A 20° Slope is about a 35% difference of the high and low mounting points
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 above lists measurements for the amount of vertical drop recommended based on the size of the sail. Measurements are rounded.
Additionally, the perimeter of each sail is designed with a gentle curve inwards towards the center of the sail to control fabric tension. This inward curve will be approximately 6-8% of the length of each side of the shade sail. Therefore, when tension is placed on the shade sail, the fabric will not wrinkle or sag. Shade sails, when installed properly, do not sag or flap in the wind. 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.
Note: 1) Due to the available Sunbrella fabric widths, and depending on the size ordered, your shade sail may have seams. 2) Due to manufacturing tolerances and fabric stretch, finished shade sail dimensions may vary 1.5″ +/-. All standard size Sunbrella Equilateral triangle shade sails are made to order. Therefore, all sales are final. No returns or refunds will be accepted. Orders cannot be changed or cancelled after 1 business day from the time the order was placed.
