Construction

To ensure a shade sail looks and performs at its best, tension needs to be applied correctly. Our Standard 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.

Fabric & Colour

Standard-Sized Shade Sails are made from our Commercial Light fabric and come in 5 colours. Sun safety is one of the most important factors when choosing shade fabric, Commercial Light fabric is engineered in Australia and subject to rigorous testing, ensuring up to 95.5% UV Protection. It is fade and tear-resistant and comes with a 10-year UV warranty. 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.

Hardware Kits

Marine-Grade 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.

Our Shade Sails hardware kits contain all of the hardware you’ll need to fly your sail. Your Quadrilateral Hardware Kit will include:

  • Four Kwik Klips
  • Two 3/16″ twist “D” shackles
  • Two 1/4 inch Turnbuckles
  • Four 1/4 inch “D” shackles

Kwik Klips are used on each corner of the sail, connecting either your turnbuckle or your D-shackle to your attachment point. Kwik Klips are specifically designed to allow for great ease when putting up and taking down your Shade Sail. Turnbuckles are used to tension your Shade Sail properly and allow for easy and efficient adjustment during the season. ¼ D-shackles attach your turnbuckles to your Kwik Klips and the corners of the sail and the longer 3/16 twist D-shackles are used to attach the remaining Kwik Klips to the corners without turnbuckles.

Please note, anchor point hardware will need to be purchased separately, you can view this here.

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.

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

Have you considered a custom?

Custom-Sized Shade Sails offer a variety of benefits over Standard Sized Shade Sails.

  1. Ease of Design – Instead of picking a standard size and then trying to fit your posts and attachment points around the size of your shade sail, you supply the measurements of your space and we design a custom shade sail to fit that space perfectly.
  2. Better Tensioning & Longevity – Because the sail is made specifically for your space, there is no slack in your sail ensuring the best possible aesthetics and a longer lifespan.
  3. Fabric & Colour Options – Custom-sized shade sails are available in over 50 different colours spanning 4 different types of fabric.
  4. Non-Continuously Cabled Corners – A significant upgrade from our standard-sized shade sails, the cable in a 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.

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.

    We love our red shade sail! It perfectly shades our new deck but lets cooling breezes through. The quality of the material and the stunning hardware that we purchased to hang it with are superb. We also can't say enough about customer service. We had many questions as we debated sizes and styles and each question was answered personally and promptly. When it came time to fly our sail, we had some anxious moments but 15 minutes on the phone with Shade Sails Canada eased our mind and gave us confidence we could do this! We are thrilled with the results!

    Bought a $50 shade sail online first because I though shade sail Canada was too expensive. The money you spend on Shade Sails Canada is worth every penny. The construction/build is outstanding. Everything feels so sturdy. The warranty also gave my wife and I comfort. Customer service was outstanding. The sales rep called me twice to make sure I was able to assemble my shade sail properly. Great product.

    We bought a 17' x 17' sail to cover our new deck and hot tub. The deck and hot tub are on the south facing side of our cabin, and the shade sail worked perfectly on those very hot days! We also experienced many many windy days this summer (50 - 75 km/per hour gusts) and the sail stayed solid.

    We love our Shade Sail! My husband has had skin cancer and he now has to be so careful with spending any time outside in the sun. We life in Edmonton and it is always sunny with very few clouds. We have invested a lot of our time in our landscaping in order to enjoy time together outside, however, we could never sit together because my husband needed constant shade. He spent much time researching what type of covering we could install to fix our problem and we are so happy that we purchased our Shade Sail because it has made a world of difference. Everyday we can enjoy our deck any time of the day. Our Shade Sail is exactly the quality we were looking for and very easy to install. We were surprised by the protection it provides and it is even quite cool on the hottest days. This product is quality and we highly recommend it to all our friends and the various people walking by on the path behind our house who often stop to inquiry where we bought it and they always mention just how cool it looks.

    The sail came in super fast and had everything we needed to install it. Went up with minimal effort. We get lots of compliments about the look and feel. We recommend Shade Sails Canada all the time! Best part of our experience was being able to call and ask questions before we ordered. We got the owner on the phone right away and felt great about what we had planned. Awesome service! Awesome quality! We will be getting another one next season for sure for another deck area. Thank you!

    Here on the Sunshine Coast in BC, my brand new, rebuilt sundeck, deserved a brand new look and improved function! The final touch was my shade sail ordered from Shade Sail Canada. Kind of like putting on your nicest sun hat to go with your best summer outfit. The shade sail arrived quickly, was easy to install, is easy to take down, is great quality and keeps the beating summer sun (remember the sun?) off my patio doors and selected seating. A happy decision and a great product!

    Excellent product. Very durable, yet light enough that one person can set it up. Material prevents water from pooling yet provides shade needed. The latch hoops and the tightening mechanism is easy to use and effective at maintaining certain degree of tightness. Colour matches well with house brick. Folds away easily and does not crease. Quite happy since it's size provides shade to the whole patio.

    We built a large deck on our south facing yard with plans of enjoying it every summer. In reality we discovered it was way too hot with direct sun pounding down on us. We started looking for a simple solution that wouldnt be too big and expensive or overpower our back yard. We decided to order our shade sail with all the stainless hardware. We put in a couple of posts with cranks and mounted the other side directly to the house. It is super simple to take down during winter or storms. We now get to enjoy our deck whenever we like. An added bonus is that it blocks some sun going to our large windows which drops the temperature inside the house considerably. I always recommend shade sails to friends and family and will continue to do so.

We found that it is not the correct size after trying to install the sail this summer. Shade Sail Canada is now helping us find the correct solution for our patio area. They are willing to do an exchange for us even after 1 year. No other company will do that. It's really amazing.
