Parasol™ is designed for Australian conditions and made to stringent quality and manufacturing specifications.

Parasol™ is a commercial grade knitted shadecloth suitable for tension structures and other heavy duty applications. It is manufactured using a combination of high density monofilament and tape which offers a higher degree of protection from UV radiation, known to cause sunburn and skin cancers.

For ease of fabrication and improved performance, Parasol™ shadecloth has been ‘heat set’ before rolling, to improve lay flat characteristics and dimensional stability.

  • UV stabilized
  • Heat set
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Up to 95% UVR block
  • High strength
  • 10 year warranty
