We use Polytex fabric on almost all sails we fabricate. If you have a specific request for another fabric, let us know. Click on the PDF icon below to see all Polytex fabric colors.
While we do fabricate shade sails with cables in the perimeter, we use webbing unless cables are specifically requested. Shade sails with cable are not appropriate for most projects as they are more difficult to install and, although it may seem like they would be, are not generally stronger than sails with webbing.
We use only professional grade materials when fabricating shade sails. For example, using ASTM-E-84(A) and NFPA-701-2010 fire standard compliant fabrics, UV resistant thread, and 316 grade stainless steel corner rings. This is true even with our pre-made standard size shade sails.
The perimeter of each shade sail is designed with a gentle curve to control the tension of the sail. This detail ensures that when tension is placed on the shade sail corners the fabric remains taut, creating an aesthetically pleasing feature that eliminates any sagging or flapping in the wind.
Please note: Because of computer monitor settings, actual colors may vary.

Each corner of the shade sail is reinforced with additional layers of webbing to distribute tension. All stitching is sewn using outdoor awning thread resistant to the sun and UV rays. Lock stitching is used throughout the shade sail.

Don't Settle for this
Narrow corners and corners with unwrapped webbing (see the white webbing attaching the ring to the sail) are sure signs of a low quality shade sail.
