Do you need to add shade to your outdoor space, but you’re wondering if Shade Sails are the right fit for you?
Shade sails offer many benefits that make them a great addition to your outdoor spaces. From small backyards to large commercial properties, shade sails can be just what you need.
Here are some of the reasons why you might consider getting shade sails:
1. Protection from the Sun: Shade sails provide effective protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. They can help reduce the risk of sunburn and skin damage, making your outdoor area more comfortable and safe for you and your family.
2. Cooler Environment: By blocking out a significant portion of the sun's rays, shade sails create a cooler and more comfortable environment in your outdoor space. This can be particularly beneficial during hot summer months, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors without feeling overheated. We recorded a 20 degree drop in temperature between turf outside of the shade sail and turf underneath the shade sail.
3. Versatile Design: Shade sails come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing you to choose a design that complements your outdoor aesthetics. Their modern and sleek appearance can enhance the overall look of your space.
4. Customizable Coverage: Custom shade sails can be created to fit just about any space. Overlapping designs, sails with multiple corners and attachment points, even sails with custom curves and cut-outs are all possible with custom-made shade sails. This adaptability allows you to create shaded zones where you need them most AND have a unique and beautiful look for you outdoor space.
5. Cost-Effective: Shade sails can be a more affordable option compared to building permanent structures like pergolas or awnings. There is a range of options for shade sails from cheap, standard-size, off-the-shelf shade sails to more expensive, custom-made, fully installed, commercial-quality shade sails. There is a shade sail option for every budget.
6. Breathable Material: Quality shade sail cloth is made from HDPE thread that is knitted together, this allows the fabric to stretch properly and air to circulate, preventing heat buildup and maintaining a comfortable environment beneath the sail.
7. Protection for Outdoor Furniture: Sun exposure can damage outdoor furniture and other items over time. Shade sails can help extend the lifespan of your furniture by providing a barrier against direct sunlight and other weather elements.
8. Enhanced Privacy: Depending on how you position your shade sails, they can provide an additional layer of privacy for your outdoor space, making it a more enjoyable and secluded area. These are also known as a Privacy Panels.
Remember that while shade sails offer numerous benefits, their effectiveness depends on factors such as the quality of the materials, proper installation, and the specific climate and conditions of your area.
