Velarium Variable Shade

Choose Your Amount Of Shade

The MakMax Velarium Variable Shade System is an advanced motorised retractable shade system. This variable shade system is created using opposing sets of architectural-grade PVC mesh shade panels, supported on a cable grid that spans freely across the width of a pool. The Velarium system allows for large spans to be covered with minimal visible structural elements above the pool.

The system can be operated directly from a master control panel or a remote hand control. Each Velarium shade section is retracted and deployed by an independent motor, giving the operator the flexibility to open or close individual panel sections to suit their requirements. This clever design allows for panels to be deployed in almost any position between fully open and fully closed, and puts the power of the sun (the amount of shade required) into the hands of a single person.

The Velarium shade panel sections are further divided by aluminium battens into smaller removable fabric segments for ease of installation and future maintenance.

The whole system is backed up by series of safety measures, including pre-set and constant monitoring limit and control switches, along with climate sensors designed to retract the shade automatically when high winds are detected.

Velarium Variable Shade: Adaptable To Meet Your Needs

The MakMax Velarium Variable Shade System is an adaptable system that would suit any application requiring large span column-free variable shade.

The Velarium variable shade system is also suited to grass sporting facilities where a full canopy would not allow enough sunlight to filter to the playing surface.

Perfectly suited for swimming pools, where some sunlight is still welcome, The MakMax Velarium variable shade system was first installed as part of St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School Sports Precinct redevelopment in Brisbane.

Why Install A Velarium Variable Shade System?

The main advantages of the Velarium Variable Shade System:

  • Adaptable – Made up of opposing panel sections, each section can be opened independently or all together, allowing the user to adjust the areas and levels of shade.
  • Scalable – each panel section is designed to cover the width of a standard Olympic swimming pool – multiple panel sections can be installed to create any length.
  • Easy to Use – unlike manual winch-operated shade panels, the Velarium is motor controlled, a single person can operate the whole system from a remote hand control.
