Shade sails create outdoor shade based on the basic technology as a ship’s sail. Shade sails use a flexible membrane tensioned between several anchor points. They are usually provided above public gathering places such as seating areas and playgrounds, where strong sun radiation makes prolonged stays in the open sun unpleasant or dangerous due to sunburn and skin cancer risk.
Sail shades protect against the harmful UV rays and shade your outdoor areas. These make beautiful additions to your patio, backyard, or other outdoor areas. Floating and curvaceous, shade sails make an attractive addition to any property, and with the right design, they can enhance the existing property with artistic or architectural flair and style.
Sail shades are wonderfully versatile; they can be attached to homes, trees, or patio columns. In addition, they can be supported by wood posts or steel columns embedded in concrete footings, and they can also be taken down seasonally as required.
The sail shade is particular a perfect solution for courtyards, pool areas, gardens, children’s play area and even entry ways.
The most common fabrics for sail shades are PVC or HDPE, both very durable and resistant to moisture, mildew and rot. In addition, they can be supported by wood posts or steel columns embedded in concrete footings, and they can also be taken down seasonally as required.
