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
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.
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
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.
