Installation of shade sails?

Unfortunately, no we cannot install shade sails or shade canopies but we can supply a ready to go DIY for those who like to do things themselves.

There’s a huge range of materials and colours to choose from these days, from shade-cloth and waterproof shade-cloth to vinyls so depending on the project, a material and a range of colours to choose from, from the standard green most of us know to vibrant oranges, pinks and even chocolate.

Important: An installer of shade sails and canopies must hold a Q.B.C.C. builders license.

The state building code says that; shade sails or shade canopies are a 10a structure (the same as a shed or patio roof) and if over 10m2 or attached to the dwelling (house) or over a medium height of 2.1m a building approval will be required. You only need to trigger one of these three things and a building approval is required.

Engineering is a fundamental part of shade sails and shade canopies due to the different environments they are installed to and of course the many different designs that are available. Engineering is part of the council approval process if you trigger a building application. Structural design drawings, Form 15, Form 16 and Form 21 are all part of this process.
