DIY Shade Sails

When it comes to a cost-effective shade solution for use in simple applications, nothing beats Global Shade’s DIY shade sails!

Our DIY shade sails are perfect for use in residential and small-scale commercial applications. They exhibit the same superior quality as our custom shade sails, the only difference is that they are designed for DIY installation.

In terms of options and customisation, you are not limited by choosing DIY shade sails. They are available in a range of pre-engineered shapes and sizes to fulfil the growing demands of customers. There are also several colour options to choose from.


As with our standard shade sails, Global Shade’s DIY shade sails offer the best quality. Designed to offer a smooth DIY installation experience, we manufacture our DIY shade sails using industry-leading materials.

The shade sails come reinforced with stainless steel wires and feature high-quality stitching using PDFE threads. Thanks to this, our DIY shade sails are exceptionally resistant to wear and tear and are of a much higher quality than those you will find at a home improvement warehouse. Moreover, our DIY shade sails also come pre-equipped with stainless steel D-Ring thimbles to facilitate easy installation.

Global Shade DIY shade sails are designed and tested to meet Australian quality standards. Our shade sails are the best for an affordable, yet high-quality shade solution – anywhere in Australia!
