Proper Slope Required for water runoff
Sunbrella fabric is water resistant, and shade sails made from this fabric have to be installed with at least a 20 degree slope to allow water to run off and not pool on top of the sail. The chart at the right lists measurements for the amount of vertical drop recommended based on the size of the sail. Measurements are rounded.

Reinforced Perimeter – Webbing or Cables
Residential Sails come with 1-1/2 inch UV inhibitive reinforcement webbing, which is standard for normal residential use in sails up to about 325 square feet. 1-1/2 inch webbing is rated with an approximate 1,800 pound break strength. For larger shade sails or in areas that experience above average high winds, 2 inch webbing with an approximate break strength of 5,500 pounds is recommended. (Reinforced 1/8 inch cables with a break strength of approximately 2,000 pounds and 1/4 inch cables with a break strength of approximately 6,000 pounds are also available) Each corner has a welded, solid, marine grade, stainless steel attachment ring to aid in attaching the shade sail to a structurally strong attachment point.
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.
We offer a variety of shapes and sizes
Sunbrella Shade Sails are available in several sizes, colors, and shapes, including squares, rectangles, equilateral triangles, and right angle triangles. Each sail comes with user friendly instructions for installation. Due to the limited widths available for Sunbrella fabrics, there will be seams approximately every 40-57 inches.
When calculating the size of the shade sail that you would need for a certain area, be sure to allow for about 12 to 18 inches of space between the shade sail’s d-rings and the mounting points for the necessary mounting hardware including turnbuckles. It is better for the shade sail to be too small than too large. If it is too large, you will not be able to tighten when necessary, but if they are too small, you can still attach the sail to the mounting points with the help of a few lengths of chain or a piece of aircraft cable.
Due to manufacturing tolerances and fabric stretch, finished shade sail dimensions may vary 1.5″ +/-.
Note: Due to the available Sunbrella fabric widths, and depending on the size ordered, your shade sail may have seams.
