Shade Sails

Johnson & Couzins' sun sails and shade sails are the ideal protection from the harsh New Zealand sun. With a high UV and shade rating our sun sails are an ever-popular choice around playgrounds, pools and sandpits. As every outdoor area is different, we design each shade sail individually to suit its specific requirements. The canopies of Johnson & Couzins' sails can be removed easily and are available in a vast range of colours and 100% waterproof PVC. 


Perfect for New Zealand Conditions

Shade sails (or sun sails) are very popular to keep the sun off around the pool, sandpit or garden during summer months. Sun sail tarps add value and make a statement on top of providing shade and weather protection.

Johnson & Couzins' shade sails are manufactured from a genuine top-grade sail fabric with a high UV and shade rating, making it ideal for New Zealand weather conditions. All our sail tarp fittings are stainless steel including turnbuckles, which make it easy to remove the canopy when required. Available in a vast range of colours and also available in waterproof PVC, including the structure to support them.

We offer completely individual design and no-obligation quotation service for our sun sail tarps, and all structural work is designed and manufactured in house. Your custom-designed canopy will be installed by our qualified staff.

As with all Johnson & Couzins outdoor shade products, our shade sails are supplied with our quality guarantee based on our 150-year reputation for service and satisfaction.
