Polyedge shade structures are freeform structures with 5 or more connection points. Alternating high and low attachment points creates a unique 3D shape across the fabric surface maintaining the tension and allows water to run off the surface.

Polyedges generally have minimal steel support structure, taking advantage of the fabrics ability to span large distances, without the need for regular supporting beams like conventional buildings. Polyedge structures can incorporate continuous strapped sealed edges to provide waterproofing over doors and building sides.

One of our latest freeform polyedge shade sail structures was designed, manufactured and installed by Shade to Order for a residential property on Lake Macquarie.


The owners have maximised their outdoor alfresco area by installing a custom-made impressive shade sail structure. Positioned right on the waterfront at Morisset Park this area is complemented by stunning lake views but also receives high winds. One of our engineered and heavy-duty shade sail structures was required and will withstand cyclonic winds and last decades.


This outdoor alfresco canopy/awning is a magnificent addition to their already opulent home and will keep them cooler and healthier in the summer months and dry all year round.


This stunning shade sail structure has a 20-year warranty and is manufactured from the highest quality architectural PVC fabric, hot dipped galvanised steel and 365 stainless steel catenary wires for ultra-corrosive protection.
