Our shade and waterproof sails and structures are engineered to last. Designs for shade sails may be eye catchingly stunning or purely functional.  A shade structure may consist of a single structure or many sails in a pattern. Shade sails epitomise modern style with clean lines and crisp fabrics. Modern processing techniques and fabrics offer great design opportunities. Shade structures and shade sails have practical roles - to protect young skin from sun, provide outdoor comfort to club patrons or to cover machinery. Uses for shade structures are endless. Shade structure designs are open to the imagination - a shell, a wave or even a butterfly are possible.   

Abacus Shade Structures manufactures shade sails, shade awnings, sun screens, privacy screens, custom tarpaulins, builders tarps and equipment covers. Look at the possibilities in designs and their uses. Then contact us to turn your ideas into reality. We hope you enjoy browsing our site.
