A retractable shade system to protect you from the sun


With an enviable position on the waterfront, this lovely home in Bundall on the Gold Coast enjoys direct access to the canal, and features a fantastic raised terrace for relaxing and entertaining.

To provide welcome shade, protection from the sun and maximise use of this space, a fully retractable Shaderunner® shade system was installed which extends along the rear elevation of the house over the entertaining area.

The Shaderunner® Retractable Shade System is ideally suited for a range of applications around the home, from outdoor entertaining spaces, patios to swimming pool and courtyards. With a wide range of fabrics and colour options available, the Shaderunner® complements all architectural styles, from contemporary suburban homes to traditional country residences. The owners of this stunning home selected ‘Outlook Greystone’ which features a 10 year warranty and up to 95% UV protection.

Most Shaderunners® feature an easy to use manually operated endless cord system but increasing in popularity is the option to have remote motorised control. For this application motorised operation was selected, featuring a durable Somfy motor housed in a slimline powdercoated headbox. For the ultimate convenience, a simple to use remote controller is used to extend and retract the Shaderunner as and when required. If required, further automated control can be provided by the addition of sun or wind sensors to extend or retract the Shaderunners during weather events.

The Shaderunner® Retractable Shade is constructed using only the most durable marine grade yacht fittings and Ronstan ball bearing pulleys, ensuring years of trouble free shading with minimal maintenance. The Shaderunner® is manufactured from a range of rigorously tested fabrics, from 95% Polyester Mesh to Waterproof PVC. Each fabric is mould resistant and offers protection from glare and the sun’s harmful rays, with a wide range of colours available. The unique qualities of Shaderunner® enable it to be utilised for a multitude of applications, from the smallest domestic setting right up to large span commercial projects, such as aquatic parks and hotels.

With distributors available in each state, the Shaderunner® is available throughout Australia. Why not contact Shaderunner® Australia today to discuss your residential or commercial project?
