  1. What Shape Shade Sail Do You Require?

Triangles will cover less areas than squares, but are more flexible and can fit into smaller areas better.

  1. Location

Decide where you are going to put the sails and the size of the sail that you require. Do you want to cover an entire area or only part of the area? Think about the angle of the sun at all times of the year before organising shade sail installations Brisbane regions, and other areas of Australia.

Opt for a style of shade sails with fall so that rainwater doesn’t pool in the middle of the sail.

We only edge the shade sail fabric with 316 grade stainless steel cable, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm & 6mm. This guarantees that the shade sail has a chassis. The cable moves independently through the hem allowing the fabric to be tensioned drum tight. This is where the shade sail gains its ability to ride the storms.
