JANEY from SUFFOLK: UNITED KINGDOM
I bought our sail Shade having seen one in a garden I designed. I cant recommend them highly enough great service and product. Thank you

PAUL from MASSACHUSETTS: UNITED STATES
I purchased a triangular shade sale with the heavy commercial fabric. Overall it is very good. The size is approximately 33ft x 28ft x 24ft with 2 sides fixed to my house and one to a 5" diameter structural steel pole set into the earth 6 feet deep with 12cf (1 500 pounds) of concrete footing. This provided very secure non moving attachment points. When ordering I purchased the stainless hardware turnbuckles and specified the allowance for measurements. However upon installation and fully tightening the turnbuckles the sail sagged too much. I was advised by customer service to make the sail tighter by purchasing additional hardware. I had to set aside the provided (purchased) stainless hardware and purchase some additional removable stainless chain links for approximately $120 additional to make the sail tighter. This is unfortunate since I should not have had this problem with accurate actual point to point measurements and the factory providing the hardware allowance. I had to basically buy the hardware twice and no longer have the ability to adjust the tension. Other than that it provides nice shade and handles the wind well. Definitely I would recommend adding a rope light. This worked out well also. Thank you.

PETER from BRUNEI DARUSSALAM
I bought three sails for a commercial installation. I am very happy with the service and the prompt feed back from Roland. The sails arrived earlier than expected in these COVID 19 times. Fitment was excellent. I received emails at times which I did not expect anyone to be working. Keep up the great work Roland.

IAN from VICTORIA: AUSTRALIA
Have marked all questions with a 10/10 I must admitt I was a little sceptical when I purchased the shade sail However to my pleasant surprise every was perfect and could not believe the delivery time. Well done regards Ian

PETER from ONTARIO: CANADA
I am very happy with the product and will buy again.

HENRY from COLORADO: UNITED STATES
I was amazed with the speed and quality of sail delivered. We considered several different vendors each offering slightly different options. Whoever answers (mostly Roland) the contact questions on the website was always prompt with a well-considered response. At one stage we were considering an 8 point sail. I send in a PDF sketch of what I had in mind. They took the time to make adjustments to the diagram and suggest the best solution. I definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a sail.

ROBERT from LAS VEGAS: UNITED STATES
We live in the Las Vegas NV area and so we get pretty hot and some serious winds (35-40 MPH gusts). The sail has done exceptionally well and looks great. We were amazed at the quality of construction. We will definitely buy from them again.

GREG from PENNSYLVANIA: UNITED STATES
This is our second purchase of a Sail Shade. Our first purchase was over 10 yrs ago and unfortunately tropical storms winds brought them down. Without hesitation I reordered another. This time due to new sail shade dimensions I had questions before ordering it. I left these on their website and the next day received a call from Roland. He was professional courteous and a gentleman and made sure he answered all my questions. When he found out I was installing it myself he spent additional time giving me advice on how to make the install go smooth. We have had nothing but compliments on the look of the sail shade and look forward to enjoying it for year's to come. PS. The amount heat it blocks is fantastic. In the past at times our deck thermometer has read near 100 degrees. We now are able to use our deck all summer long. THANK YOU ROLAND!!!

YVONNE from CALIFORNIA: UNITED STATES
I have nothing but good feedback for Sail Shade World. I did a lot of research and ultimately asked a lot of questions and I believe it was the owner answered every one of them promptly and completely. Their web site gives you absolutely everything you need to design measure and install your sail shade perfectly. I am a detail person and they provided me all the detail I could ever want. :-) Then I finally ordered a custom shade and thought I was ordering it from their warehouse in the US. But that wasn't the case since it was custom it needed to be made and shipped from China. I ordered it on Friday afternoon and it was delivered to my doorstep the following Wed. Custom made sail shade from China in 5 days totally mind blowing. It is now installed and we LOVE it. I highly recommend Sail Shade World you won't be disappointed.

ANDRE from ARIZONA: UNITED STATES
The Sail Shade is a fantastic product. The quality of construction is second to none. The custom made form was easy to follow and submit and the end product fit as requested. I will definitely recommend Sail Shade to friends and family because of all of this plus it is holding up well in the Arizona sun. Thanks!

KAREN from MONTREAL: QUEBEC: CANADA
Love the product! And the delivery was fast much appreciate it! Will definitely consider SailShadeWorld again if looking for shade sails in future.

