Shade Sail pros and cons

Shade Sail Pro's 

A Shade Sail provides protection from the sun and looks great in your home’s outdoor areas - covering pools, barbeques, patio areas and spa’s. Shade sails are an aesthetically pleasing shade system that add value to the areas they cover.

They’re ideal for use in public outdoor areas - at shopping centres, car yards, mine sites, community centres, child care centres, construction sites, schools, outdoor playgrounds / activity areas and sporting venues.

Shade Sails can be fabricated in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. In fact our team of expert designers and fabricators can construct just about any Shade Sail to suit just about any shape our customers require.

Shade sails are designed to cover outdoor areas and to provide protection from the harmful effects of the UV rays of the sun. Our Shade Sails are fabricated from premium high grade extra heavy duty cloth offering up to 96% UV protection whilst having the capacity to breathe to allow hot air to flow out.

Shade Sails can be easily removed if necessary.


Shade Sail Con's

Our Shade sails are designed for shade and are not waterproof.

Shade sails must be correctly installed. Your shade sail should be installed firm and tight so as to reduce windflap in the shade fabric. Shade fabric that is loose and sloppy will cause premature failure due to mechanical breakdown. An incorrectly designed and/or installed shade sail will trap water (and other debris) creating excessive load on both the shade sail and it's fixing points.
