This compliments the existing Department of Health shade sails program.

Somerville Kindergarten’s new shade sail looks amazing. Many thanks to Tim, Bronwyn and the team at Peninsula Shade Sails to help us navigate the lengthy process to install the sail over our swing set. Without your help and follow up, it may never have become a reality. The children at kinder will benefit every day from it.


A huge thank you to Tim and the team at Peninsula Shade Sails.
We are extremely pleased with our sails and are more than happy to recommend this company. Defiantly 5 Stars

As manager of the Rosebud RSL, I engaged Peninsula Shade Sails to complete a project for us in our garden/memorial area. They were professional, works were completed as quoted and the end result is visually better than I expected. Happy to recommend for any similar projects

The provision of well-planned and designed shade as a sun protection measure can reduce overall exposure to UV radiation by up to 75 per cent!’
