Make your home comfortable all year round with this retractable shading


The team at Shaderunner Australia are currently experiencing their busiest year to date, and with distributors in every state the Shaderunner Retractable Shade System is becoming the market leader in retractable shading throughout Australia.

Proudly Australian made, this increasingly popular retractable shading system is custom made to exacting standards and precision manufacturing to suit the individual setting, ensuring a perfect fit and years of dependable shading on demand. The system is easily extended using the simple endless cord system to position the Shaderunner® fabric as required, and whilst the majority of systems are ordered with manual operation, the system is also available with Somfy remote controlled operation for the ultimate convenience.

The Shaderunner® Retractable Shade System 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 colour options available, the Shaderunner® complements all architectural styles, from contemporary suburban homes to traditional country residences.

Several different support options are available such as (but not limited to) fixing to a house fascia, beam or wall and extending out to posts, or alternatively the system can be installed to a custom designed framework, free-standing posts or an existing pergola.

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 and provides welcome shade for enjoying our outdoor spaces in the Australian climate. Controllable shade enables the user to manipulate the amount of shading required. During summer the Shaderunner® can be fully extended to provide maximum shade, UV protection and thermal comfort on demand. In the cooler months the system can be retracted back, enabling winter sun to be maximised making the most of the available light and consequent solar gains.

So when designing an outdoor area, entertaining space or swimming pool, practical shading should be at the forefront of the design process. A well designed space should consider shading, and in particular retractable shading. The combined effect of reducing the impact of the sun during the summer and making the most of available light and warmth in the winter enables greater usage of outdoor spaces.

The unique qualities of the 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.
