

Step 1 - Select Product
Sails made for Australian homes
Australia is exposed to some of the highest levels of UV in
the world. Savannah shade sails protect your home from UV
exposure while providing a safe and cool environment to
entertain guests or allow children to play outside. We have
a fantastic range of styles and colours, all designed with the
harsh Australian climate in mind.

Depending on which product you select, your installation
will include at least four anchoring points. Roof brackets and
facia brackets are attached to your house at different heights,
while galvanised steel posts are anchored in the ground using
a concrete foundation. Sails are attached to each anchoring
point using a stainless steel turnbuckle.

Roof brackets are fixed to the A-frame in a regular
Australian roof truss. Dektite flashing is used to
protect your roof from leaks.

Facia brackets are fixed to the rafter and are hidden
behind the facia itself, revealing only the eye-bolt to
which the sail is attached.

Flinders

Hamilton

Sorrento

The Flinders is ideal for
protecting a small patio,
deck or entertainment area
adjacent to your home. The
single 4-point sail is attached
to the frame of your roof and
extends to two galvanised
posts.

The Hamilton is designed for
homes with a small patio,
deck or children’s play area
that is set away from the
house. With four posts, it is
also suitable for homes that
do not have a typical A-frame
roof structure to which a sail
can be anchored.

Traditional shade sails with a twist
Anchoring points are installed at different heights to create
a twist in the sail once tension is applied. If four posts are
used, each pair of diagonally opposite posts are the same
height. If a roof and facia bracket are used the roof bracket,
which sits higher up than the facia bracket, is installed diagonally opposite from the taller post to create the same effect.
In an installation where roof and facia brackets are used, 3.5 metre
posts are installed diagonally opposite from roof brackets, while 2.5
metre posts are installed opposite the facia brackets.

Creating a twist in the sail improves shower resistance by
allowing water to run off the sail, while also creating the
sleek look that makes a Savannah shade sail so iconic. When
multiple sails are used, the central posts feature two anchoring points set at 2.5m and 3.5m so that the sails provide as
much coverage as possible.
Posts come in two heights, which are used to create
a twist effect in the sail by anchoring diagonally
opposite corners of the sail at the same height.

Shade sails are fabricated to the exact measurements
required for your installation, ensuring that the
largest possible area of shade is provided.

Barossa

Lorne

Noosa

The Barossa is designed for
homes with a medium size
patio, deck or entertainment
area located adjacent to
the house. The 5-point sail
is attached to the frame of
your roof at two points and
extends to three galvanised
posts.

The Lorne is ideal for homes
with a large outdoor entertainment area located adjacent to the house. The two
4-point sails are attached to
the frame of your roof and
extend to three galvanised
posts.

The Noosa is ideal for homes
with a large patio, deck or
children’s play area that is
set away from the house.
With six free-standing posts
it is also suitable for homes
which do not have a typical
A-frame roof structure, to
which sails can be anchored.

Step 2 – Select post finish
Quality that is second to none
From the galvanised steel posts to the stainless steel
fixtures and fittings, our entire product range is produced
using the best quality materials available.

We rely on Australian suppliers that have proven the quality of
their work over many years of service to our community. The
quality of our product is our trademark, and we protect it
above all else.

The galvanised posts used in all our products resist
corrosion damage cause by exposure and rising moisture

316 marine grade stainless steel fixtures
and fittings prevent corrosion and provide
superior resistance to wear and tear
All paints and materials used are specially-designed
to withstand the harsh Australian climate

It’s all in the finish
Our posts and brackets are available in four stylish finishes,
designed to complement the colour schemes of both classic
and contemporary Australian homes.
Choose from three stylish Colorbond® finishes including Night
Sky, Woodland Grey and Classic Cream, or you can opt to retain the original galvanised steel finish for a distinctly modern
look.

Step 3 – Select sail colour
Designed for Australian homes
We understand the importance of style, which is why we
have developed a range of materials and colours to suit
both contemporary and traditional Australian architecture — from a heritage property to a modern estate, and
everything in between.

Our products are designed to suit all domestic settings and
purposes, including swimming pools, deckings, BBQ areas,
playgrounds, driveways and outdoor entertainment areas.

To ensure the longest possible life for your shade sail,
we use exclusively commercial-grade cloth and non-UV
degrading thread. The shade cloth offers 93-98% UV
protection and comes with a 10-year UV warranty.
The hidden tension webbing in the hem is designed to
withstand the stress caused by wind pressure over the
lifetime of the sail. 316 marine grade stainless steel
fixtures and fittings are used instead of cheaper
alternatives, to minimise deterioration and eliminate
the risk of erosion.
All our posts and brackets are produced from
galvanised steel to prevent corrosion caused by
rising moisture, even when a powder coated
finish is selected. In combination, these
features effectively double the lifetime of
each product in our range.

Installation Process
Step 1: On-site inspection
One of our design consultants will visit your home to discuss your plans and confirm the details of
your installation, including material and colour choices. We also inspect the structure of your house to
ensure the installation will be problem free.

Step 2: Post and bracket installation
During our second visit all posts and brackets are installed so that we can take precise measurements for
the fabrication of your sail. This process also allows the concrete used to install your posts to set properly
before tension is applied.

Step 3: Sail fabrication and installation
Your sail is then custom-fabricated and installed during a final visit. Our installation process is
designed to ensure a perfect fit, eliminating the need to use long chains to extend the corners of
each sail and maximising the shade provided by your sail.
