Patio Shade Sails
Patio shade sails are great for protecting outside spaces from the elements. Come rain or shine, you'll be covered by their overhead canopy and can enjoy your patio whatever the weather.
When compared to other types of garden structure, patio shade sails are a cost-effective alternative and can save precious outside floor space that's needed to erect larger structures like gazebos. They're relatively simple to install and have the potential to transform how you use your outdoor space.
A Range of Options to Suit Your Needs
You can find shade sails of all shapes and sizes. So whether you'd like to cover a specific area of your patio, such as a deck or dining area, or the whole space, you'll find a range of options. Rectangles, triangles and squares are the most common shapes with 3x3m, 4x4m and 5x5m being some of the most popular square sizes.
Shade sails are cool, airy and stylish additions to your patio and are available in a wide range of colours. If you prefer contemporary or minimalist décor, you can opt for classic black, white or cream. Alternatively, you can choose eye-catching Mediterranean colours in vibrant turquoise, red or olive green.
Depending on the fabric you choose, patio shade sails can come with many features. Materials such as Sunbrella and Comtex are heat resistant and protect against harmful UV rays. If you'd like to keep your skin out of the sun as much as possible, opt for shade sails that offer between 90 and 100% UV protection.
The majority of shade sails will be waterproof and include water repellent properties to ensure you'll always remain dry. Others may have a mildew-resistant coating that will prevent the growth of mould. You'll also find several heavy duty options that are built to withstand strong winds and harsh weather conditions.
