How to Install a Shade Sail?

Shade sails are a great way to create a stylish, functional outdoor space. They can be used to cover a variety of outdoor spaces including decks, gardens and even swimming pools. They also provide ample protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

Style & Substance:
The best shade sails have UV protection (more than 90 percent blockage), versatile features (color, size, and shape), a sag-proof design and longevity. They should also offer a breathable material that allows light breezes to pass through.

Shape & Installation:
Most shade sails come in rectangles, squares or triangles and are designed to be attached to supports in the corners of the fabric with either metal D rings or integrated webbing loops. They’re tensioned using a winch that virtually eliminates flapping in the wind and minimizes the occurrence of 'puckers' or fabric folds.

Twisting the Corners into a Hyperbolic Paraboloid:
In order to maximize strength and ensure that rainwater can’t accumulate, many shade sails are positioned flat or twisted into what’s known as a hyperbolic paraboloid, or “hypar twist.” This three-dimensional shape is achieved by attaching one or two corners higher than the rest of the sail.

Whether you’re looking to add some much-needed shade to your home’s patio or need a more permanent solution for your restaurant, a shade sail can be the perfect answer. They’re easy to install and come in a variety of colors to match your decor, and many come with built-in features like D-rings or reinforced seams that make them durable and sturdy.
