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.

Fabric & Colour

Custom Shade Sails are available in several fabric types offering you a large range of colours. Sun safety is one of the most important factors when choosing shade fabric, our fabrics are engineered in Australia and subject to rigorous testing, ensuring up to 95.5% UV Protection. Each fabric is fade and tear-resistant and comes with a 5-15 year UV warranty (depending on fabric type). Made from rot-resistant high-density polyethylene, this fabric is 100% recyclable, lead and phthalate-free and one of the only fabrics on the market to be Oeko-Tex® 100 and Greenguard® certified.

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.

All Custom Shade Sails come with a complete hardware kit. Our hardware kits contain everything you’ll need to fly your sail.

  • Turnbuckles
  • “D” shackles

Turnbuckles are used to tension your Shade Sail properly and allow for easy and efficient adjustment during the season. D-shackles attach your turnbuckles to the corners of the sail.

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

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. 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.

    The service we received with your company was top notch! From start to finish, we were guided through the process by knowledgeable staff who helped us understand how to measure, where to place the poles, what colour material to pick, what height to install the sail at and finally how to instal the sail at the site. The shade analysis was a definite selling feature and gave us confidence that we were placing the sail in the most effective location. Thank you for making this first experience with your company not only easy but enjoyable!
