Images of both DUO and Supershade
This shade withstood 11 named storms during the winter of 2015/16 without movement!
(1) DUO Supershade - alignment of shock cords to roof bars. At corners, hook both ends of the shock cord into the single brass eyelet and loop the shock cord over the end of the corner bars.
(2) DUO Supershade - roof bar location.
(3) DUO Supershade - recommended method of fixing for corded sides. Thread light cord through the knitted eyelets in the material and tie from corner brass eyelet to corner brass eyelet, then hook as shown from under intermediate roof bars onto the cord itself.
(4) DUO Supershade - wall fixing.
Shaded Victorian with cresting removed (finial unscrews and cresting slides out of ridge channel).
See above for alternative fixing methods to roof bar cappings at eaves level.
Effective glare reduction against powerful sunlight and virtual elimination of rain noise on polycarbonate roofs.
I thought I'd write and say thank you for the external shading you supplied recently.
I was nervous having given the dimensions over the 'phone, but the blinds arrived in no time - I think I placed the order on the Tuesday lunchtime and it was on the roof, fitting nicely by 6pm on Thursday.
The performance of the shading is excellent. On first fitting the conservatory was noticeably darker*, but we've got used to that and the temperature control is vastly improved. Despite
high spec glass and internal shading, we were having to keep the windows open on sunny spring days - and even then the temperature would soar. Since fitting the shading we have so far been able
to keep the windows shut all the time without the room getting too hot, which is impressive.
Fitting the first time - including cutting the bungee cord to length, was 10 minutes. Next time it'll be less than 5.

(* Lighter shades are available for atria such as that depicted - surrounded by areas of solid roof that is not proximate to windows.)
I recently purchased a Supershade from your company and would like to tell you how pleased we are with it. It has lowered the temperature in our conservatory by 20F, which means that we can use it even on hot days (as it faces south).
I have enclosed the addresses of two friends who have a similar problem and have promised that you will send them your sample pack...
Thank you again,
At last we get the chance to say how really really pleased we are with the Koalashade over our south facing conservatory. The effect was magic and straight away we felt the coolness it gave us.
I did a lot of research before I came to the conclusion that having indoor blinds was a complete waste of time and that you need to STOP the heat getting into the conservatory in the first place.
It looks cool as well as doing what it says on the packet! I would recommend this product to anyone, especially somebody like me who cannot stand the heat. A GREAT product, delivered very quickly. So glad I found out about this great solution for hot conservatories.

I sent for your 12' x 8' conservatory shading with some trepidation, since as an 84 yr. old I was concerned that the fitting would be as simple and straightforward as you claim. To my relief it was I had the job finished unaided in just over an hour and your green mesh really works the change in temperature is remarkable.
Another point in its favour is that it doesn't noticeably darken the conservatory when fitted. Friends who called didn't notice any difference!
Many thanks for an excellent product that really does the job at a reasonable cost.

I would like to place an order for a Koalashade.
I think I must have been one of your first customers back in 1985, but like myself my original blind is a little worse for wear and I think it is about time I invested in a replacement.
I must say I have been more than satisfied with the product and have introduced lots of friends to Koalashade.

As requested I enclose some photos (see above and below) on CD of the fitted shade wasn't successful emailing them.
My thanks again for such an effective product and fast and friendly service.

We are delighted with the shades you supplied recently for our conservatory...
The temperature reduction has lived up to your prediction and we have had greater use already of the conservatory. The fanlight still works perfectly with the automatic opener...
Thank you for your assistance with production of the overall one piece shade which fits well and holds down snugly. I enclose before and after photographs which you may keep for illustration / advertising purposes.

I just thought I'd drop you a note of appreciation.
A couple of weekends ago I re-fitted our Koalashade for its sixth summer of service. It will now cover our south facing conservatory until the end of September. The material shows no sign of deterioration after an estimated 30 35 months of exposure to sunlight. It has withstood a number of late September gales without losing grip of the roof!
The shade certainly makes our conservatory a much more pleasant place to sit in, even on the hottest sunny days.
Previously we had aluminium foil coated blinds fitted inside the roof lights they were extremely expensive and totally useless!
