The Benefits of Shade Sails & Giant Umbrellas

Two of the most common shading solutions for residents across Brisbane and the entire state of Queesland are shade sails and giant umbrellas. There are a number of reasons for this, namely that they are both excellent shade providers and make a perfect fit for virtually any property. However, there are some slight differences between the two. If you have been deciding between a shade sail and a giant umbrella for your property then you are in luck! In this article we will be sharing with you some of the best benefits of each to help make your decision a little easier.


Shade Sails

There’s no doubt shade sails seem to be popping up everywhere lately. With everyone getting ready for summer, many Brisbane residents are turning to installing a shade sail to provide adequate shading coverage for their outdoor spaces. 


Why are shade sails so popular? Here are a few reasons:


  • They can shade large outdoor spaces
  • Shade sails can be customised for unusual spaces
  • They feature durable construction
  • Shade sails provide excellent protection against harmful UV rays
  • Our shade sails are available in a variety of colours


As you can see, shade sails are a fantastic choice when looking for a shading solution for our outdoor space. There are only a few detractions when it comes to shade sails. They are often more labour intensive when installing and cannot be repositioned like a giant umbrella can.

Giant Umbrellas

Giant umbrellas are another popular shading option for residents and businesses across Queensland. Here a few reasons why so many people are choosing giant umbrellas for their shading solution:


  • They feature an iconic style that adds a touch of class to any space
  • Giant umbrellas can be repositioned for the perfect shading angle
  • Our giant umbrellas are available in a range of colours
  • Often feature a simpler installation than shade sails
  • Giant umbrellas provide incredible sun and UV ray protection

Giant umbrellas really are an excellent choice for shading, however like shade sails there are a few limitations to be aware of. The primary ones are that they do not provide as large a space of shade as shade sails do. Although they are incredibly weather resistant, they are not as durable in the face of incredibly high winds as shade sails are.
