Installation considerations:

Shade sails and are suitable for both residential and commercial areas. It’s now quite popular to use them over your patio, outdoor entertainment area, swimming pool and carport. Businesses are also using them on childcare centres, schools, playgrounds, cafes and more.

  • Regardless of where you’re installing it, there are a few factors you should consider. Not only should you be considering the quality of your shade sail, the quality of installation is just as important.
  • Building approval – always check with local councils for any relevant regulations
  • Location – the direction of the sun is the most important factor
  • Consider any dangers or obstacles such as water pipes, electrical cables, barbecues etc.
  • Think about where the prevailing wind comes from
  • Alternating high and low points on your shade sail will keep it tight and make it look better
  • Think about overlapping sails to get full shade coverage

Installation including posts, footings, fixings and fasteners are not an area you want to scrimp on! It may result in a loose or saggy shade sail. Or even worse, it may come loose or break away. It is definitely worth spending a little more time and money to ensure it’s installed correctly the first time around.
