About us

Sail Structures was formed in 1988 in conjunction with Port Douglas Sailmakers and initially manufactured high quality yacht sails. Using our Sailmaking experience we began to manufacture tensioned fabric membranes for architectural use.

Being one of only a handful of suppliers in the country with the skills to fabricate these specialty products in the early 90s, we quickly gained a reputation within the industry for our ability to supply first-class shade structures.

As the industry rapidly expanded over the next 20 years, we lead the way by constantly researching and developing our products and services. Using the latest technology available such as CAD Software, high-quality fabrics and hardware, modern patenting systems, and outstanding staff; we specialised solely in high end architectural membranes.

The results speak for themselves – we are recognised as the market leader in North Queensland delivering many high-profile projects in the region. Many of these have gone on to be judged award winners in State, National and International Awards.

Through constant innovation and a client focus, we have also developed a range of services that provide full life cycle maintenance and support for anyone with a shade portfolio.
