Outdoor living whatever the weather exclusively by Kookaburra ®

Sail shades are fabric structures designed to keep you dry in the rain and cool in the bright sunshine. They're hung from anchor points on walls, poles, fences or trees to create an area of shade so you can enjoy your garden whatever the weather. Available in hundreds of shapes, styles, sizes and colours, they can be mounted in almost any position to provide soothing shade even in difficult-to-reach areas.
