Free Standing Shade Sail

Product Code:FSS

By popular demand we offer a unique solution to providing shade and rain shelter to your garden, patio, playground, dining area or anywhere! Here is a shade sail which comes with its own supporting structures and in a range of sizes allowing it to be installed just about anywhere. The sail shape is a classic “hypar” or “saddle” shape which when tensioned forms a very stable (and attractive) fabric shape which resists vertical movement in wind and allows efficient run-off of rain water (when rainproof fabric is used).
We ship to you in your choice of size and colour. Installation is easy and we happily give any advice you may need to get your shade sail project underway and completed. No special tools are required, and we provide full instructions.
Choose from a range of materials for the support columns, and a large range of fabric types (and colours) specifically selected to make long-lasting and attractive shade sails. Or ask us how you can create truly custom designs which will fit perfectly into your intended installation site. Refer Design Service.
