Shade Analysis & Design Rendering

Shade analysis plays a vital role in creating the ultimate outdoor space. Making sure you receive shade at the correct time of day is essential to ensuring your comfort and getting the most out of your shade product. Visualization is also an important part of the design process and being able to clearly see what your space will look like once your shade product is installed can help in many ways. Our Shade Analysis and Design Rendering service includes a custom 3d rendering, showing the shade pattern typical for midday in July, 3 to 4 views around your space and adaptations at no extra charge.

Construction

To ensure a shade sail looks and performs at its best, tension needs to be applied correctly. Our Custom Shade Sails are handmade in Canada to the specifications of our patented construction method ensuring maximum longevity and safety.

  1. Advanced Tensioning System – Sails made with fabric/belt perimeter have issues with longevity and tension, especially after the first year of use. Our ATS system includes a stainless steel cable that runs along the perimeter of your sail ensuring equal tensioning, increased water run-off and zero-stretch, lengthening the life of your sail.
  2. Triple-Layered Reinforced Corners –  Our reinforced corners allow increased levels of tensioning, improving the aesthetic of the sail and its performance in wind and rain.
  3. Double-Stitched Seams – Poorly constructed seams can lead to fraying and strain on a sail’s perimeter. We double stitch our seams with high-quality UV-stabilised thread ensuring a clean even look throughout the perimeter of your sail.
  4. Non-Continuously Cabled Corners – A significant upgrade from our standard-sized shade sails, the cable in your custom shade sail is terminated at each corner as opposed to running continuously throughout the perimeter, allowing each side of your shade sail to be tensioned individually.

Hardware

Danish-Made Marine-Grade 316 Stainless Steel

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.

There are two types of hardware

  1. Attachment Hardware (included) – All custom shade sails come with a complete hardware kit to attach your shade sail to your anchor points. This includes turnbuckles, which are used to tension your Shade Sail properly and allow for easy and efficient adjustment during the season and D-shackles, which attach your turnbuckles to the corners of the sail.
  2. Anchor Point Hardware (sold separately) – This hardware creates anchor points on your posts and/or structure where you will attach your shade sail to. The anchor point hardware you will need will depend entirely on your space and is therefore sold separately. Anchor point hardware can be viewed here and purchased on the Anchor Point Hardware page in our Custom Shopping Cart.

**Please Note: The hardware shown may differ from what you receive based on the size and design of your shade sail.

Shade Sails Traveller

Inspired by our nautical roots, the Shade Sails Traveller system facilitates an adjustment to the positioning of the corner of your shade sail, allowing you to move the corner and accommodate a wider range of sun positions. As a pulley system, the Traveller can also be used to apply final tensioning to the Shade Sail.

Kit includes

  • One main pulley and cleat unit
  • Two mini pulleys for the top & the bottom of the track
  • 1 stainless steel rope cleat
  • 5ft track and screws
  • Nylon rope

FAQs & Important Information

Are the sides of a shade sail straight or curved?

The sides of a shade sail are curved to ensure proper tensioning. The amount of the curve (catenary curve) depends on the shape of the shade sail and can be adjusted when ordering a custom shade sail. A standard catenary curve is 7%; this percentage relates to the distance between attachment points. If—as shown in the diagram below—the distance from A to B is 10 feet, a 7% catenary curve is 8.4 inches (7% of 120 inches). This is the distance—shown in white—from the midpoint between the two attachment points (A & B) to the midpoint in the curve of the shade sail (C). Curvature is not solely for tensioning purposes, it can be increased (to go around a tree or other obstruction) or decreased in some cases. Our design software automatically optimizes the catenary curve for each design.  Please get in contact with our design team for any unique requirements.

Are shade sails waterproof?

Most shade sails are not waterproof unless you are using a waterproof fabric, however, one of the reasons we suggest varying the heights of your posts/attachment points is to encourage water run-off. When your sails are sloped and tightened correctly, the majority of the water will run off to the side of the sail, with only a fine mist making it through the mesh. Heavy rain is not an issue if the sail has a significant slope and is very tight. If you would like to view our waterproof shade sails you can do so here.

