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 range consists of 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 two high-performance coatings making them easy to keep clean and looking good for twice as long as other waterproof fabrics.

Sundream H 

This fabric incorporates a UV protective layer that stops 99.7% of UVA and 99.9% of UVB radiation while still allowing 62% safer filtered light through. You can still add a little colour, the Sundream H is 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 Charcoal, which only allows 4% light transmission.

Sundream Cool

This fabric includes the same UV blocking technology as the Sundream H and also comes with a heat-shielding layer. Compared to Sundream H, this fabric reflects up to 30% more infrared light which reduces solar heat gain, so you can keep cooler all year round. It still allows 54% light transmission. And the pearlescent finish to the fabric makes it a subtle and modern addition to your home that comes to life in the sunlight.


This heavy-duty fabric is Sundream H’s big brother. Thicker, heavier and even stronger, it’s a great choice for covering large spans like your outdoor entertaining area. This fabric protects you and your family from 99.5% of UVA and 99.9% of UVB rays. And with 65% light transmission, it is the most transparent fabric Hiraoka produces.

Enjoy the benefits of more natural light around your home while still protecting your family from the harmful UV rays of the Australian sun. You can rely on these hard-wearing fabrics backed by a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty on the fabric and coatings.
