Shade sails are an innovative and aesthetically pleasing way to create shaded spaces outside of the home or business. At home, they allow you to cover your patio, swimming pool area, gardens, children's play areas, cars and other vehicles, and virtually any outdoor area that you would like to be protected from the sun. Businesses find shade sails valuable for creating shade in courtyards, outdoor break areas, and open air restaurants. Shade sails can be mounted to practically any surface and are simple to install. Now you can create a shaded area anywhere around your home, yard, or business.
Commercial 95 fabric by Synthesis is breathable and helps to keep you cool and comfortable even in hot weather. This rugged fabric is covered by a limited 10 year fabric warranty and provides you with a UV protection factor of up to 98 percent. This state-of-the-art material is resistant to moisture and extreme temperatures. Additionally, because Commercial 95 fabric is knitted, not woven, it won't tear or fray. The perimeter of each sail contains seat belt-type webbing for increased strength and durability, and it is designed with a gentle catenary curve inwards towards the center of the sail to control fabric tension. Each corner has a welded, solid, marine grade, stainless steel attachment ring to aid in attaching the sail to a structurally sound fixing point. When installed properly, shade sails do not sag or flap in the wind. Commercial 95 fabric is not waterproof.
Why do Shade Sails have Curves in the sides?
The perimeter of each sail is designed with a curve (also referred to as a gore) inwards towards the center of the sail to control the fabric tension. Shade Sails have reinforced webbing around the perimeter and marine stainless steel d-rings or "Delta" rings at each corner. Years ago, people would hang up a tarp with straight sides and grommets in the corners over what they wanted to protect or to shade an area. The grommets in the corners of the tarp were attached and tensioned to the mounting points. The outside edges of the tarp would be tensioned tight, however the middle of the tarp would sag and flap in the wind. So curves were put in the edges of the perimeter and once the corners were pulled, that would attempt to straighten out the curves in the sides, but they could not because they were attached to the fabric in the center of the shade sail. This effect would in turn tighten up the fabric in the center of the shade sail. This eliminates the sagging or loose fabric like in the middle of the tarp with the grommets. When properly tensioned, the fabric will not wrinkle, sag, or flap in the wind.
When you supply us with the mounting point measurements, the shade sails are designed with a reduction of approximately 10 percent of your attachment point measurements (see example on right). This is done to allow enough space for the mounting hardware and to tension the sail. All final measurements will be approximate due to tolerances during the fabricating process.
Due to manufacturing tolerances and fabric stretch, finished shade sail dimensions may vary 1.5" +/-.
Sail Shades are very easy to install; they can be attached to homes, trees, or free standing steel poles or wooden posts. They can be connected to a house or between buildings with the proper hardware. In an open area they will need to be supported by wood posts or steel columns embedded in concrete footings, and they can be left up year round or easily removed for seasonal use. NOTE* it is recommended that they be taken down in areas of the country that receives snow regularly. Snow loads could possibly cause damage to them if they are left up year round.
Note: Due to the available Commercial 95 fabric widths, and depending on the size ordered, your shade sail may have seams.

Note: Some shade sail shapes and sails with additional corners will have additional costs. There is a 50 square foot minimum charge for custom orders.
Right angle triangle shade sails with short edges that are less than 1/2 the length of the longest edge are not recommended because you end up with a very narrow shade sail.
