Materials and Construction
Shade sails are made from a high-strength cloth known as a high-density polyethylene knit. Sewn into all edges of the sail is reinforcement webbing which is stitched 3 times for added strength. At each corner, PVC patches are added for strength.
The shade sail cloth is anchored to the structure, posts or your building using stainless steel D shackle-and-turn buckles. All shade sail fittings are are 316 marine grade stainless steel; 316 is top-grade yachting stainless that doesn't rust.
The combination of high quality fabric, sturdy construction, and high quality steel ensure that Shade2measure's shade sails are strong and durable to withstand Australia's harsh climate.
Ultraviolet (UV) Protection
The shade cloth provides an ultraviolet (UV) sunlight protection factor between 86% to 96% depending on your chosen colour. Not only will the shade cloth protect you and your family from the harsh UV light, it will last for years in the full strength direct sun.
