When it comes to providing shade, we have an excellent team that can provide you with ideas and a range of sail designs to suit every possible need.
We’ve got a couple of general tips that can help you make the most informed decision possible.
- DON’T get a shade that is too small. When planning your shade, be sure to track the sun for different times of the day.
- DON’T forget to angle your shade. Think about how the sunlight is going to come from overhead and the angle it will hit the sail.
- DON’T install your shade too low. Height is all-important to ensure that when you sit down to relax, you get the shade you are hoping for.
- DON’T use it near an open flame. Even having been treated with a fire retardant chemical it is suggested that you do not use it at an open fire, fire pits, and chimineas.
- If you choose to go with a triangular shade sail but you’re still keen on significant protection, consider layering two triangles across one another for a statement look that’s functional too.
- Make sure our selection complements your space. For example, if you’ve got an existing source of shade – like a veranda – consider attaching sunshade for extended coverage.
- Lastly, consider using turnbuckles to provide the additional tensioning ability and keep your sail tight. Sails can stretch and loosen up of time
