SHADESIGN develops innovative sun protection solutions of the highest design and quality level. Our patented SHADE shadow-systems have established themselves as the third standard product in sun and weather protection alongside the long-serving awnings and classic parasols.

Whether as shade or rain protection, SHADE  is suitable for almost every use. Enjoy the freedom on your terrace or balcony, away from the oppressive awning or the massive pergola! SHADE  can be installed in different versions or set up as a free-standing system, so it can be adapted to almost any need.

The fabric roller is the heart of the SHADE shadow-system!

Rolling in the sail and the required fabric tension are combined in a simple way. If the sail is unwound from the fabric roller, the tension cords are wound up by rotating cord cones. The tension cord and sail remain taut in every position. Operation is very easy!  SHADE can be rolled out independently within seconds, and it can be rolled in just as quickly and effortlessly using the control cord, which can then be easily fastened.

One system - many options!


With our innovative SHADE we enable sun and shade where you want it. SHADE combines the advantages of an awning system with the lightness and elegance of a sun sail - and it offers an incredible price-performance ratio.

Whether terrace, patio, roof garden, outdoor dining area, balcony, pool shading or courtyard covering, thanks to the modular structure, almost any desired area can be shaded with SHADE. Almost every challenge can be solved with an extensive range of systems and accessories.

SHADE fabric is made of high-strength polyester with a PU coating on both sides. The fabric's low surface weight harmonises perfectly with the way the system works. The specially developed fabric impresses with its very good UV and water pressure resistance. All fabrics used have a UPF value of 50+.

The sail colouring and texture shown may not correspond to the real fabric appearance. The real fabric colour is only reflected in our original SHADE colour card, which is available from our specialist dealers.

Sun protection in colour

The membrane was specially developed for SHADE's high requirements.  The fabric is very light, mould resistant impregnated, completely waterproof, stain-resistant and has a UPF value of 50+ for high protection against harmful UV radiation. UV stabilisation ensures permanent high tear resistance and rich colours.

Rolling in the fabric can create a more or less pronounced leaf structure. This has no influence on the fabric's function and quality. The leaf structure effect diminishes after a short period of strong sun exposure.

  • No water pockets due to self-draining membrane suspension from an 8-degree incline
  • Little installation effort
  • Also ideal for under-glass designs (SHADESTRUCTURE)
  • Width up to 6.0 meters / projection up to 5.75 meters (6.0-meter projection with motorised operation possible)

Must have for the SHADE

Thanks to the rolling protective roof, the cover unit of your SHADE is weatherproof all year round. The canopy is attached directly to the sail connection rail as well as to the fabric unit, so it is automatically protected by surrounding aluminium slats when it is rolled in. Of course, we not only pay attention to the effective use, but also to the appearance - this is why our rolling canopy is available in three colours.

Please note that the rolling canopy is only possible with wall mounting!
