A shade sail using a 230 gsm fabric will be a more densely knitted fabric than a 160 gsm fabric. The denser the fabric, the higher the UV protection. The sail is easily installed and taken down, and the stitched corners feature steel D-ring fittings which attach to the mounting points.

Sails – imaginatively designed fabric shade canopies for sun protection . When sun protection is needed, our innovative ‘Sail’ shade structures are a clever way to cover those odd-shaped areas where possible post locations are limited or where a unique aesthetic appearance is desired.
The inward curves along the sides of each shade fabric panel are engineered to help spread and distribute the tension placed at each connection point evenly over the shade sails. The result is a shade sail capable of providing functional shade in an iconic architectural form. The sailcloth is supplied in long strips or on a roll. The strips are cut to the correct length with the help of a drawing of the sail and the required draft is applied. The best way is to draw the outside of the sail on the floor or on the table and then place the roll or strips on top in order to mark them off. The lifespan of a sail is also largely dependent on climate and weather. Being in sunny Queensland, we recommend choosing a high quality fabric with high UV protection. Generally, if installed properly and well maintained, you can expect your sails to last at least 10-12 years.
