Shadeports are a uniquely designed hip-roof shade structure that provide low-maintenance and cost effective UV protection. The hip-roof frame has a natural strength inherent by design, allowing for minimal member sizes while still maintaining durability. Shadport’s can also be joined together by sharing common support posts, which together with its robust design, forms a very affordable shading solution. These features make the Shadeport a perfect fit for a wide variaty of external applications.

These include:

  • Council Reserves
  • School Playgrounds
  • Childcare Centres
  • Recreation & Play Areas
  • Sport Centres
  • Swimming Pools
  • Sandpits
  • Car Parking Areas

Each Shadeport is fully compliant with the current DECS policy requirements for shade structures. All Shadeports are engineer designed to comply with South Australian Building Codes and independently certified. The steel frames have a 10 year structural guarantee and are fabricated from corrosion resistant galvanised Australian Steel. Optional powder-coating provides a colourful, tough, and extremely durable finish. Contemporary Shadecloth fabrics are available in a wide range of colours providing up to 98% UV-B protection.
