Standard Sized Triangle Shade Sail


(21 customer reviews)

A Triangle Shade Sail is an excellent choice for those who have minimal attachment options. Offering less shade than a square or rectangular Shade Sail, a Triangle Shade Sail is typically lighter and perfect for those who have, for instance, two anchor points on their house and one post. All Standard-Sized shade sails come with our Advanced Tensioning System.

    Shade Sail


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.

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.

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 Triangle Hardware kit will include:

  • Three Kwik Klips
  • Two 3/16″ twist “D” shackles
  • One 1/4 inch Turnbuckle
  • Two 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.

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.

    We purchased shade sails for a summer camp for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The installation was a fun team project and the sails have served their purpose beautifully. Thank you!

  2. Mark Santi (verified owner)

    My shade sails have been creating that wow factor for my guests since I installed them! Fit, finish, and quality make these the best shades you can sail!

  3. Greg Ruddell (verified owner)

    Excellent product and support. Videos and instructions made planning and installation straightforward. Three seasons in and the sails still look like new. Everyone loves the look!

    We were looking for a shade solution that was unique, functional and heightened the aesthetic of our deck. We considered pergolas and other structures but none had the dynamic we desired. Once we began considering shade sails we knew immediately this was the solution we were looking for. We researched various sites and big box stores to find our dimensions but no one had what we needed in our style, colour or quality. made it easy to find our preferences and gave us the flexibility to experiment with different options for our deck. At first, we thought one sail would do but the minimal cost and effort to add a second made it worth it to order another! The customer service offered by Shades Sails Canada representatives gave us confidence our needs would be met and demonstrated confidence in their products. Now we enjoy beautiful mornings under our sails having a coffee and afternoon BBQs with our friends! Although we usually pay attention to weather and take our sails up and down with ease, our sails have even endured severe weather winds when the odd storm has surprised us. All said, we are extremely satisfied with the results of our sails from and receive multitudes of compliments from people coming for a visit or passers-by in our neighborhood, as our house is a corner lot next to the sidewalk.

    We first saw sails when we visited Australia and loved the concept but did not know where to obtain sails in Canada. While searching the web I found Shade Sails Canada and was delighted when they had exactly what I wanted. They provided videos of DIY projects and I got personal advice and help from the local supplier in Orillia ON. I built and installed the posts myself and Shade Sails helped with the design and hardware requirements. They perform wonderfully and have survived some pretty vicious wind storms. I do take them down and store them for the winter and they are quite easy to reinstall in the spring with the hardware provided. They are extremely durable and have survived direct sun for 4 years now.

    Most people around our trailer park opt for traditional roll-out canopies, those prefab metal/fabric gazebos, or fibreglass and foam panels for their decks, but we decided to go with something a little bit different. We bought the 12x12x17′ Nor’Wester right triangle in cayenne with the tensioning kit. It was really easy to install, and not only provides a great shelter from the sun, it’s also great looking too – we receive compliments on it all the time!

  7. Vanessa Breadner (verified owner)

    We love the Shade Sail. We lost our large ash tree to the Emerald Ash Borer beetle. We will replace with a new tree but it will take 20 years before it can provide shade to our back deck. The Shade Sail has worked out well, instant shade ! The video’s were very helpful !

  20. Laura (verified owner)

    We’ve had our sunshade for three seasons now and it’s stood up well to south facing sun all summer long! Kids love playing in the cool sandbox now too!
