A Unique Combination of Passion & Experience

Signature Shade Solutions started with two world class Australian athletes coming together in their new home, Oahu. Combining over 20 years of trade and entrepreneurial skills, Travis Grant and Brad Gaul offer creative and unique shade solutions to the island and beyond.

In 2012, the pair met while representing Australia at the World Paddle Board Titles in Peru. Their drive and motivation to be the world’s best at standup paddleboard, outrigger canoe, and prone paddleboard led them both to Hawaii, the ultimate water arena and home to the famous Molokai to Oahu race. Travis and Brad now hold multiple World Titles in SUP, OC1, and Paddle Board.

Brad, a carpenter by trade, established a successful shutter and blind business in Australia more than 10 years ago. His expansive industry knowledge and strong manufacturer partnerships allow Signature Shade Solutions to provide the best possible products and innovative designs to their customers.

Travis, an experienced upholsterer, has worked closely with designers and manufacturers in both the domestic and commercial markets for over 18 years. Well-versed in problem solving to creatively customize unique solutions for homes, businesses, and marine applications, his skills are an essential part of the company.

Together, Brad and Travis form the ultimate team. The work done by Signature Shade Solutions is a direct reflection of their love for Hawaii and its people. The combination of their experience, skills, and knowledge with their innate drive to succeed produces a product and work ethic comparable to none. Plus, it’s fun to listen to their accent…

Expert Customers Agree

Travis and Brad are total professionals. They really spent the time to understand what our needs were before offering a solution. We have full southern exposure on Round Top and our master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows so it was getting really hot, making it unusable during the day. Travis visited multiple times at different points to get a real sense of what was going on and explain what the pros and cons of each option were. In the end, he came up with a perfect solution for our budget, and we couldn’t be happier. We are going to consult them again for another area that seems vulnerable in high winds to be more prepared in case of hurricanes.”


“I love the way my new roller shades allow the light to come in, but still maintain my privacy. And, my plants love it too! Travis and Brad are so good at finding the perfect solution.”


“Travis and Brad are so enjoyable to work with. They were really knowledgeable about their products and helped me find the right outdoor shade solution for my home. I will be calling them if we ever need other blinds or shutters.”