Brilliant from start to finish. The price was cheaper than I'd hoped - but the quality is easily top notch. Even the lowest grade material offered is substantial. I looked at many different sail shade companies and whilst I cannot vouch for them, I am 100% satisfied I made the right choice.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #208
We are extremely happy with the sails we have purchased. The quality and strength of these sails far surpass previous sails I have purchased. We live in a very windy climate and these sails have performed flawlessly. Previous products have torn and ripped apart forcing me to purchase replacement sails. I see these sails lasting many years. I would highly recommend these Sail Shade World sails to anyone.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #206
Ordering from your website was not a good experience. I couldn’t find a phone number to call when I was having issues with the website.
We do not publish a phone number on our web sites because we operate globally and time differences make it a problem. We do publish our phone number on the bottom of all quotation emails.
I almost left the site and didn’t order the sail. But I pressed on and it worked out. The sail arrived in a couple of weeks. Roland followed through to make sure we received the sail. It looks great.

It’s really nice when you get first hand advice from the owner of the company. I emailed Roland with some ???, and he got back to me almost immediately. Custom made Sail. Had to add to 4 links of chain in “B” corner, no biggy, great sail well built, super fast delivery. Pretty much half price to any other Sail Shade Company I could find. 5 star company in my books. Thanks. I’ll send a pic. Regards Mark. Penticton BC., Canada.

KELLY from WITTMANN, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES | 2020-07-12
CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #200
Very impressed with quality of sails, and delivery. But after measuring for triangle sails very carefully multiple times . I orderd sails with extra 3% allowance for stretching, figuring I could use a piece of chain with the turnbuckles .But sails fit with only using turbuckles, except in one corner and only using a couple of links of chain. I'm glad I orderd sails with extra 3% . Maybe not have enough room for future stretching.
RUSSELL from HAMBURG, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES | 2020-07-11
CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #199
I ordered 2 sails, one was a pre made one. This one was perfect on my deck and provides a great way to protect us from the sun while we sit in the midday sun on our back deck. The second shade I ordered was a custom size one. Unfortunately this one was not what I expected. While the shade was great condition in ended up being far too small for the space I wanted to cover. My only advice is to really take the time to measure your space and ensure you understand what the allowance does in terms of your overall shade size in the end. Overall I am satisfied with the product in service.
DAN from PETERBOROUGH, ONTARIO, CANADA | 2020-07-11
CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #198
I previously tried cheaper shade sails to check out the concept and the optimum shape and size. Once I had decided on the shape and dimensions I ordered an 8m x 4m commercial grade (340g/m2) natural. It is strong and effective and in continuous use from early spring to late summer for two years now. Subsequently I purchased a 5m x 4m for a rental house, and the tenants are delighted with the benefits for the patio. I also purchased two triangles for shade from the low evening sun. The ordering system is clear and the delivery (typically less than one week) is amazing for custom made sails. I ordered my first sail on a Wednesday evening, it was made and shipped by the Saturday, arrived in the UK on the Monday and arrived at my house on Tuesday. I am delighted with the shade sails and so are my family, friends and visitors.
WILLIAM from GERRARDS CROSS, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM | 2020-07-11
CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #197
Did quite a bit of research before we ordered our sail and I was glad I did. The sail provided by SSW is absolutely spot on, really great quality material, made to exactly the sizes I quoted and delivered very quickly. Cannot recommend highly enough. If you are still in any doubt compare the price quoted by SSW against some of their competitors and that should persuade you. Faultless from beginning to end. Many thanks J C Dawson

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #193
It came so fast I was amazed. I trusted them to adjust the measurements for stretching and it turned out perfectly. You love the blue color and the light string attachments. It is a very high quality product. A local awning shop came out to give me a quote on an awning and wanted to know where I got my shade. This shade is recognizably high quality at a glance.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #191
These sails are very high quality. They showed up 6 days earlier than promised and they measured exactly as I ordered them. We pulled 5 triangle sails over the pool about 2 months ago, which was the beginning of spring thunderstorm season here in Texas. The sails have now been up for 6 heavy storms with big wind gusts and they still look brand new. No fraying, no tearing, no runs, no hardware damage, and no discoloring. I am very impressed with the quality of these commercial grade sail shades. Thanks guys.

Excellent service -prompt replies and quick delivery. Sail seems of very high quality, fitting was easy and it does exactly the job I wanted it to do. My only suggestion for improvement would be for the 2% edge curvature option to be more clearly available on the website.I only found out about it via customer reviews.

