About Woodline Shade Solutions

We have been making shades for the international market for over 25 years, and have established ourselves as the market leader in all of Africa.

Since the very start of Woodline in 1990, we have been manufacturing parasols in South Africa, one of Africa’s many developing countries.

We are proud to manufacture each of our products ourselves in our own factories, making sure that each piece meets our standard of excellence, whilst providing jobs and opportunities to skillful artisans. Bolstered by the current expansion to a new purpose-built factory with significant growth potential we are looking forward to a bright future.

Woodline is a reflection of its German Namibian founder, Fritz Walter, who has spent all his life in nature. From fishing for a living in the Atlantic and off trawlers in the frigid waters of Alaska, to farming cattle and game in the Highveld of South Africa, Fritz can’t get enough of the outdoors.

His experiences have taught him that to live, work and relax outside you need the best designed and made products. An outdoor man by birth and a trained engineer, Fritz has unrivaled knowledge and understanding of shade systems.
