Camberwell Grammar in Melbourne needed a shade sail for their outdoor courtyard. Used for outdoor barbecues, the space had little natural UV protection. A correctly positioned shade sail can block out up to 95% of the suns rays and cut heat levels down dramatically.
A creative shade sail solution was required to provide maximum shade cover and complement the building’s blue grey overtones. Camberwell Grammar have selected mulders as their supplier for 'floating' shade sail for their outdoor courtyard.
Load bearing fixing points were identified on the building to reduce the sail’s footprint. Only two supporting posts were required offering less obstruction for students and staff. For solid construction and durable tensioning, each supporting post had a large diameter.
The sail was designed from a stylish aqua blue architectural grade membrane to blend in with the building’s décor. This quality membrane was UV resistant, able to provide protection from sun and wind. Supporting posts were made from hot dipped galvanised steel, resistant to rain, salt corrosion and rust.
The result was a comfortable outdoor space covered with a light and airy looking shade sail. Students and staff could now cook barbecues in comfort, whatever the weather condition.