Since you ordered we have now included this a a clear option.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #180
I would like to know if there is a spray I could purchase that would add some waterprooring to the shade. At the moment, it turns raindrops into a fine spray. We just want a little more shelter from the occasional British shower. Some research needed...
JAMES from CHESHAM, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM | 2020-06-10
CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #179
There's always a doubt in your mind when ordering products from a far off land especially when the seller makes a statement that seems unbelievable. I knew the quality of this product was good because my local pub has some fitted, but to say it would be made, shipped and received in such a short time was expecting too much. How wrong was I. I placed my order one Sunday evening and had instant confirmation. The following day I received another email giving me an expected date of delivery which was estimated at just under 2 weeks. The shade actually arrived on day 8 of my initial order and within 2 hours of delivery it was fitted. The service from this company is incredible, communication is first rate and the product is superb value when compared to some UK based companies offering the same quality. DO NOT be concerned about ordering from Sailshade World. They are an outstanding company to deal with and offer excellent value for money.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #177
I had been looking for a sail shade for my patio area and there are many on the market, however most are a standard size and I needed something made to measure. My worry was that this was going to take some time, and also also be very expensive. I chose Sailshadeworld because they could make to measure. The Sail is undoubtedly more expensive than these standard size companies, but the sizing was important to me. I was actually amazed at how quick the service was, I ordered my Sail on a Wednesday evening, received lots of communication regarding the order, progress and delivery, and received the sail on the following Monday.....amazing for a hand made product. There was an Import duty to be paid which I was initially concerned about, but this was tiny so nothing to worry about. The sail was installed by myself in approx 1 hour and looks fantastic. Overall I am delighted with the product and it's looks superb in the garden - I am VERY pleased :-) Thanks guys John

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #172
What sold me on SailShadeWorld was that my first point of contact was someone who could answer my many installation questions right away by e-mail. I put up a large rectangular custom made sail myself after combing the Internet and figuring out what I thought would be the best ways of doing it so I had a lot of questions. The answers were all to the point with no deflections so I was never left guessing. Fast solid answers are worth really worth something. The data sheets on the materials looked first rate and the finished sail is indeed first rate and was here within days of me giving final measurements. The shade sail totally changed our patio – it’s like an outdoor room now – much more usable – the paving stones stay cool all day - it's wonderful. Also there’s also something psychologically comforting about having a roof over your head – the patio feels more welcoming and cozy – I think our lizard brains may still harbor a fear of attack from the sky. Surprisingly, even though it gives such great shade you can still see clouds through it which is really nice. A lot of work but one of the best things I’ve ever done.

I did a lot of research before ordering the sail. I’m very happy with my decision to go with Sail Shade World. Customer service was excellent when I had questions. I’m extremely grateful I went with the 2 degree sides and the 3% size reduction. Mine stretched a little and now fits perfectly. It was only up for 5 days before hurricane Dorian before I took it down just in case. Took about 3 hours to put it up the first time with tensioning and 10 minutes to take down. The second time I put it up was much faster. I will order another when the time comes.

We purchased three large sails a couple months ago and are extremely happy with them !! They have worked incredibly well at our track. We haven not had any problems with them considering the high winds we experience in our area and we have been through a number of monster storms that has torn the track apart but the shades have been untouched. I would certainly recommend them because we plan on purchasing a few more !! Roland is great to work with, the price is fantastic and we had them in less than a week. Outstanding !!!

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #157
My 20 X 14 deck was virtually unusable in the summer because it is directly facing the sun. I debated putting a fixed roof up (est at $10,000) or an awning (est $4,500). I decided to investigate shade sails, SS. I spent at lot of time doing research on various SS manufactures and their products. I needed to cover my large deck. Nothing I found on Amazon or Ebay even came close. I'm a "do it yourselfer" so I needed to learn and Shade Sail World SSW, was there to educate me. The customer service was fantastic. SSW also provides a 10 year warranty. Mine was a custom SS so if it didn't come out right I was going to be out the purchase price but after doing my homework I was confident enough to place the order. 1 week later the SS arrived. The product oozes quality. I knew I made the right decision. Once I put it up, it was almost like I had added a 20 X 14 room to my house. I would buy from them again and I will recommend SSW to anyone that asks.

Quite fast service. The sails are very well made. They also have right-angle-triangular sails, which nobody else seems to make. We have had one custom-made Sail Shade World sail for a few years, and for a different part of the garden we recently bought a ready-made sail. The new option of a huge range of ready-made sails is great, although you do have to go elsewhere to buy the necessary attachments and fixings (for example karabiners and turn-buckles) which are standard inclusions with a custom-made sail.

