Top honours for pool sails

A unique shade sail design by a local Cairns business has been recognised as the industry's best at the 2017 Specialised Textiles Awards.

Pickers Vinyl & Canvas used specific German fittings to fulfil Council's design requirements for the large project.

The 2017 Specialised Textiles National Awards featured entries from throughout Australia and overseas. Judges evaluate overall design complexity and finished project details.

The redeveloped Tobruk Memorial Pool was officially opened on 14 May 2016. The $23.7 million project delivered a FINA-accredited competition pool, two 25m heated pools, a FlowRider and toddler splash pool. Shade over all formal spaces was a key element in the project's design.
