Sick of a Hot Steering Wheel, Searing Seats and Melting when getting into Your Vehicle?

Hate Leaving Your Car Parked in The Sun?

Worried The Sun is Damaging Your Car Interiors when You Can’t Park in The Shade?

Made for Australia’s Extreme Outback Environment, Great Barrier’s Shades are Tough Enough to Handle the Desert, Hot Suburban Streets and Anything in Between


My name is Sarah Coles. I have lived and worked for many years as a pilot in Africa and the Middle East and have used car sun shades all those years, 30 years; never have I come across sun shades that come even close to yours. Well done, a great product. - Sarah Coles, Pilot

I live in Phoenix, Arizona, where it’s currently a hundred-and-teen degrees during the day. I have bought OEM accordian-fold sun shades for my last 2 cars and hated them. They’re so awkward to use and store, they ended up in the trunk. I’ve been searching for a folding sunshade and couldn’t find one anywhere. I selected the Great Barrier Shade because:

1) it has loose fabric around the circles to fill in the corners of my windshield;
2) I was concerned about the proper size for my car, sent an email to Great Barrier, and got an email reply instantly;
3) this product has a lifetime warranty!

This a great company with an excellent product. I first bought (what was at the time) the largest of Great Barrier's sunshades, only to find that it wasn’t quite big enough for my 2014 Honda CRV.

I contacted the company about a return, and got a quick response (i believe from the owner) — so sorry about the problem, don’t worry about returning it, give it to a friend if you like; also, we’re designing a bigger version that should fit your CRV; would you like one — free of charge — when they’re ready? Of course I told them yes, but wasn’t standing on one foot waiting to hear from them again.

Well they were as good as their word. reaching out a few weeks ago to tell me that the shade was ready and asking to confirm that I still wanted it. It came very quickly, fits my windshield well, and is easy to twist into a compact size and stow away.

And while the shade is excellent, I was even more impressed at the communication, follow-through and professionalism shown by this company.

Good on Great Barrier Auto! I see good things in their future! - Molly Dougherty