My custom shade for my backyard patio was ordered on a Thursday noon, and I had it by noon the following Monday via international shipping. It installed easily to my previously prepared anchor points--a perfect fit--just in time for bad weather with which it had no difficulty. It looks very well made, as promised on the Sail Shade website.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #140
Overall, very satisfied with Sail Shade World. High quality product for a reasonable cost. Very speedy delivery. I made a small error in not realising the curve of the sail between 2 anchor points would remove 5 or 6 feet of shade but that was my oversight not your product. Do you ever make them without the curve?
When ordering you can ask for the curve to reduced to 2%, that makes it almost straight when tensioned

Love the shade get lots of comments on it. I will purchase from you again. I had an outdoor party to get ready for and a storm came in and ripped our shade sale that we had purchased the year before from a company that claimed to have heavy duty shades. It was a cheap shade well you get what you pay for. We were low on time and the heat of the summer was on us. We live in Phoenix AZ. So shade is everything. Thank you for saving the day you said it would only take a few days to get here and it did. We couldn't believe it. Honestly, we were so surprised to get it so fast. I would recommend your company again and again. Also we special ordered our shade, it has 5 points of attachment. We followed the directions for measuring and it came out perfect. I can also tell it will last a good long time even in this heat.

I received the sail only to find the curvature along each edge was quite large and would let too much heat through and therefore not meet our needs for shade. However after discussing this with Roland at Sail Shade World he was very keen to make sure we were 100% happy with the sail so he organised to replace the sail with a minimal curvature instead. A replacement sail was dispatched with only 2% edge curvature and that made a huge difference. We are now very happy with the final result

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #105
I purchased my sail after a lot of research. I used the instructions found on SSW's website to construction my shade structure and followed their measuring instructions. I had the same sail quoted from 4 different manufactures and the pricing ranged from $800 to over $3,000. SSW provided the best sail quality material and construction with all hardware for a great price of around $1,600. They also worked with me to get the items paid for and delivery unbelievably fast. I put the sail up in no time following the directions on their web site. I had the sail made for 3% stretch and had to use extension chains at two points when I first installed it. After about 6 weeks, I retensioned the sail and now only have on extension chain still installed. I am very happy with my purchase and the whole experience with this company and will use them again and recommend them to anyone.

LAURENCE from KALLANGUR, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA | 2017-01-08
CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #67
The concept of engaging an outside, inexperienced person to measure up the sail sizes needed (despite him having existing (partly worn-out sails to work from) proved a bad move. See below. Yet we were more than happy with the co-operation, understanding and communication levels we had from your business owner Mr Roland Sharman. He was terrific throughout. With regard to the first of the two sails sent to us was that the only way the smaller one fitted was for it to be mounted upside down ... that is with the outside edging facing upwards instead of downwards as it should be. Then when we tried to fit thelarger sail, we tried both ways - up the correct way and then upside down but it wouldn't fit either way. The dimensions were wrong as it had been measured wrongly by the man who came to measure up.
This client had approved our CAD and we did make the sail to the dimensions ordered.
After a bit of arguing
Discussion would be better than argue - we never argue with a customer
we were supplied with a new larger sail to replace the first one this has proven to fit well. It is because of this experience and the not really satisfactory result that we have down-graded our ratings of satisfaction, etc. Otherwise we are very, very happy with the quality of the sail material, the stitching, the promptness of supply, etc.

I am extremely happy with my shade sail. The website provided a very user friendly way to order my custom sized shade sail. It walked me through each step and helped me order the correct mounting hardware. The sail is made of very durable fabric and is stitched well. I would definitely refer your company for anyone wanting a shade sail. The only glitch was the company who delivered the shade sail sent me a bill for shipping several weeks after its arrival. I just threw it away since shipping was free. I never heard from them again so I figure they realized it was their error. This would not stop me from ordering from sail shade world again.

Incredible delivery speed. The replacement sail turned up Thursday and I fitted it last evening no problems. So that is basically 4 working days – given I alerted you to the problem on a Saturday morning and had a new sail in Perth sometime Thursday on my doorstep. Per instructions I am progressively tensioning the sails as they seem to give a bit as the creases pull out. FYI At the same time as doing this I have been getting an outdoor kitchen designed – despite everything being local so far with no changes to the initial design and just a simple measure up required it has taken them 4 weeks to get to final design stage. The speed of their work could not be a more stark contrast to you guys. It is very easy to see why local businesses need to change their way of going about things – the old way simply doesn’t compete any longer

We, obviously, love sail shades because we're the proud owners of 3 of them! Last spring our neighbor cut down an oak tree that had given us a beautiful screen between our homes so we purchased a large rectangular sail shade to suspend between another tree & our fence to restore some much needed privacy. The other two triangular sail shades hang over our deck not only providing us with shade but giving that area a cool vibe. Sail Shade World is the place to go if you need to make a purchase of this kind!

