Hardware

For outdoor products, high-quality hardware is essential for both the aesthetics and the longevity of your sail. All of our hardware is made from marine-grade forged 316 stainless steel imported from Denmark. High load rated, this material is extremely strong and corrosion-resistant ensuring a polished finish for the life of your hardware.

Each product comes with all of the hardware you’ll need to install your Roman Shade. All of our hardware is high load rated and made from marine grade stainless steel, offering the highest quality for all conditions. Our Romans Shades now include stainless steel roller wheels, which provide a much smoother action when extending and retracting your Roman Shades.

Your Roman Shade hardware kit will include:

  • 2 x length of stainless steel cable
  • 2 x screw eyes
  • 2 x tensioning through bolt
  • 4 x small D-shackle
  • 2 x small twisted D-shackle
  • Stainless steel roller wheels (amount depends on the length of the Roman Shade)

Pulley System

Roman Shade Pulley System Product Page

The Roman Shade Pulley System allows you to extend and retract your Roman Shade from the side of your pergola and securely fasten it in place. The pulley system is made up of nylon rope and stainless steel rope cleats, screw eyes and screws.

  • 2 lengths of nylon rope
  • 2 stainless steel rope cleats
  • 2 welded stainless steel screw eyes
  • 4 screws

The pulley system retails at $49 and can be added to your cart on the accessories page after you have confirmed your measurements.

Size Guide

Minimum Clearance – We recommend a minimum of 1-inch clearance between the sides of your structure and each side of the Roman Shade. If your structure is large enough for multiple Roman Shades we also recommend a 1-inch clearance between each Roman Shade.

Maximum Width – Roman Shades are available in widths of up to 9 feet. If your structure is over 9 feet wide, for maximum amounts of shade, we recommend using multiple Roman Shades. Remember to take into account the space needed for clearance, mentioned above.

Roman Shade Minimum Clearance Requirements

Required Measurements

To ensure your Roman Shade fits correctly, we require the following four measurements at the time of purchase:

Measurement A – The width of your structure. This ensures you have enough clearance between the Roman Shade and your structure.

Measurement B – The length of your structure. This ensures the cable is manufactured to the correct length (we pre-terminate your cables with swages).

Measurement C – The thickness of the beam (where you are attaching your roman shade). This ensures the tensioning bolt is of the correct length to go through your beam.

Measurement D – The width of your Roman Shade. This allows us to ensure there is enough clearance for the Roman Shade to fit into your structure. (Roman Shades have a maximum width of 8′ due to shipping limitations – if you would like to shade an area wider than 8′, we recommend using 2 Roman Shades – see above diagram).

    Having these roman shades on our custom pergola is the best and most satisfying thing. Ordering it was fairly simple with few emails and couple of calls just to make sure all the measurements were precise. Graham was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Thank you Graham for the complimentary pulley system. The only thing that I want to suggest to new buyers is keeping in mind that the installation hardware do take upto to 6 inches of the length. So in our case we would have been ok with 5(2') layers. Total length being 9'8" the system automatically suggests you 6 layers. We liked the layers being more curvy and downwards, but if you like it more flat just talk to them. Installation is easy and will take 1-2 hours having proper tools and extra set of hands. We really liked the product. All the hardware is of good quality as well. Overall shadesail did an amazing job. Keep up the good work.

    Our roman shade is terrific. It provides shade when we need it, but easily retracts to provide sun on cooler days. There were issues in obtaining the product, including due to covid-related supply chain problems. However, throughout the process Shade Sails Canada was helpful in promptly responding to all my inquiries and concerns - their customer service was excellent!

    Looks so good! I purchased 2 roman shades and couldn't be happier. They are excellent quality, very durable and finally provide the shade I need to be able to enjoy my deck in the summer.



    The team at Shade Sail Canada were very helpful answering all my questions. I appreciated the fact that they sent me the sample book to help me choose the perfect colour shade as I then knew there would be no surprises when it arrived.



    I highly recommend this company and their shades.