    Top-notch product and service. The staff were very helpful in assisting with the design of a sail for our rooftop terrace, one corner of which is attached to a post anchored by a heavy planter box. Installation was straightforward, but some strength was required. A small issue with the hardware we received was corrected efficiently at no charge. Highly recommend both the product and the company!

    I wish to provide a review of the Custom Shade Sails that we purchased for our school Outdoor Classroom. Because of needing to find donations to fund this purchase, I began the process of acquiring them long before actually committing to do so but, regardless, the team at Shade Sails Canada we very accommodating to our timeline and needs. Once the order was made, our Shade Sails arrived in a timely fashion and we were not disappointed with the product in any way. There were many colors to choose from which enabled us to get them in our school colors, which is great!

    A local carpenter easily installed our sails, using the information shared. With these shade sails, our students were able to enjoy this outdoor area in comfort. Thank you, Shade Sails Canada for your professionalism and for providing a product that we plan to use for many years to come!

    We finally were able to enjoy some shade on our back patio after purchasing and installing a custom shade sail from Shade Sails Canada. Brydon was very accommodating in answering our questions and providing some very useful guidance and tips about the order process and installation requirements. We should have done this sooner! Love the shade sail.

    We have had so many rave reviews about the shade sail from visitors to our gallery. It's over a picnic spot by a pond. Graham suggested that we angle the posts and that made a huge difference to the aesthetic. Just love it!

    Great support through the whole process of designing and ordering and great video tutorials for installation. The product has taken a largely unusable space (due to summer heat) and has transformed it into an enjoyable family space both for at home work and entertainment. Thanks Shade Sails Canada!

    We are so pleased with our shade sail! The quality is top shelf. Thank you to Graham, Gareth, and Kristyn for thei assistance, responsiveness, and positive attitude. We are in a high wind location. Consequently, the shade sail had to be more than just the “run of the mill” sail. Research brought me to Shade Sail Canada and they met expectations from the very first contact. Thorough, friendly, attention to detail, informative and quick to respond to any inquiry made the choice of going with Shade Sail Canada easy. Now that we have our Sail we realize it was the perfect choice!

    Already, we have gotten many compliments.

    I absolutely love my Shade Sail from Shade Sails Canada! I was not really sure what hardware to order and had no idea how to design the proper look for my outdoor space and from the moment I contacted Shade Sails Canada, I was given the perfect customer service experience. I worked closely with a few designers who helped me complete a rendering, and also to have some support to take the measurements (I was provided wth an online tool to input the measurements to make sure the margin of error was accurate). Any time I had questions, the sails team always answered the phone and were willing to email me promptly with any additional information which was straight forward and clear. I would highly recommend anybody ordering from this company. Also, I wanted to add that the shade sail quality is phenomenal and very well made. I love that this is a Canadian company too (even more of a plus).

    Shade Sails Canada made installing and ordering our shade sail as painless as possible. We relied on the expertise of numerous staff to get the best fit for our circumstances, and we absolutely love how it turned out. The shade sail itself is made of excellent quality materials, and is very easy to install. Our yard has gone from being unpleasantly hot from 1-5pm, to being the space we want to use for the whole afternoon. An unexpected benefit of the sail is that it has created better atmosphere in the backyard, hiding some wires from view, while still showing plenty of beautiful blue sky. I’m so glad we went with Shade Sails Canada.

    Great product, high quality materials and workmanship and made right here in Canada! We love our shade sail, looks really nice on the timber pergola we just put up. We live on the waterfront and get exposed to some strong winds but the sail is super sturdy and barely moves in the wind. We used to have to put the patio umbrella away on windy days but now we have a nice big shady patio to sit on, even when the wind blows!

    Ordering was relatively easy and Gareth was very helpful during the ordering process. We’ll be sure to recommend your company to others.

And, the shading coverage exceeded my expectations. Bill

    Quality: Excellent, we got the commercial light fabric and it looks and feels very high quality and thick.

    Support: Excellent, the team supported us with the numerous questions and worked with us to ensure that the somewhat odd shapes we had would work.

    Assembly: Could use some Popeye's spinach :D... Following the videos made the job easier, but it was very challenging to attached the last anchor point (could have used more muscles). There's a lot of tension!!!

    Overall: The sails went up this weekend, as of this moment in time, we couldn't be happier. It is cooler under the shades.
