Accolades keep rolling in for Abacus Shade Structures

Abacus Shade Structures delivers award winning shade structures for this cutting edge community playground at Ryde Outdoor Youth Space in Meadowbank. Our quality and designs are second to none and recognition from our piers speaks for itself.

Shade Structures - Ryde Outdoor Youth Space Award Winner.
Once again Abacus Shade Structures has proved it is the leading shade structure company in Australia after winning yet another National Industry Award. At a glittering event where more than 5,000 textile industry representatives attended SuperExpo19 on the Gold Coast Queensland,  Abacus Shade Structures took out the Australian Specialised Textiles Association Award in the most hotly contested award category - Shade Structure to 250sm. 
This award continues an unbroken record of winning awards for shade structures for our company since 2006. No other shade structure company withing 1,000kms can attest to such a record streak.
Eric Moonen, the Director of Abacus Shade Structures was overjoyed. He paid special tribute to the loyal team at Abacus who contributed to this glorious result.  It is testament to the skills that are available right here in Australia and in Western Sydney.
He said,  "It was a complex and innovative project which made me rethink shade structure design in a completely different way. At Abacus we think outside the box and relish innovation. We don't keep still and are already working on the next challenge for the 2020 awards"   
Project Summary
Three unique hexagonal tension structures of 40sm each add innovation and style to a new playground in Sydney. The client Ryde Council, is developing magnificent playgrounds. This playground incorporates cutting edge shade structures, gardens, play equipment &  massive skating bowls. Clearly Council is supporting their community with such initiatives to support local youth.
Eric Moonen said "We knew we were onto a good thing when other tradies nearby who work on playgrounds all the time stopped to admire and photograph the structures."  The PVC membrane is Valmex Mehatop N in white with white painted steel posts and stainless steel fittings.
