Shaderunner® Retractable Shade Sail

What is a Shaderunner®?

The Shaderunner® is an attractive, cost-effective retractable shade sail that is light-weight and easy to operate, making it the answer to your shade requirements. The Shaderunner® retractable shade sail has been very popular over decks, balconies and pools, creating outdoor areas that are functional and aesthetically pleasing.

This retractable shade sail structure concertinas forward and backward along stainless steel cables, avoiding the need for heavy overhead tracks. The fabric creates beautiful, soft billowy shapes when extended, and then tucks away neatly when fully retracted.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Shaderunner® uses the best marine-grade stainless steel fitting and fixings so it will last longer than the off-the-shelf products purchased at your local hardware!

Create your dynamic outdoor area with a Shaderunner® and you will not only have control over the climate, but the ability to enjoy the outdoors for more days of the year.
