These sail shades are made of durable architectural grade PVC which keeps the winter rain out and acts as a sun block-out during summer.
Tobacco reforms are driving many entertainment venues to upgrade their outdoor entertainment and drinking areas.
During cold rainy days, beer gardens, roof-top terraces, and outdoor smoking areas can become largely unusable.
A combination of PVC shade sails and outdoor heaters can help turn these outdoor recreation areas into dry, inviting, outdoor spaces for customers.
Once summer arrive these shade sails block out the sun. These streamlined tensioned membranes make guests more comfortable while creating a modern sculptural look at the same time.
A series of overlapping shade sails have been designed by GV Mulder for bistro’s, hotels, bowling clubs and other entertainment venues.
Mulder’s innovative Eclipse shade sail spans up to 7m but only uses two supporting poles instead of four. This design is ideal for entertainment areas where space is at a premium.
Each solution has been different as outdoor entertainment spaces are diverse in their size and layout.
Often a series of overlapping sails are needed to give shade cover but adequate footing space is needed for multiple supporting poles.
Mulders work alongside architects, landscapers and builders to help advice on optimum sail design from just an initial sketch or plan. Sails can be made from waterproof or shade only materials and a wide range of colours are available.
Mulders design and manufacturing process is fully CAD Driven. All sails are made on site at their Melbourne factory which has over 1500m2 of manufacturing capacity.
Only long lasting premium grade materials are used like canvas, architectural grade mesh or solid PVCs. These are specifically designed for use under tension.
High quality UV stabilised thread or high frequency welding is used to give clean, durable, watertight seams. All sails incorporate anchor points which can be fixed to non-rusting galvanised or powder coated poles or brackets.