The sail fits perfectly and was well constructed. I am happy with the he product and it more than adequately solves the problem of shading on my irregular shaped deck.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #33
Only ever having bought a shade sail pre made from an online Melbourne based Auction site and to replace it less than two years later with a Sail Shade World unit once the old one tore itself apart. The new unit is constructed with far greater attention to quality, design and the intended forces to be expected in use. Price was very reasonable and the customer service excellent, fast return of calls and technical queries answered with genuine knowledge of the product.

Extremely happy with the service and product. Delivery was within one week and the fit is perfect, would definitely recommend Sail Shade World to friends.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #31
I'm very pleased with the shade sails. I initially ordered two then ordered another. They all fit perfectly using the measuring instructions on the website, and so far seem durable, although it's only been a few months. They are very well made and the stitching is done neatly. I was pleased with the colour options too. My ony complaint is I live in Hong Kong and my parcel was delivered by SF Express; I thought I had paid for full shipping but was charged a little extra upon delivery.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #29
The operators at Shade Sail World were great. I accidentally paid twice for my sail and they immediately called and advised that they had returned the money. The shipment was super fast and the quality of the sail was excellent. I choose a large river gum green sail and it arrived exactly to order. It has made my front yard much more pleasant to be in. I would happily recommend them.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #26
I thought I was buying a waterproof sail but water comes through it when it rains even though it has a substantial gradient and I am not sure whether there is a side of the sail that should go up.
We do NOT offer Waterproof shade sails on our websites. Shade cloth is a permeable fabric so will allow water to come through. We had several email exchanges prior to your purchase and at no point was your assumption of waterproof mentioned.

CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #25
I spent some time researching shade sails and found that Sail Shade World provided quality sails for a reasonable price. The online quote app provides an easy process to order custom made sails from a great selection of colours. The sails were delivered promptly and fit to the mounting points perfectly. I have purchased a couple of sails through Sail Shade World, they delivered a high quality product and I intend to purchase more sails from them in the near future. I can recommend Sail Shade World for quality custom sails.

MARTIN from KIRWAN, AUSTRALIA |
CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #14
Although very happy with the sail itself, it had been damaged in (I assume)transit resulting in two slashes in the sail about 75mm and 25mm long. I tried to contact Sail Shade regarding my options but got no response and I was left with no option but to repair the damage myself as best as I could. So despite the two repairs, I am more than happy with the product, I'm just very disappointed with the lack of after sales effort.
We received an email from this customer on April 20th and replied asking for pictures of the damage. This is usually caused by Customs when inspecting the package, although it has a no cutter warning. Once this is verified we report it to DHL who are responsible and the shade sail is replaced. We had no response by email or telephone from this customer so no further action could have been taken. We do take customer service very seriously and are disappointed with this comment. We could have removed it but in the interests of our integrity it has been left.

CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #10
Very happy with the service, the product (assuming it lasts a reasonable time) and the delivery. The shapes of my sails were complicated, in fact, I made a mistake with the dimensions. I was happy to wear the cost of the mistake, but Roland at SSW generously offered to discount the replacement. The sails now fit perfectly and look good.

WARREN from PENRITH , AUSTRALIA |
CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #5
The Shade Sail order fits beautifully. You may remember the order I placed with you for the sail to have only half of the normal 320mm allowance for turnbuckles. You also suggested minimal curvature, which I had not thought of, and was the right decision. The end result has turned out to look great and I am extremely happy with the custom sail requested. You may remember the previous sail purchased a couple of weeks earlier with standard allowance for turnbuckles which I am also happy with. We have completed the project which faces the west can get extremely hot in the afternoon. The end result is about a 30% reduction in heat from afternoon sun and a cooler alfresco area to enjoy. Thanks again for your help.
STEPHEN from NABIAC, AUSTRALIA |
CUSTOM SHADE SAIL REVIEW #4
It took only 3 hours to erect the 3 sails. We tried a come-a-long with out success, but discovered that a motorcycle ratchet strap worked perfectly to stretch the sail D rings to the Mahogany posts that we used. The fit was exact, so installation was a breeze. I would suggest that the corners be marked, A,B , C etc to eliminate the need to measure the sail to determine the correct orientation. (maybe a note to the buyer, to keep a sketch showing the A, B, C etc anchor points) These are top quality sails, with almost instant sales support and super fast delivery ( 4 days to Colorado, from time of order)
RICHARD from MULEGE, MEXICO |
CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS #3
I have bought 2 shade sails from sailshadeworld.com.au, one in Jan 2012 and the other recently in Jan 2016. Both odd shapes (3 sided and 4 sided) with one rope track edge. Ordered via the website. Very good communication from the CEO with the first one via phone and email as I was unsure of something in the order. Good prices. The first one arrived in 4 days while the second a little over a week. The first one is wearing very well. Both were made precisely as I specified to a high standard. I would definitely use Sail Shade World again and strongly recommend them. Bill, Carlton North, Victoria, Australia

