Wave Shade offers a fresh alternative to Shade Sails.


Wave Shade retractable shade offers a fresh alternative to traditional shade sails that are fixed in place and set in shape. The shapely billows bring an effortless style to outdoor areas with modern colours that naturally blend in and complement the existing style of your property. You can customise size, fabric, colour and billow to create the perfect look for your space. Extend during the heat of the day and retract when more light is required, they are a great option underneath a pergola where it can get too hot to sit. Alternatively retract when you want sun and extend when you need shade. Enjoy the sun on your terms.

Easy Retraction System with either a pole or pulley.


Appearance can be flat with low billow or draping with medium and deep billow.

Retraction Options

Pole Retraction

An Aluminium pole hooks on to a Stainless Steel cleat at the the front of the shade which can be manually pulled or pushed.

Cord Retraction

This works like a blind - pull one side of the cord loop and retract the Wave Shade, pull the other side and it extends.

Fabrics & Colours

A large range of premium fabrics and colours are available to suit every style. The Soltis 96 Range has a 4% openness factor (the amount you can see through the fabric) which is breathable, and reduces heat. It is also tear and dirt resistant, light weight and blocks up to 85% UV.

Other fabrics are available on request. Our consultants will have samples on hand when they come out to quote.


Because the Wave Shade can be easily unclipped and removed from the supporting wires maintenance is easy. It can then be either washed by hand or with a low powered hose before being refitted or stored for Winter. A mild household detergent diluted in warm water and a soft brush is recommended to be used periodically.
