Design & Development Capabilities


Our staff are highly skilled at operating computer aided design software. We prepare your designs for use in sophisticated plotting and cutting technologies, giving you confidence that your product is manufactured exactly to design specifications.

Stanfast cater for all requirements. You can provide us with your own architecturally engineered designs; or we can design it here for you.

A good design needs to be desirable, feasible and viable. We are more than happy to provide design suggestions based on the know-how we have accumulated over many years of manufacturing experience.

Computerised Plotting and Cutting

We use industry-leading plotting and cutting technologies within our manufacturing processes. This means your product is made to an exceptional standard, as efficiently as possible; on time; and exactly to specifications.

Material Selection

The selection of material is critical in ensuring that a structure can withstand the stresses placed on it by supporting tension elements, and the surrounding environment.

Stanfast has experience in manufacturing shade covers out of nearly every type of PVC and shade cloth material. We understand the benefits, costs, and practical limits of each.

Our manufacturing professionals ensure that the most suitable materials and supporting components are used for your project.

Welding & Sewing

Our strengths in welding and sewing have been evident ever since Stanfast (formerly Fairweather Canvas Company) was founded in 1965. Originally a company that manufactured the Stanfast Annexe, our attention to detail has remained ever since, and is evident in all of the shade covers we manufacture.
