Our pop-up shade sails (also known as playground shade sails/canopies) are designed to be put up when you want to use them and then taken down again afterwards, protecting you from sun and rain.
They’re fixed with carabiners (so they can be easily installed), adjustable webbing straps (for tensioning) and reinforced hems with a webbing edge (for strength). We offer a full site survey to consider the path of the sun and shading provided, your requirements and feasibility. Free custom designs, water-resistant or shade only, and a wide choice of colours in Marine Grade Canvas, PVC (Ferrari 502 ), or Commercial 95 UV protecting shade cloth.
Removable shade sails do not require such a substantial structure, as they are not designed to be left up, so existing framework like walls and trees can be utilised. We also generally recommend that no single span is greater than 6m, any more than this can be very difficult to hand tension.
These sails are not designed for strong wind, and due to the fact they are hand tensioned, they may not always shed water, depending on how much runoff is built into your design. We recommend a pitch of around 15 degrees, to shed the rain water.
*This type of solution will not protect against snow loading.
