Instructions for Installing Your Shade Sail

Welcome to the instructions page of Shade Matters! We're here to guide you through the process of installing your new shade sail.

Our shade sails are designed with user-friendly installation in mind. Each sail comes with corner attachment points that make the setup easier. However, please note that other necessary hardware is not included with the sail. You can find a wide range of hardware kits and specialist fixtures such as turnbuckles and eye plates available for purchase separately on our Fittings page.

Step-by-Step Guide

We've put together a  quick and simple step-by-step guide to help you install your shade sail. This guide covers everything from planning your space, securing the corners of the sail, creating tension to prevent sagging, and adjusting the sail for optimal shade coverage and rain runoff.

Before getting started, we recommend reading through the entire guide to familiarise yourself with the process. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us at or call (02) 9771 5288.