    The roman shade was easy to install anf fit perfrectly. Thank you fro sending out thye correct length threaded rods which allowed the wire ropes to be installed. The roman shade has been closed since it was erected but I'm sure it will get more use (opening and closing) as the summer progresses. I have sent a night time and day time photograph for your files. Thank you fro the personal assistance and care taken by your team to make this complete. The result will even be better once the landscaping is complete next spring. I'll send more pictures at that time.

    Shade Sails Canada was excellent to deal with as my Roman Shades and associated hardware were both custom due to the pergola design I built. They made it very easy to order and it fits perfectly. The shade quality is excellent and isn't impacted by the rain so I can see why it has a 10 year guarantee. The stainless steel hardware is great because they use pulleys whereas most manufacturers seem to use carabiner type clips which have some friction on the cables. We are extremely happy with the end result as it gives us a very easy option to have an open pergola or full or partial shade.

    We have one custom and two standard roman shades to cover our 12 x 20 elevated deck. They are perfect! Our shades can been seen from the street and we have received numerous compliments from passersby. Within 1 hour of finishing the installation, the shades were subjected to 100kph winds during a thunderstorm and the shades handled it with no issues. Graham and the customer service staff have been wonderful to work with. They have been very responsive to our questions. Thank you so much.

    Am so pleased and excited just had to take a photo and send a review moments after finishing. This is exactly what we wanted! And the installation team found the videos and PDF sent were super helpful. Tell me installation was really straight forward and the pulley system is impressively slick and effective!

    We are all in awe of the shades’ appearance and how much shade it provides. Can’t find a fault with anything. Thank you so much for all your help and hand holding during the process.

    Attached photo shows the just installed Roman Canopy. It was 3 weeks from the day we ordered our custom canopy to the day it was delivered to our front porch. We were very impressed with the quality of the materials and the exacting measurements and fit. Installation was very simple and fast. We opted for the pulley system which works very well and we highly recommend that as well.

    This Roman shade was installed in a 5th (top) floor of a condo. The balcony is in the South East corner of the building. That made our balcony unusable until 6pm every day. This Roman Shade allows us now to enjoy the balcony throughout the day. It is very easy to set up and we enjoy it a lot.

    I was looking for a shade solution for our south facing, full-sun 3rd story walk out, and when I found a made-in-Canada product - Shade Sails Canada. From reading about their shade sails on their website I determined that our existing pergola structure would not allow us to use sails. However, the company also offered standard and custom Roman Shades, and these turned out to be a great solution for us. One of the best things was that I was able to speak and share drawings with Mack in Shade Sail customer/technical service, who answered my questions and offered helpful advice on installation. I was able to specify a custom size and select a custom colour (Aquatic Blue) at a very reasonable cost compared to other US based companies. We are very hands on so had no problems installing the roman shades on our pergola. We needed extra-long welded eye bolts because our pergola had double beams, which Shade Sails supplied at no extra cost. Production and delivery of the shades was fast. Overall we are very happy with our roman shade from Shade Sails Canada and highly recommend them. (Note: photos were taken in the morning before the sun was overhead).

    Delighted with our shade sail. It was the perfect, retractable solution to our need for both privacy (from a new condominium monstrosity constructed at the edge of our terrace), and shade from the afternoon sun without the hassle of erecting and securing multiple umbrellas. It does both perfectly. It was easy to order and even easier to install - soup-to-nuts parts were all present and correct (thank you!!!). It's sturdy as hell - we've had some insane winds this past summer, completely unexpected and without warning (or even time to retract the sail) yet it stayed true, 100% intact and as taut as the day I put it up. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!

    Our deck has always been scorching hot in the summer. The old method of shading the deck involved a couple of patio umbrellas but they could not be used when it was too windy. We installed our shade sail in late spring and could not be happier. It gives us the shade we need and can use it in windy conditions. The quality is top notch as they use stainless steel hardware and the fabric is very durable. Highly recommended!!

    We are loving our shade sail! It's exactly what we wanted. Our one complaint is that it doesn't slide on the cables as easily as we thought it would. It's tough for me to use the pull ring and pull it out. I usually have to pull it out in sections.
    Reply from Shade Sails Canada:
    Great feedback, we listened and have since upgraded the sliding mechanism to stainless steel wheeled pulleys. These pulleys are custom made for Shade Sails Canada Roman Blinds and should give years of trouble-free service.
