Designed and developed in South Africa, Kalahari Shade prides itself on understanding the harshness of the African sun and have developed the Kalahari Shade Sail with this in mind. A shade solution that will withstand the African sun.
Storm Distribution, distributors of a wide range of quality products(stormdistribution.co.za), saw a need in the South African market for an affordable, functional shade sail and thus the Kalahari permanent and temporary shade sails were born. The Kalahari shade sail is designed and distributed by Storm Distribution.
The shade sails are manufactured in the PRC to our specifications. Quality is very important to us and thus the factory outlet producing our shade sails was researched, visited and approved by us personally with regular follow up visits to ensure quality is maintained.
We currently offer three Permanent Shade sail solutions and two Temporary Shade Sail solutions.
We at Storm Distribution have a long history of experience in shade sails and umbrellas made out of shade fabric. We are therefore in an excellent position to bring you a quality product at the best value.
