Designed to last: Ferroshade by Ricky Richards

Established in 1983, Ricky Richards delivers design excellence through premium, high-quality textiles – and Ferroshade by Ricky Richards does no less.

Designed to last: Ferroshade by Ricky Richards

As one of Australia’s leading supplier of specialised textiles, Ricky Richards is a family owned business that puts the customer’s needs at the forefront. Designed with a focus on functional and versatile offerings, the Ricky Richards experience delivers the highest quality textiles specially made for any occasion.

Their most recent launch celebrates Ferroshade: the iron strong shade fabric, which provides spectacular shade cover under the harsh Australian sun. There are not many shade fabrics sold in Australia that are backed by a 15-year warranty, however Ferroshade offers this and so much more. Designed with a knitted HDPE round monofilament yarn, it is a premium heavy-duty commercial-grade fabric that has been meticulously refined to provide a comfortable outdoor experience. Its durable and reliable shade fabric options are the perfect solution for a versatile range of applications.

Ferroshade is ideal for shade sails and structures at various locations. This includes car parks, playgrounds, theme parks, swimming pools, sporting areas, schools, council recreation areas, as well as any and every domestic application – Ferroshade offers endless possibilities.  

Designed to last, Ferroshade is made for permanent shade structures. Once installed, this special fabric requires no maintenance and can be used for even the busiest commercial, outdoor spaces. Available in ten vibrant colours, Ferroshade by Ricky Richards transforms your everyday space into an exciting, revitalised experience.
