User-friendly design

Manual pole or integrated cord retraction

The beauty of Wave Shade is its simple, user-friendly design that makes it a breeze to use for homeowners, restaurants and installers alike.

Lightweight materials make Wave Shade easy to transport and handle, and installation is straightforward and fast. Once installed, you or your customers will enjoy smooth, effortless shade retraction each and every time.

Choose either an integrated cord or pole retraction system. The cord retraction option operates on a stainless steel pulley and a polyester braid. It works like a blind, pulling one side of the cord loop to retract and the other way to extend it; this system allows customers to lock it off halfway open.

Pole retraction comprises of a medium duty pole and a stainless steel cleat on the front spar of the Wave Shade. The aluminium pole hooks to the cleat to retract the Wave Shade back and forth.


Custom-made shades

Every Wave Shade system is custom-made to order, ensuring a perfect fit over any outdoor space. Choose how much billow the shade has, and how low the billows hang. They can also specify how close the spars are (spars are the aluminium cross bars that holds the fabric out).

For standard Wave Shades, they operate on two wire cables. We recommend that each Wave Shade does not exceed 10m². This allows for dimensions like 5m in length and 2m in width or 2.5m in length and 4m in width.

If you’re covering a large area, it’s advisable to use multiple units or install two shades side by side. Larger shades can be manufactured with three cable wires. Get in touch with the Wave Shade design team to discuss your project specifications.

You can fit Wave Shades onto existing pergolas, gazebos, decks, outdoor frameworks, timber beams, structures, posts, and houses. A crucial aspect of a good installation is ensuring the wire cables are tightly secured, so Wave Shades should be attached to a sturdy structure.
