About us

Almost fifty years ago, one Australian company recognised the opportunity to challenge harsh weather extremes and identified a remarkable solution. That company was GALE Pacific. Through advanced engineering, GALE Pacific pioneered the unique marriage of monofilament and polymer tape technologies to create an entirely new type of knitted fabric. This state-of-the-art fabric blocks out harmful UV rays, yet still allows cool breezes to pass through keeping you cooler.

This know-how and technology lies at the very heart of virtually every Coolaroo product, providing people, plants and places with the ultimate protection from the relentless sun and other weather extremes.

Coolaroo supplies high quality outdoor lifestyle products through retail channels worldwide; our product portfolio includes benchmark quality fabrics that are used to manufacture shading, screening and garden products. We continually strive to be at the forefront of innovation and new product development to consistently meet the needs of our customers and set the standard in all categories.

Our ranges of products are second-to-none and are highly regarded in the industry, setting the standard in quality outdoor leisure products offering superior sun protection. The range boasts a variety of exceptional quality products that include shade fabrics, architectural shade sails, exterior blinds and umbrellas.

The Coolaroo brand has expanded its product range from not only offering sun protection products, but also a large range of garden fabrics, flyscreen kits and  pet products.

Storm distributes the Coolaroo products to most major hardware retail outlets, nurseries and lifestyle centres in South Africa. Storm is a trusted distributor of a wide range of innovative, quality products to the South African market. We offer a range of products  from the Coolaroo outdoor lifestyle products, to the beautiful and functional Lechuza planters made in Germany to outdoor rugs and a wide range of fencing products to suit all needs.
