Coolaroo® Coolhaven Shade Sails
Use a Coolaroo Coolhaven Shade Sail to Cover and Cool Your Patio
Coolaroo® Coolhaven Shade Sails can provide sun protection just about anywhere. Decks, patios, pool areas, gardens, children’s play areas, car spaces, and even entry ways can all benefit from the installation of a Coolhaven Shade Sail.
Shade sails are available in different fabrics and fabric weights. Coolaroo Coolhaven shade sail fabric is a high density polyethylene material that is exceptionally durable and resistant to moisture, mildew, and rot. High density polyethylene shade sails are weighted in grams per square meter(gsm) and usually range from around 120 gsm to 340 gsm. A shade sail using a 340 gsm fabric will be a more densely knitted fabric than a 200 gsm fabric. The denser the fabric, the higher the UV protection. A quality shade sail will use stainless steel D-rings in the corners and will have reinforced edges.
The perimeter of each shade sail is designed with a gentle curve inwards towards the center of the sail to control fabric tension. Shade sails have reinforced webbing around the perimeter and a stainless steel Delta ring at each corner. When tension is placed on the shade sail, the fabric will not wrinkle. Shade sails do not sag or flap in the wind. The material is not waterproof.
