Installations know how’s
When very lucky we can mount a shade sail between existing walls. But in most projects we need to add a pole to support the sails. A shade sail supported by posts is essentially a small construction project. We need to dig holes, posts have to be sourced and concreted in. Several site visits are needed to secure accurate measurements throughout the project..
When properly tensioned, shade sail fabric will not wrinkle, sag, or flap in the wind. We aim sails to be tensioned between 300& 450kg, depending on size and location. Accordingly anchor points require careful selection and installation. Sails that are not properly tensioned end up holding water, hanging limp and becoming unstable in heavy winds. Sails work best when they are under enough tension to give curvature, are not on a level plane and are ‘twisted’ for stability.
