Shade sails are highly durable, temporary or permanent and form an effective way to enjoy the outdoors safe from both heat and
ultra violet radiation.
Perfect for a summer barbecue or providing a shaded area for the back yard Shade Sails are usually either triangular or
quadrilateral in shape so depending on which design is decided upon, there will be three of four points needed for fixture.
Allowing the free movement of air under the awning creates an additional cooling effect within the shade.
Independent support posts will be either aluminium or wood in manufacture. Wooden posts can be treated for protection and aluminium does not rust so neither style requires much in the way of maintenance. Whichever material is chosen a variety of stabilising fixtures in and to the ground can be used. It is possible to attach the sail to a permanent outbuilding or the house itself if that fits in with the space that you have allocated to be covered. Fixtures to the sail need to be installed with the correct equipment so that the proper tensions are brought to bear at the appropriate points. Installation manuals are standard and a variety of fixtures and fittings can be used to make sure that the cover is stable and set out for long lasting use.
Shade sails are made mostly made from synthetic yarn that is knitted closely to provide a hard wearing and tough material that will not unravel. High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) is one option; another is Polyester High Tenacity (PES HT). These modern fabrics are tear proof, water resistant and provide up to 96% protection against UV rays. The sheet is also wind resistant up to 200 kph so able to withstand the strongest of storms.
Depending on the specific requirements, Shade Sails can be erected in a variety of colours to suit any particular needs.
