Sail Fabric, Frames & Materials

So Many Possibilities So You Get Just The Shade You Need

Shade structures bring beauty and function to any outdoor area where protection from harmful UV rays, heat and inclement weather is a priority. The durability and affordability of tensile structures are second to none when compared to other traditional construction methods.

We understand the importance of visual appeal when it comes to shade structures. That’s why at Creative Shade Solutions we offer the best selection of shade structure models, shapes, sizes and colors to help you design a covered outdoor space that fits your needs, style and budget.

Sail Cloth Colors

Our tensile shade sails are made of durable, high-density polyethylene shade fabric that is often used to create awnings, sails, fabric structures and shade covers. A huge benefit of our high-performance cloth is its ability to “breathe.” Cool breezes flow freely through the fabric fibers lowering the temperature under our shade structures by 15-20 degrees.

This type of commercial-grade, architectural shade fabric can block up to 98.8% of harmful UV rays and withstand winds up to 90 mph. We offer a 10-year fabric warranty against the sun and UV degradation and guarantee full code compliance for the installation of shade structures and sails to ensure maximum lifespan.

Durable Frames

The safety of our customers is of utmost importance. That’s why we partner with the best structural engineers to ensure that all steel posts are the correct size and structurally sound. Our products are made to last with corrosion-resistant metals, zinc-plating, galvanizing and powder coating.
