Resthaven, Aberfoyle Park
Shadeform were recently engaged to design, supply and install a Shaderunner® retractable sail system and hypar shade sail at the new Resthaven aged facility in Aberfoyle Park, SA. Working for successful landscape contractor company, Outside Ideas, Shadeform provided full engineering and design, steelwork fabrication, shade manufacture and installation for the Shaderunner®. Shadeform also provided personal staff training to centre employees on the operation and use of the Shaderunner® at the facility. The result is a fantastic deck area that provides a valuable and usable space for residents and visitors to Resthaven, while ensuring they remain protected from the weather at all times.
The Shaderunner® used at the facility is motorised, which provides the ultimate convenience for users of the deck area. With touch button remote control, the shade can be extended when required, either fully or partially, and then folded back. The system is even fitted with an optional wind sensor, which will retract the shade if the wind picks up and staff or patrons are not availabe to retract the shade manually.
Shadeform have provided a number of shade and all-weather solutions to aged care facilities - with the Shaderunner® being particularly popular - in addition to shade sails and all-weather structural umbrellas.
In another project that Shadeform recently completed, the team worked with CED Building Design to supply and install a series of Cantilevered Flexshade Umbrellas for the multi-award-winning Living Choice aged facility at Fullarton, SA.
