So, you’re thinking about investing in a good shade sail, but how do you know what to look out for?
A good shade sail will:
- Be made from premium shade cloth: good shade sails are made from premium cloth that offers strength and protection against the sun and its UV rays.
- Be resistant and durable: your shade sail needs to be resistant to water, fire and general wear and tear.
- Be engineered for the elements: as structures that stay up for months at a time, choose a shade sail engineered to withstand storms, bad weather and the intense Perth sun.
- Come with a warranty: make sure you choose a shade sail backed by with manufacturer’s warranty to protect your investment and maximise the lifespan of your product.
Bad sails look and sound terrible
Saggy, droopy shade sails that flap around in the wind and gather leaves in the centre of them during autumn are not good shade sails. The more stress and movement the shade experiences, the faster it will fatigue. If you look around the suburbs, you’ll notice all the badly installed shade sails and see how terrible they look. A shade sail should complement your home, not cause an ugly eye sore.
Noise can also become a factor as the wind moves the shade up and down. It can cause the sail to produce a snap or cracking sound. The more movement in the sail, the more the noise you will hear.
Bad sails are short lived
A poor-quality shade sail in Perth will not only deteriorate more quickly but also runs the risk of snapping or tearing in high winds, possibly causing injury to you or your home. You need a shade sail that is effective and aesthetically pleasing, one that will last for years to come.
