Our custom-made semi-permanent shade sails are installed on 139mm diameter steel (galvanised or zinc and powder coated) or stainless steel posts. They are designed to be in place for most of the year and feature reinforced corners, a sleeved hem with a stainless steel rope within and stainless steel adjustable rigging screws to tension. They can be made to pretty much any shape and look great when layered or multiple shades are used. Hypar shade sails are also shown in picture number two.
Your shade sail can be manufactured in three different fabrics, Marine Grade Canvas, (PVC) Ferrari Pre Contraint and Soltice 86 UV Protection cloth. All are suitable but it depends on whether the shade sail is intended to be water-resistant or for shade only.
We offer free telephone consultations and quotations. If you decide to go ahead with your order we can carry out a full site survey to consider the direction of sunlight, your requirements, feasibility and your design options. Additionally, we offer a full measure and installation service or we can work to your dimensions, and provide remote support for measuring and installation.
Due to the rigging screws and fixings at each corner, the cover usually starts around 250mm from the fixing point. We also put an arc on the edge of the Shadesail which looks great and allows for even tensioning of the fabric. It’s a good idea to consider this within your design, as it does impact the amount of shade you are going to achieve.
We recommend keeping any single-span below our 6m to not compromise the ability for water to run off and not pool in the cover. If you are looking to cover a larger area, then layering or joining a series of shades can be a more effective solution.
We don’t advise wall brackets unless the wall is very strong, double-skinned or a Steel portal building. If you want to fix a wall, we cannot guarantee the structural integrity of your existing structure ( and a disclaimer will be made). If wall brackets are required, we usually make a 300mm square steel plate with 4 fixing holes and chemical anchor the bolts through to the interior wall of the building for added strength.
These water-resistant shade sails can withstand most British weather, except for snow loading. If you cannot guarantee the shades will be kept clear of snow, we recommend removing them in winter.
We recommend a pitch of at least 20-25 degrees to shed water.