TRIANGLE SHADE SAILS

Triangular shade sails provide less shade cover than sail with multiple mounting points but, if you do not mind gaps, can be very good for visual effect, especially if the colours are mixed.

Triangle shade sail which are very long in relation to the width do not tension as well on the longest point as shade sails where the triangle sides are more even.

RIGHT ANGLE SHADE SAILS


We sell right angle triangle shade sails through our website for fixed sizes.

If the place you are mounting the sail is a perfect right angle then they work well, but if it is not a true 90 degrees the right angle shade sail will not fit properly and a custom made shade sail would be a better solution.

SQUARE SHADE SAILS

Over 40% of our production is square shade sails, more specifically shade sails with 4 sides, all variants which Sail Shade World can make as custom made shade sails.

If your needs are not for custom made shade sails and you have a defined space we have an extensive range of fixed size square shade sails, also rectangle shade sails.

CUSTOM SHADE SAILS

Sail Shade World (SSW) is among the largest manufacturers of

Custom Shade Sails

We, at Sail Shade World, understand that there is only one sort of customer for us. The customer who is very happy with the custom shade sail, cannot fault the quality and is delighted by the attention that we have paid to their needs and the speed of delivery.

We can make a sail for your backyard, your hotel or restaurant, for your deck or to shade (and protect) your kids in the swimming pool, or when they are at school. You design it we will create it!

We are very proud of our 'global footprint'. You will see Sail Shade World shade sails in 50 countries in locations as diverse as a penthouse apartment in Dakar, a shade sail used to protect a pump from the blazing sun in an Australian mine, on the terraces of the Royal Malta Yacht Club and between the palms on the beach of Nosy Be in Madagascar.

Large, and often, complex shade sails are not a problem for us and we do not have to be onsite to help you.

WATERPROOF SHADE SAILS

WATERPROOF SHADE SAILS NEGATIVES:

  • Because waterproof shade sails are opaque the heat build up is quite considerable
  • Water ponds on the sail and will spontaneously dump a few gallons on whoever is near the sail
  • Typically shade sails high so the rain protection is only from vertical rain, bit like an umbrella will keep your head dry but not much else.

    Our customers' experience with outdoor dining spaces is that usually in colder climates heavy rain is associated with a temperature drop and wind that in itself makes staying outside very unpleasant.

    WHAT IS SHOWERPROOF?



    We do not supply waterproof fabric. All our commercial grade are showerproof.  As shown in the pictures on this page.

    All the pictures indicate dry ground after a light rain shower. Even in heavy rain the water does not come directly through the shade cloth but will find it's way to the lowest point and run off, because shade cloth is permeable there will be some drips as shown in the is picture.

    MEASURING SHADE SAILS

    The first thing to understand is the shapes we use are only to show the points where the lengths are measured and are not meant to show the exact shape of shade sails we manufacture.

    Note the first picture showing how a quite unusual shape can be achieved with our quoting system.

    The diagonal lengths dictate the shape and are absolutely essential in producing the shade sails accurately.

    As a simple example the diagrams here shows three shapes all of which have four sides, each 600 in length, but varied diagonal lengths of 846.17, 993.77 and 1155.89 which significantly alter the final shape and dictates how we make the shade sail.





    EXTRA MOUNTING POINTS:

    You might have a four sided shade sail but want an extra mounting point on one side.

    If that were the case you would choose five sided and divide the side where you will have the extra mounting point as shown in the example of a five sided sail with one continuous edge (lower)versus a true five sided shape.

    Likewise if you had a four sided shade sail and wanted six mounting points you would choose the six sided formula and follow a similar method.

    You will also see here how the diagonals define the final shape





    WE DO NOT MAKE SHADE SAILS WITH STRAIGHT EDGES!

