Hiraoka Sundream & Sunclear

If you need protection from the elements but don’t want to lose natural light Hiraoka has a new and innovative solution with the SX Transparent Series. The series consists of the Hiraoka Sundream H, Sundream Cool and Sunclear. These three high quality, transparent fabrics that can keep the weather and harmful UV radiation out while letting light in. This range of commercial-grade, PVC coated polyester fabrics come with hard-wearing, dirt and water-resistant coatings for easy to clean sails that last twice as long as other water-proof shade sails.

Sundream H

This fabric incorporates a UV blocking layer that stops 99.7% of UVA and 99.9% of UVB radiation while still allowing 62% light transmission. For a splash of the colour, the Sundream H is also available in charcoal, blue and bronze. These colours are still semi-transparent allowing more than 30% light transmission depending on your colour choice. Compare that to a normal shade sail, for example, the Rainbow Shade Z16 in the colour Laguna Blue, which only allows 11% light transmission.

Sundream Cool

This fabric includes the same UV blocking technology as the Sundream H and also includes Hiraoka’s heat shield technology. Compared to Sundream H, this fabric reflects up to 30% more infrared light reducing solar heat gain. The pearlescent, near-transparent finish to the fabric means it almost sparkles in the sunlight while allowing 54% light transmission.


This heavy-duty fabric is Sundream H’s big brother. Thicker, heavier and even stronger, it’s a great choice for covering large spans in any commercial or industrial space. This fabric can block 99.5% of UVA and 99.9% of UVB rays. And with 65% light transmission, it is the most transparent fabric Hiraoka produces.

Save money by letting in more natural light while still protecting your customers, employees and yourself from the burning Australian sun. The SX Transparent Series is a great solution where ordinary shade sails won’t work. With a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty on the fabric and coatings, you can rely on these hard-wearing fabrics to protect your business from the elements for years to come.
