At last a better solution than bulky gazebo weights.!
Introducing the **Windguard Shade Anchoring System**
Brisbane Inventor Creig Adams and his team at Windguard have finally developed an integrated anchoring system for all manner of outdoor shade devices that works across grass, sand and concrete.
If you are on concrete or in a no pegging zone then the durable WindGuardian weight bag is added on top of the Windguard plate. These water proof bags are so durable and tough that they can be filled with sand, crusher dust, water or a combination of all three to weigh as much as 20 kgs. They can be dropped or thrown while full of material without rupturing and are much easier and quicker to load and unload due to their very wide shovel sized opening. As these bags are compact and inexpensive they can even be kept in reserve by market co-ordinators and deployed quickly in the event of a sudden storm or rented out as additional ballast for tables or signage.
If operating on grass in an unrestricted pegging zone, the holes in the corners of the Windguard anchoring device allow up to 4 heavy duty pegs of up to 15 mm in diameter to be used to secure the structure in place. If 4 pegs are used and driven in at an angle away from the centre of the device through the outer angled peg holes then the structure can withstand a lifting force of over 100 kg at each corner. This setup is suitable for extended camping trips and backyard trampolines.
If operating on a sandy substrate such as the beach the Windguard attaches to the foot of the structure and is then buried 2-300mm into the sand and flooded with water. This induces a large suction force similar to losing a thong when walking through mud and means it is able to hold down beach umbrellas, 4wd awnings and gazebos on the beach in winds over 20 knots. It can also be used as a lightweight jetski anchor when securing your jetski to the beach.