    It is important to understand that all our shade sails have parabolic curved edges.

    Without a curve it would not be possible to obtain good tension on the shade sail.

    The curve is concave (inward) and at the midpoint would be about 5% of the length of the side.

    As the shade sail is tensioned this reduces to between 2% and 4% - depending on the tension.





    THE MEASUREMENTS WE NEED: Take your measurements from mounting point to mounting point as shown in the graphic.

    These are the ACTUAL measurements.

    When you get the Quotation we will ask you if you want us to make the shade sail to be “actual” or for us to make “allowance”

    We also give you the option for us to include the fittings.





    HOW WE CREATE THE ALLOWANCE IN A SHADE SAIL:

    When we receive an order it is sent to our pre-production department where they produce a CAD (Computer Aided Drawing) of the shade sail. This CAD provides the dimensions for the factory to work with.

    If you have specified “ALLOWANCE” we take away 32cm in the direction of tension. Below is an actual CAD used for an order

    INSTALLING SHADE SAILS

    There are 5 steps in creating a custom made shade sail structure:
       1. Planning your structure
       2. Installing your fixing points (posts/brackets etc.)
       3. Measuring your area
       4. Ordering your shade sail using our online ordering system
       5. Installing your shade sail
    Follow these steps carefully and you will have a wonderful shade environment.

    Step 1 – Planning Your Shade Sail Structure
    There are many, very important considerations when planning your structure, and in fact this is the single most important aspect of the whole process. Proper planning will ensure that your sail structure performs in the way it was intended.
    You will already have an area in mind that you wish to cover with a shade sail. It may be a paved area, a courtyard, a deck, a pool; regardless, the area is known but the “how to” remains in doubt. There may be opportunities for creating attachment points for your sail on areas of existing structures, or you may need to install steel or aluminium posts to create a totally free standing structure. To follow are many points you must consider during the planning phase:

    1. Movement of the Sun The sun rises daily in the east and sets to the west. As the seasons progress, it also moves from low in the sky during the cooler months to high in the sky during summer. Your structure should be planned to provide maximum shade protection during the height of summer, or summer solstice, as this is when it will be needed most.

    2. Sail Design & Architectural Twist Sails work best when they are designed to have a “twist”, or architectural hypar effect. This is where the fixing points, being steel posts or brackets, are created at different heights, such that the sail is then twisted in order to fit. A flat sail is harder to tension correctly, and in times of heavy downpour can catch and hold water for long periods of time, thus putting excess load pressure on the fixing points. Further, from an aesthetic perspective, they look boring. We recommend you install your fixing points with diagonally opposite high and low points, to avoid these problems and create a visual such as the following:

    3. Sail Size You may have noted in the pictures above that the sail is actually smaller than the area between the columns. In order to fully tension the shade sail, we require a space between the sail and fixing points for rigging tensioners, and also catenary curves in the sides of the sail. For larger sails, these tension gaps and catenary curves need to be quite large, to ensure maximum tension and thus maximum longevity of the sail. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you install your fixing points reasonably further apart from each other than the actual shaded area you desire. As a general rule, your sail will begin about 300mm (12”) away from the fixing point, although this varies depending on the size of your sail.

    4. Fixing to Existing Structures Caution is imperative when considering fixing to existing structures, such as your house. In instances of poor weather and strong winds, the loads placed on fixings by the sail are enormous, and should not be underestimated. To ensure that your existing structure is adequate to handle such loads, you may need to consult a local engineer or qualified builder. For the best safety practises, you should remove your sail when high wind conditions are forecast.

    5. Steel vs. Timber We recommend you use steel or aluminium posts, and not timber posts, for your sail structure. Steel is stronger, will not overly deflect (i.e. bend from the ground up), and will not rot. Rust factors can be compensated by using galvanised steel or aluminium. Note that steel is inherently stronger than aluminium, and thus is typically cheaper to obtain, however this does vary from country to country. That said, if you are prepared to remove your sail periodically, or to have it up only temporarily on necessary occasions, then many of our customers have successfully used timber posts.



    6. Post Footings Required footing sizes vary dependant on the size of the structure and the height of the post out of the ground. An old conservative engineering principal is “1 third in, 2 thirds out”, which means posts out of the ground by 2400mm (8’) need to be at least 1200mm (4’) into the ground. This is typically considered conservative, however we recommend you strongly consider this principal, as correcting a post that has been leant over in high winds due to an undersized footing is a difficult, sometimes impossible, job. Even a small movement of your footing will also compromise the ability to tension the sail, thus reducing the likelihood of maximum longevity. If you are digging through land fill or raised garden beds, these depths should not be included in the overall depth of the footing. An ideal situation follows:


    As a general rule, hole diameters should be around 350mm (1’2”), however increasing as column sizes increase. Depth, however, is the most important factor.

