Why GALE Pacific shade fabrics?

As the only shade fabric endorsed by Cancer Council, GALE Pacific shade sails are ideal for use in outdoor spaces where protection from the sun is critical.
Outdoor areas without suitable shade expose the community to UV radiation, as well as extreme surface temperatures, up to 100°C in the hot summer months.
Our shade products are specified by landscape architects, schools and councils because they help protect communities, and reduce business risk.

Case study: ‘UV Shadesmart Playground’

Memorial Park Playground in Merrylands, NSW is an excellent case study in making playgrounds safer during hot weather.

Western Sydney University partnered with Cumberland City Council, GALE Pacific and several other parties to build a ‘UV smart’ shade structure over an existing playground.

The shade sail installation offers the ‘co-benefit’ of helping to provide instant protection from the sun, while also facilitating outdoor play and community wellbeing.

It also means that risk for Councils and Landscape Architects could be reduced.

Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) Partner

GALE Pacific has recently partnered with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA). AILA, GALE Pacific and local councils share a common goal… making open spaces safer. Playgrounds, parks and other outdoor areas without suitable shade can expose the community to UV radiation, and extreme surface temperatures in the summer months.

“On behalf of the AILA board and members, I am pleased to welcome GALE Pacific on board as an AILA National Corporate Partner. GALE Pacific shade fabrics are exclusively endorsed by Cancer Council, and our partnership gives our members access to best practice sun protection knowledge and products. We look forward to working together to help create safe, vibrant and inclusive open spaces for our communities.”
