Beat the heat and help save your skin this summer with Cancer Society-endorsed shade products from Coolaroo.

Shade lovers

As summer scorches, shady spots become prized places to sit and chill. But to thrive through summer, you need shade and sun protection – not always the same thing. Coolaroo offers both; plus, theirs are the only shade products endorsed by the Cancer Society.

Sail away

Shade sails are an economical and flexible way to create shade. Use one to instantly turn a patio into a desirable place to hang or provide much needed protection – up to 95 per cent UV block – to a kids' play space.

Though easy to install, a shade sail is far from a temporary patch job; it's actually designed as a permanent solution, with a 15-year warranty to back it up.

If you already have the framework, like a pergola, it's even easier to cool things down by throwing over some shade cloth. This durable D.I.Y. solution lets heat escape and blissfully cool breezes filter through.


In summer, there's plenty of heat in the late afternoon sun. For this, there's no better solution than outdoor roller blinds.

Choose crank operation, easy release or motorised blinds, which operate with solar power, so there's no hardwiring required.


Brilliant brollies

A simple market umbrella will never go out of style, or try a cantilevered version – with 360° rotation. Coolaroo's cantilevered umbrellas can be swivelled to give you constant shade as the sun moves through the sky.

All the umbrella options help protect your family's skin with UPF50+ fabric, the highest possible sun protection rating.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
