    Installation Options

    The Shaderunner® is extremely versatile and can be installed in a variety of situations and applications including swimming pools, patios, gardens, decks and al frescos. Our installation options include:



    Installed into an existing framework or purpose-built framework. The Shaderunner® retractable sail is the perfect solution to add sun protection to an open pergola which may go unused due to the exposure to the harsh heat and UV. The pairing of soft wood and the Shaderunner® fabric is a favourite with architects and homeowners alike.


    Wall to Wall 

    Installed between two existing walls the Shaderunner® can be fixed with discrete stainless-steel plates or custom fabricated angles depending on the wall material. The Shaderunner® retractable sail then stacks neatly against the wall when not required. This can be a great option to add sun protection to a courtyard or deck.


    Post to Post 

    Installed between 4 posts the Shaderunner® retractable sail can be extended and retracted to provide large sun protection to pools, lawns and gardens with minimal structure. A crosswire can be used between the poles to pick up the operation cord or a beam can also be added between the posts. The posts need to be aligned with the stainless-steel guide wires which are set 20% in on the width of the Shaderunner® retractable sail.


    Rafter to Posts 

    Installed between the eave of the house and 2 posts the Shaderunner® retractable sail can be suspended from custom made brackets which are fixed to your rafters and come out through the fascia. This is a common installation method when providing shading to a deck or outdoor entertainment space next to the house.
