Handmade with Love in Canada

Our premium Custom Shade Sails can be cut to fit almost any shape and configuration. All Custom Shade Sails have stainless steel cable sewn into the perimeter pocket of the sail. This allows the Sails to tension better and more evenly making the sail much more rigid in its flight.

Our Shade Sails are manufactured in Canada using UV stabilised high-density polyethylene (HDPE) shade fabric and UV stabilised sewing thread. Each corner is reinforced using multiple layers of shade cloth and stainless steel rings. Our Shade Fabric comes in two lines, Commercial-Grade Light & Commercial-Grade Heavy; both come in unique colour options, which can be seen in the gallery. We stand behind both of these lines, however, Commercial-Grade Heavy is a higher-grade fabric.

Shade Sails Canada guarantees its products and we only deal in optimum quality. Trained by experts in the field in Australia our knowledge and expertise is our biggest asset in our ability to deliver the best quality Shade Sail, we guarantee it.

Fabric & Colour

Custom Shade Sails are available in a range of colours. Our Commercial-Grade Light fabric, shown below, is suitable for the vast majority of small to medium-sized sails, however, if you are spanning over a larger distance, we recommend going with a heavier weight fabric to maximise the longevity of your sail. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about which fabric would be the most suitable for your space. If you are looking for a heavier fabric or are interested in waterproof or dual-colour fabric, please sse our fabric page and contact us for more information.

Hardware Kits

Marine-Grade Stainless Steel

All Custom Shade Sails come with a complete hardware kit. Our hardware kits contain everything you’ll need to fly your sail. All of our hardware is high load rated and made from marine grade stainless steel, offering the highest quality for all conditions.

  • Turnbuckles
  • “D” shackles

Turnbuckles are also 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.

Advanced Tensioning System

Stainless Steel Cable

All premium shade sails come with our Advanced Tensioning System as standard. The ATS system consists of a stainless steel cable ensuring equal tensioning, increased water run-off and zero -stretch, lengthening the life of your Shade Sail. Each sail also comes with cable clips used to secure the tension in the cable.

Ready to Fly

If you’re purchasing hardware with your Shade Sail (which we highly recommend) we now offer the option to have your hardware preassembled and attached to each corner before it is shipped, saving you time and reducing errors when installing.

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!
