  • Wind resistance: Sail shades are usually strong enough to withstand high-speed winds of up to 85 mph.
  • Reduce solar heat gain: Sail shades prevent increase in temperature of a structure or space due to solar radiation by nearly 100% making air-conditioning more effective.

Q.What do you need to consider before installing a sail shade?

There are many things to consider before installing a sail shade at home. Some of the important ones are:

  • The area that needs to be protected and the conditions in that area, like rain, sunlight, and wind.
  • The size, material and properties of the sail shade available to suit your requirement.
  • The track record of the sail shade installation company for safe, effective and professional installation.
  • The proposed method of installation of the sail shade like angle and fittings to ensure maximum benefit.

Q.How do sail shades compare with tarp?

  1. 100% UV stabilized high density polyethylene, ventilated and water permeable.
  2. Open lock-stitched design to withstand wind and prevent heat build-up.
  3. Lightweight, for easy carriage.
  4. Easy installation, surrounded by wrapping and with a copper hole every one meter.
  5. Reinforced border tape that will not rip or tear.
  6. High resistance to fraying.

Q.How can I extend the life of my sail shade?

Sail shades generally last for about 10 years in normal conditions. However, the life span may decrease due to extreme weather conditions. With little care, the life of a sail shade can be extended. Here are some tips:

  1. Check for sharp objects touching the sale like poles and hooks.
  2. Remove the sail shade if extremely windy weather is predicted.
  3. Check seam stitching to make sure it is intact since UV rays can damage certain threads.
  4. Patch minor tears as soon as possible with a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA). Avoid using duct tape.
  5. Don’t fold sails on the same fold lines to prevent small creases from becoming permanent.

Q.What is a sail shade and what materials are used to make them?

Sail shades are used to provide shade from the sun to your patio, backyard or other outdoor areas of your home. They are also known as sun sails. It serves as the perfect alternative to a traditional pergola or covered porch. Generally, sail shades use a stretchable knitted fabric to create three-dimensional shades. Other materials used to create sun shades are PVC, a more expensive alternative, canvas variations like Aramid-Kevlar fibre (Kevlar is stronger than steel, and lighter), carbon fibre, Dyneema fibre (Dyneema has extremely long molecular chains, therefore enormous breaking strength), and others like nylon fibre, polyester fibre, Technora black fibre, Vectron fibre and woven polyester fabric (Dacron).

Q.What shapes, sizes and colours are sail shades readily available in?

Typical shapes that sail shades are available in are triangle, square, rectangle and kite. They can be ordered in standard sizes like 4x4m, 8x8m, 12x12m and more. Sail shades are available in different colours like beige, dark green and dark blue. Dark coloured sail shades have the advantage of cutting more sunlight and providing more shade than lighter colours, but they look dirtier because of accumulated dust.

Q.Where are sail shades generally installed in a home?

Sail shades are generally installed in the following places in a home - kids play area, patio, balcony, entrance, garden, sand pit, storage shed, swimming pool and car park.
