After 15 years subjected to the harsh Australian sun in Capalaba QLD a Z16 shade structure was tested and was found to still provide outstanding durability, high UV protection and lasting strength.
The video below is one of the many tests conducted on the 15 year old canopy. In the Hail simulation test a 38mm solid ice ball is fired at 177 KPH into the fabric. Even after 4 shots were fired the fabric still did not fail.
The video clearly highlights the strength and performance that is only possible when a high quality shade fabric such as Z16 is used.
