An introduction to sunshade sails

Mar. 24, 2022

Shade sails are an affordable way to decorate your porch, patio or yard from the sun so you can enjoy the summer weather without burning out. Installing a shade sail is very simple, you can use any sturdy anchor to attach the corners of the sail to where you want.

Shadow sails come in rectangular, square and triangular shapes and come in a variety of sizes and colors. Also, the amount of UV light they are able to block can vary. One large shade sail might be enough to cover your porch or patio, but multiple smaller sails will work just as well and look stunning. Our top pick is the Shade and Beyond Shade Shade Triangle made of durable high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that blocks 98% of UV rays. To learn more about the types of shade sails available and their capabilities, read on.

Considerations when choosing a shade sail:

When shopping for shade sails, you should carefully measure the area you want to cover and look for sails that are sized and shaped enough to provide shade for the area. While all shapes provide shadows well, the triangle has only three fixed points, making it easier to set up, but also stable. Awnings vary in size, from being large enough to cover just a few chairs to covering an entire patio.

The material of the sail determines its ability to block UV rays and water. HDPE is an easily stretchable and breathable fabric that allows for a slight breeze. At the same time, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) will also block the wind and rain.

Be aware that the shade sail is capable of blocking a higher percentage of UV rays, especially if you don't want to wear sunscreen under the shade sail - this may defeat the purpose.

Shade sails vary in color, washability and installation methods.

Many manufacturers offer a variety of shaded sail colors, so you can easily find one that suits your liking.

You may need to wash your shade sail at least once a year, and not all shade sails are machine washable.

While installing a shade sail is simple, you may not have all the equipment you need right away. Many sails include hardware and ropes for mounting, but some do not. Keep this in mind when weighing the cost of different sails.
