Every car needs a home of its own. An architecturally designed sail
shade can be an elegant alternative to the traditional garage or carport.
Mulders, a long established Malvern based manufacturer of sail shades,
has developed a new innovative free standing shade sail structure for
carports. This new design called ''Eclipse’’ has the traditional
streamlined look of a sail shade but is specifically designed for carports.
These shade structures can be very effective when trying to reduce the
sun’s harsh effect on car paintwork and interiors. Often used
in outside entertaining areas, these tension membranes are becoming
increasingly regarded as a graceful modern extension to the home.
the new Eclipse design is using two fixing posts instead of four. This
halving in number means less risk of your car hitting supporting poles
plus maximum use of the shade area. A central cross-piece supporting
structure is then fixed on just two opposite corners of the sail. The
sail ‘floats’ over nearby walls and corners making it easy
alone design means the carport can be located near the house or down
the end of a driveway. There also mow no need to use a weight bearing
fixing on a roof or external wall, placing no stress on existing structures.
The shade is straightforward to dismantle and re-install for easy re-location
when moving house.
The overall appearance is of a lightweight stylish sail structure which
gives a high level of shade where it is needed.
of designs are available using rectangular or square configurations.
The space efficient two pole design means that the larger version can
be used as a double carport. The overall structure is made from hot
dipped galvanised steel which is very resistant to rain, salt corrosion
and rust. Eclipse is also engineer certified.
The sails themselves can be made in a choice of high quality shade cloths,
architectural grade polyester mesh and solid PVC’s. These materials
withstand wind, sun and rain. UV ray resistant materials provide superb
protection from the damaging rays of the sun.
