Information about Materials Used


Custom Shade Structures (CSS) only uses the highest quality fabrics for tension membrane and shade cloth structures. It is the quality of the fabric which endows the structure with impact factor and environmental qualities as well as longevity and durability.

Our years of industry experience and knowledge lead us to recommend and use Ferrari vinyl cloth and Gale Commercial 430 shade cloth.

Steel Protection

A number of methods of protection of the steel used in shade structures is available. In the harsh Australian weather conditions, including having a coastal apect, steel protection ensures longevity of the structure over generations.

Custom Shade Structures (CSS) employs two options for steel protection: hot-dip galvanising or the application of a TWO-PAK coating of your choice of colour. Choice of method is usually based on creative and/or budgetary considerations. It should be noted that, depending on the nature of the project and the type of steel used, the differences in cost between the two methods may be minimal.
