Those who live in Australia are familiar with the beautiful weather and abundant sunshiny days. Long, warm summers are a luxury – but there are downsides. UV exposure, sunburn, and the energy costs associated with cooling homes and businesses are a few of these. However, if you’re looking for an excellent solution for your restaurant, café, school, park, sporting facility, or other outdoor area, shade sails in Brisbane provide the answer. Here are a few of the reasons you’ll be glad you had yours installed.

You – and any visitors – will stay cooler and safer

When you install custom shade sails at your Brisbane business, you, your employees, and your guests will enjoy the lower temperature under the shade. In fact, the summer heat here makes shade sails a necessity for any business or organisation with an outdoor area. At Versatile Structures, we can install your sails in a wide variety of configurations to give you the most shade and the best aesthetic. Our shades provide UV protection, keeping the people under them safe from sunburn and the health risks associated with exposure to UV rays.

Lower energy bills

Heavy duty shade sails do more than just make you more comfortable; they can also reduce your energy costs. Shade sails add shelter to your business. When they are installed close enough to the building, they can help keep the interior cooler and minimise your need to run the air conditioner. In fact, shade sails often pay for themselves over time by saving you money on your cooling expenses.

Added aesthetic appeal

Not only are shade sails practical, but they are also beautiful design pieces. You can dramatically improve the look of your business with the right shade sail. Choose from a wide variety of colours and shapes to find the one that suits your business best.

Protection for your property

It’s common knowledge that the sun’s rays are potentially harmful to people, but you may not realise that they are also harmful to your property. Direct sunlight can fade outdoor carpets and furniture as well as affect them structurally. It can also have a damaging effect on vehicles. Shade sails help by protecting your property from sunlight. Also, there are waterproof shade sails available to protect your property as well as your guests from wet weather.
