Te Horo School was looking for a cost-effective replacement to the historic shadesails that had been taken down for some time. With the existing wooden posts still in good order, the decision was made to install four triangular shade sails utilising the original posts. Due to the size of the sails and the desire for a quality sail that would stand the test of time, Monotec 370 was opted for as the fabric. Monotec 370 is a premium fabric and the strongest fabric on the market ideal for larger shadesails, with a 15-year warranty Te Horo School can have peace of mind their shadesail will be there for many years to come. Candy red and Koonunga green were opted on to match the school colours. A feature of these sails was the joining points in the middle of the sails or ” kissing points” which helps to reduce gaps for the sun to penetrate through, essential when the goal is to provide shade for the school children to utilise more of the playground safe from the harsh sun. The result was a cost-effective shade solution for this awesome Northland school that not only looks amazing but will last for many years thanks to a quality fabric decision.
