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.
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″ +/-.
Note: Due to the available Commercial 95 fabric widths, and depending on the size ordered, your shade sail may have seams.
