WHAT IS SHADE SAIL FABRIC?
Shade Sail Fabric is HDPE (high density polyethylene). This is especially manufactured with tensioned fabric Shade Sail Structures in mind.
The knit is made using monofilament and tape filler. The Shade Sail fabric is treated with UV stabilisers to give it long life in direct sunlight. We only use fabric with a shade rating of 90% and above. Depending on colour, the rating may be as high as 99%.
Does the colour make a difference?
Light Coloured Shade Sails reflect the heat and are cooler underneath, making them a good choice for areas where heat penetration is important, such as decks and entertainment areas. Dark coloured Shade Sails will show the dirt less and can be more fashionable.
