Sunbrella Shade Sails feature Sunbrella breathable fabric to keep you cooler and more comfortable in hot weather. These sails have a limited 10 year fabric warranty and provide you with a UV protection factor of up to 98%. Shade sails can be mounted to a variety of surfaces and are easy to install. Use a shade sail to create a shaded area anywhere around your home or office. This state of the art material is unaffected by moisture and natural temperature extremes. Sunbrella's solution dyed acrylic fabric is fade and water resistant. The near waterproof fabric also resists stains, mildew, and rot. The perimeter of each sail contains seatbelt type webbing for increased strength and durability and is designed with a gentle cantenary curve inwards towards the center of the sail to control the fabric tension. Each corner has a welded solid marine grade stainless steel attachment ring to aid in attaching to a structurally sound fixing point. Shade sails, when installed properly, do not sag or flap in the wind.

Sunbrella Shade Sails are available in several shapes that include squares, rectangles, equilateral triangles, and right angle triangles. They can be purchased in your choice of eight great colors. Each sail comes with instructions for installation. Sunbrella Shade Sails have to be installed with at least a 20 degree slope to allow water to run off the sail rather than pooling on top. Due to the limited available Sunbrella fabric widths, there will be seams approximately every 40-57 inches.

Determining the amount of Slope/Angle for your Sunbrella Shade Sail

Sunbrella fabric is water resistant, and Shade Sails made from this fabric have to be installed at a 20 degree slope to allow water to run off and not pool on top. Below is a simple equation and example to determine the amount of vertical drop from one attachment point of the sail to the opposite attachment point of the sail to allow water run off. A 20 degree slope can also be seen as a 35% difference between the higher attachment point and low attachment points.

If you have a shade sail that is a 15 foot square the amount of angle/slope will be 5 feet 5 inches. You can determine this slope amount by using the equation: Sail Size x .36 = Amount of Slope

15 Feet x .36 = 5.25 Feet which is about 5 Feet 3 Inches.

Therefore it is best to attach two points of your sail 5 Feet 3 Inches lower than the two higher points to allow water run off.
