Wave Shade® retractable shade sails are stylish, durable and easy to install. With this versatile, user-friendly premium New Zealand product, your outdoor living or commercial space has never been so good.

Fully adjustable retractable shade sails to enhance your lifestyle

Nothing if not versatile, your custom-made Wave Shade® retractable shade sails allow the sun to shine when you want it, and give you cover when you need it.

Custom-made to fit your unique outdoor space perfectly, you can also specify the number of billows and how low they hang.

Brilliantly engineered to enhance your outdoor spaces of any shape and size and deliver you the lifestyle or commercial edge you want on your own terms, these ultra-stylish shade sails are also very easy to operate.

Designed for ease of operation

Simply choose between our integrated cord or pole retraction system for user-friendly operation.

The cord option works like a blind. A sturdy polyester braid operates on a stainless steel pulley to retract when pulled in one direction and extend when pulled the other way. What could be simpler?

The alternative of an aluminium pole is just as user-friendly. It hooks onto a stainless steel cleat on the front spar of the Wave Shade, allowing you to manually retract or extend the sail without effort.

Both options also allow you to lock off the shade at any mid-point.

Rectractable shade sails for residential & commercial

This premium shade solution is equally suitable for residential and commercial applications.

The envy of your barbecue guests, Wave Shade® is custom made to fit your outdoor entertainment area perfectly, whether for your deck, garden, poolside area or patio.

Commercial customers will love how Wave Shade® enhances their outdoor settings such as cafes, restaurants, wineries, hotels, and children’s play areas.

Wave Shade® is built to last and to weather the toughest conditions, including ocean-front locations.
