Sail City Consultants

Sail City has motivated, skilled people who provide complete customer service.

Our consultants have design training, safety certificates and public liability insurance coverage.  

We have in excess of 40 years combined experience in designing, manufacturing and installing shade sails.

What we do for you:

  • Help you with your concept and provide design advice based on extensive experience. 

    Our consultants understand shade sail design, fabric characteristics and fabrication techniques so our designs are stylish, aesthetically pleasing and practical.
  • Design the shade sail and fixings according to engineering principles.
  • Order sail posts that are structurally and aesthetically appropriate for the particular job, and powder coated to an appropriate colour.
  • Complete the ground works safely and in a clean and timely manner.
  • Install the new shade sail.
  • Offer yearly maintenance comprised of taking down the shade sail prior to winter, checking its condition and providing advice on any repairs or faulty tensioning points. We also wash the shade sail if required, and install it in spring ready for the summer months.



Meet our Consultants 





Ben is from Sail City North.

Sail City North covers areas in the northern suburbs of Perth.  He is also available to customers in the North West of WA.

"We have had Ben install several shade sails for us over the last few years,  in each case he took the time to discuss all aspects of the job with us and gave suggestions which enhanced and improved our initial ideas. 
All the work has been carried out on time with great enthusiasm and care, everything left clean & tidy on completion.
In fact when we needed an insect screen on our french doors and realised that Ben was also involved in installing retractable insect screens we stopped looking for any other company and contacted him straight away!
It has been so refreshing to meet someone who brings such a friendly and professional attitude to their work, we wouldn't  hesitate in recommending his services to anyone.

Stu is from Sail City South.  

Sail City South covers Perth's eastern and southern areas as far south as Cockburn.


"I am 100% happy with the professional work done by Sail City; especially dealing with the rough terrain of Perth hills and the need for a specialised concrete drilling rig to cut through our deck for one of the anchor points.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.  The job was completed within the time quoted and that was even with the hiccup of the extra day needed for the drilling. The workmanship on the actual sail was very impressive.  Having the sail across our back deck made our summer socialising so comfortable with the extra shade.  The task of taking it down for winter was an easy process and we know that Stuart Gaffney and the team are always ready to help if we need their expertise when we put it back up for next Summer.

Many thanks from a very satisfied customer, Cheryl."




Abbas is from Sail City Cockburn and Beyond.

Area's covered are the district of Cockburn and Beyond.


We needed something to shade our back courtyard that wouldn’t be a permanent structure. A shade sail seemed perfect. We had a representative of another company (not Abbas) come out and flippantly give a quote without explaining or showing us, as consumers, the quality of the shade cloth & hardware, the choice of colours and the explanation of how the hardware is used. In addition to that, when it came time to install the shade sail, the quote from this first company went up by an additional $1000.00. I was most displeased as was my landscaper.

I immediately called Abbas, as I had initially contacted him through the website, and he came out within a very short time. Abbas explained the whole procedure for the correct installation of the shade sail as well as showing us fabric samples and making suggestions for how the sail could be posed, something the previous vendor did not do. He also insured that installation went ahead on the days and at the times agreed  to and this is so refreshingly different from some companies and individuals who often no-show.

Abbas managed the whole project in such a professional and friendly manner that I am very happy to urge you to contact him for any of your shade sail needs. He is such a credit to his company, Sailcity Cockburn & Beyond, and I would very highly recommend him and Sailcity to anyone wanting a quality installation, wherever it is needed, of much-needed shade in our very hot Perth climate. Thank you Abbas; it was an absolute pleasure and we LOVE our shade sail!

Thanks so much 😊
