SPAN SHADE KNUCKLE SYSTEM
Build a complete high performing shade structure without the hard work using THE SPAN SHADE KNUCKLE SYSTEM. Knuckles and Elbows are the basic building blocks that link Span Shade Structures together. They are made of tough alloy.
The basics are in threes. 3 knuckle system sizes are available - Standard, Heavy Duty and Mega. From these build Span Shade structures from 20 to 200sm structures. Only 3 sizes of CHS tube are used. Create unlimited shade protection. Then when you want to go seriously large link bays together using the Double Joiners for unlimited size possibilities.
Span Shade structures are engineered for the toughest environments. Engineering starts with W28 wind loads boosted to suit specific region and terrain wind loads. Engineering is recommended for all Span Shade systems for compliance to building standards.Span Shade perform well in North Queensland where cyclonic conditions test any structure.
To obtain a quote tell us a few things about the proposed structure such as size, height, location and footings. We can advise on a suitable Span Shade System that will work for you. Order fittings alone or get the whole Span Shade kit. We can even make up the roof fabric. Flexibility is key.
A free online or phone advisory service is available to help you start building Span Shades. Once you start you'll be hooked.

The Span Shade System can be used to build Span Shade structures up to 200sm. Knuckles link the apex by joining rafters to ridge posts.Elbows are fitted between uprights and rafters giving rigidity and shape to the structure. Building Span Shade Structures is straightforward as angles and fittings are constant. Engineering is available on all structures.
Build Span Shade structures up to 200sm with Knuckle and Elbow units."L" Elbows are used in corners and can be purchased alone or with"Y" Knuckles.Building Span Shade Structures relies on a few variables to obtain the required size and strength for each structure. Steel tube is a variable which is cut to the size of the structure. The Knuckles and Elbows are set sizes and not variable.
Engineering and advice is available for all structures.
Centre knuckles are used in the central apex of square or hexagonal Span Shades. These are combined with Span Shade Knuckles as th ebuilding blocks of Span Shade Structures. Engineering is available.
Spans of up to 12m on Square or 15m on Hexagonal Span Shades can be achieved using the Mega system. When two or more more structures are linked together you can achieve infinate length possibilities.
Practical, economical and strong.
To link Span Shades Double Joiners are used. Double Joiners strengthen central postwork by accommodating bigger posts for the middle of the Span Shade. Each bay can be linked to the next bay using double joiners allowing unlimited length Span Shades.
The double joiners are available in three sizes - Standard, Heavy Duty and Mega.
Span Shade Structures are extremely rigid in strong weather conditions.
Add extra rigidity to a Span Shade Structure with Kneebraces. Kneebraces are fixed between the post leg and the rafter. Each Kneebrace is pre-drilled and the ends are bent and flattened for ease of fixing.
TENSION PLATE SETS. (2)
Tension plates offer a very secure fixing for the fabric roof skin to the framework. Used in both shade cloth and waterproof PVC Span Shade structures.
Two sizes are offered Standard and Heavy Duty. Each set comes complete with tension plates, D toggles, trilobe bolts, nuts and washers.
Anti-vandal guards are a strong deterrant against unauthorised access to the top of shade structures. Public risk minimisation is as important as protecting the structure itself. This is particularly important in public places where open access exists with limited or no fencing possibilities.
Secured at height on the upright posts the anti- vandal guards make it near impossible to get a foothold to the top of the structure due to the angle of the downward facing prongs.
