Why Buy A Shade Sail For Your House?


A backyard is a place where a lot of happy memories are made. But most backyards don’t have adequate shade or protection to keep it cool & comfortable all the year round. That’s when you know you need a Shade Sail.


Here’s are some great reasons why you should consider buying one.


The Aesthetic Appeal

Shade sails are a great way to add to the aesthetics of your outdoor space. Whether it is your kid's playground, patio, swimming pool, car park, cafe or a garden centre, shade sails can be just what you need to spruce it up. It is a cost-effective way of beautifying any residential or commercial space. Our custom shade sails come in a vast range of colours and can be made to complement any setting.


Great Investment

A Shade Sail makes for a great investment. It is an affordable way to keep your yard cool without doing anything too extreme. The best part is its semi-permanent feature. If you want to change its position, or if you are moving homes, all you have to do is unclip it, fold it and install it in its new location. This feature is what makes it one of our best selling products. Our shade sails can be used wherever shade or a waterproof barrier will make the difference to comfort and safety.


Easy Installation

Shade sails make for a great extension to a property and can be installed and removed easily. Unlike other structures which can take weeks to set up, Shade Sails can be put up in a matter of hours. All our Shade Sails are installed with robust galvanised steel poles which are zinc-coated to increase corrosion resistance. Spending a little time on its maintenance can go a long way in extending the life of your shade sail. Here’s all you need to know about its maintenance.


Full Functionality

A shade sail doesn’t just provide shade or add to the aesthetics, it also protects against ultraviolet rays whilst keeping your outdoor space comfortable and usable all the year round. If installed properly, the Shade Sail can keep the sun from entering the property. Its semi-permeable fabric also allows for circulation of cool air and lowers the temperature of the covered area. Our Shade Sails provide protection from harsh UV rays, reduce the heat and glare of the sun, keep the rain showers off, and block even moderate wind.
