WHAT ARE SHADE SAILS? Shade sails are used for shade outside of your home. They have a stretched membrane or cloth that is tightly fixed to the poles at each side. Everyone loves to sit outside their home in their front yard, backyard or courtyard. But the weather is always not so favorable. Sometimes it’s too hot because of the sun or sometimes it becomes rainy.
Having shade sails solves this problem and you can go out to enjoy in any weather. The membrane of these shade sails come in a variety of different fabrics. The best fabric would be the one that suits according to the climate of that place.
For places that have excess rainfall, waterproof fabric is best suited. For places that have very bright sunlight, UV protection fabric is good as it protects from harmful rays of the sun too. These shade sails come in a variety of designs and shapes.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHAPE OF THE SAIL : The shades come in triangular, rectangular and square shaped. Each has their own characteristics but all of them work flawlessly in giving you a very nice shade. Rectangular or square shade sails cover up greater area than the triangular one. However, on the other hand the triangular ones can be arranged in different orders making them a treat to the eyes. Having different colors of these also have a very nice effect as you can combine them to give different contrast.
THINGS TO TAKE CARE OF WHILE INSTALLING SHADE SAILS : There are certain things that must be considered during the installation of these shade sails. Firstly, the poles should be strong enough and deep enough in the ground to stand erect in any type of condition. The membrane should be perfectly stretched and shouldn’t flap with the wind.
The membrane should be a little tilted to avoid collection of water at its top. The poles should be of a good material so that they don’t begin to rust. The fabric of the membrane should be of good quality so that it does not lose its grace and characteristics with time. While installing triangular shade sails, no space should be left between adjacent shades.
