Quality Shade Solutions to Suit Your Needs

Let’s talk about shade solutions. Shade structures are so important and offer many benefits when they are well-designed and correctly installed. There are many different types of shade materials and shade designs to chose from but they do not all offer the same level of protection. Luckily, whatever your industry, here at MakMax Australia we have you covered.

Pushing the boundaries of engineering and design, our commercial shade structures are aesthetically beautiful, elegant and iconic, and adaptable to a wide-range of applications.

We combine architectural designs with engineering solutions – ensuring your project quality is second to none.

Our commitment is to meet your needs and exceed your expectations – regardless of your industry or specific project requirements.

Schools & Universities

Covered outdoor learning areas and outdoor sports courts are two key education areas, but we have designed and built a wide range of projects in this sector. Feature outdoor assembly areas, porte cocheres, awnings and our range of umbrellas and modular structures are all regular projects in our portfolio.

The use of fabric materials in facades continues to grow and our range of case studies showcases our ability both for new projects and to retrofit existing works to transform the architecture.

Our sporting canopies range from a simple basketball court cover to major large spanning multi-use facilities and to ETFE skylights in aquatic centre roofs. We understand the importance of safety in design when building outdoor structures at schools; contact our team to discuss your project in more detail.