    7. Underground Services. Ensure your area is clear of underground services, such as sewage and water plumbing, or electrical cabling, prior to digging holes for your footings. Damages to services can be dangerous, and expensive to correct. Consider a services search prior to digging if you do not have plans of underground services available.

    8. Local Authorities. You should also check with your local authorities as to relevant building regulations that may be a factor in your development of a shade sail structure.
    Once you have properly planned your shade sail structure, it is time to move on to the first of the installation phases – installing your fixing points.

    Step 2 - Installing Your Fixing Points. Once you have resolved the issues raised in step 1, it is time to install your fixing points. As previously stated, never underestimate the importance of being conservative with your footing dimensions – a well installed shade sail will last many years, and become a very cost effective means of shading any area. Also, take extreme care in fixing to existing structures, as mentioned in Step 1 above. The more conservative you are in these earlier phases, the longer the life of the sail structure you build.

    Step 3 – Measuring Your Area You may have noted from our “Shade Sail Quotes” feature on our website

    that in order to manufacture a quality shade sail, we require quite comprehensive measurements from our customers. In “triangulating” the sail construction, we automatically take into account the variances in fixing heights and necessary angles to best create your product. This includes diagonal measurements as shown on our guides. It would not be possible to properly create your shade sail without these measurements, and we strongly advise that you spend the necessary time to obtain these measurements thoroughly and correctly.
    Use our templates (at the end of this guide) that corresponds to our 3 sided, 4 sided, 5 sided, 6 sided, 7 sided or 8 sided sail diagrams. Take the relevant measurements, from fixing lug to fixing lug, and write them down. Do not forget to take the diagonals as we require them. Once you have your measures, you simply need to visit the website and follow the processes as outlined below.

    Step 4 – Ordering Your Shade Sail We have developed the world leading system for you to obtain instant online quotations and order your shade sail. No waiting for sales representatives to contact you with a price, our system will generate a quotation for you instantly, including worldwide delivery to your door.
    In our “Shade Sail Quotes” section, simply enter your measurements, your required fabric colour, and your selection of stainless steel fittings or none, and you will have a custom made shade sail quotation in seconds.
    A copy of the quotation will even be instantly emailed to your inbox. This is a feature offered to you exclusively by Shade Sail World.
    Proceeding with your order is simple. Visit our “Special Orders” page, enter your quotation number and details as requested, follow the online prompts that take you through our payment gateway, and you will soon be relaxing comfortably under your magnificent shade sail structure.

    Step 5 – Installing Your Shade Sail Once your sail is fabricated to our highest quality standards and sent to you, the installation process is eminent. This process is also extremely important in ensuring maximum longevity of your product.

    We recommend you follow these steps:
       1. Lay out and attach your components If you ordered fittings (not available of the shade-sails.com site) Each sail point will have a combination of shackles and turnbuckles. Unwind the turnbuckles to full extension, and use the shackles to connect the turnbuckle to the sail corner points.
       2. Attach your sail Fix your turnbuckle (which is already attached to your sail) to the relevant fixing lug on your fixing points. At this stage, leave the turnbuckles fully unwound, until all points have been attached. Move from point to point until all points of the sail are fixed as required. NOTE: In the manufacturing process, we have allowed for the fact that the fabric may stretch. This means that considerable force will be needed to wrench up the last points to get them close to the fixing points. We guarantee that this is the best way to manufacture your product, even when you think your sail may have been constructed too small. We recommend you consider creating a quasi-pulley effect to pull the last points up. This is done by tying rope onto your sail corner point, and looping it back and forth to the relevant fixing point.

    You may have access to purpose built pulley systems such as block and tackle, and if so we recommend you use them. Continue this process until all fixing points are in place. Your turnbuckles should still be fully unwound.

    SHADE SAIL DELIVERY

    We have used DHL for our logistic requirements since we started in 2006

    All our shade sails are shipped air express and normally take 3-5 days from the time they leave the factory until they are delivered to your door. With a one to two day production cycle in our factory this means delivery is normally within 7 days from date of ordering.

    Exceptions are remote locations, such as outback Australia, remote regions of North and South America and countries with a poor infrastructure where DHL has to pass the package to sub-contractors. In these, rare instances, delivery can take another 7 - 10 days.
