Shade Ports

Shade Ports are a good alternative to a carport and much more cost effective way to provide shade for your vehicles than a carport, shade ports are constructed from tubular mild steel framework. The legs can either be concreted into the ground or bolted on to your existing concrete slab, or otherwise you could go for a cantilever option where your shade port gets mounted against a existing wall and there are no poles going down to the ground this gives you more space underneath your shade port.

The Shade port structure is covered with a polyethylene net which gets cut and sewed to size and then we stretch it over the shade port structure to fit tightly. The shade port net is then fixed to the frame using either nylon or steel rope or a pipe surround. All steelwork on the shade port structure is primed and painted to keep it rust free.

Shade Ports require little to no maintenance. In the event that a shade port gets damaged by extreme weather or a motor vehicle the nets can be replaced at low cost. Nowadays shade ports can be manufactured in various shapes and sizes to add as a feature to your property without losing its primary function and at the same time your shade port will add value to your property.
