Can Shade Sails Handle Wind?

This is a very common question we get asked about our shade sails. At Brisbane Shade & Sails, our shade sails are specifically designed and installed to absorb the high, constant wind loads of southeast Queensland. When installing our shade sails we make sure to use engineer approved methods to securely attach the shade sail to your existing structure. This allows you to sit back and enjoy your shade without worrying about damage from high winds. Click here to find out more about how our shade sails can handle high wind loads.


Do Shade Sails Protect From UV Rays?

Finding a shading solution that effectively protects you from harmful UV rays from the sun is important. Fortunately, our shade sails are manufactured with fabrics that are endorsed by the Cancer Council of Australia. Why? They offer up to 98% UV protection depending on the colour you choose! That is the kind of UV protection you need for you and your family in your outdoor space. 


Should Shade Sails Be Tight Or Loose? 

We get a lot of questions regarding what the tension of the shade sail fabric should be for the best results. Good quality shade fabric will have minimum stretch which is required to ensure a tight fit and reduce sail sag. The best results will be achieved with a highly tensioned sail, with plenty of height differentials that tend to take on a three dimensional appearance.

What Makes Our Shade Sails The Best?

This answer is simple. No one installs better shade sails in southeast Queensland than Brisbane Shade & Sails. We only work with local manufacturers using the highest quality materials to construct our shade sails. Plus, our shade sails can be manufactured and installed in virtually any shape or size, providing that there are sufficient connection points for the installation.
