What makes our Shade Sail Systems different?


We have the best warranty in the business along with the strongest shades available. Read below to learn more about what makes us different, our warranty information, and how to keep your shades looking their best.

How Our Poles are Installed

Poles are the foundation to a strong shade system. Our shade system is designed to handle 85mph winds. If stronger is desired our engineer can design your shade system to handle stronger wind loads.

The poles CANNOT move at all to keep the shades tight. Keeping them tight not only makes them look great, it is essential to extend the life of the shades and keeping them secure during the storm.

The size of the poles is designed for your Shade System.

Our Pole Footers are done correctly. Each footer is different for each shade system. For example, if you are using a 6" pole, your hole will be 18" to 24" in diameter and 4' to 5' deep with rebar used to connect the pole with the pre-mixed concrete. We use a mixer to pre-mix your concrete. Premixed concrete should always be used.


How Our Shades are Made

We are an authorized Dealer for Shazeebo Shade Sails. There is more to a Shade Sail than just fabric. Shazeebo takes the extra steps to ensure our products will last. All our corners on our custom shades are double reinforced with seat belt webbing, stainless steel rings, and extra stitches. We also only use lifetime Gore Tenara thread which is the best thread you can get on the market.


The Fabric

Our Shade Sail fabric is made by Gail Pacific Commercial Products the World Leader in Shade Sail Fabric. We use knitted, high-density polyethylene blend commercial 95 340, and FR (fire retardant), commercial DualShade 350 and 350 FR Commercial Heavy 430 and Heavy 430FR for larger shades.

We also only use lifetime Gore Tenara thread with is the best thread you can get on the market.

Your shade system will make the summer heat about 20 degrees cooler. But that is only part of the advantage of our Shade Sails. The UVA protection is between 93% and 95.8%. Keeping you cool as well as protecting your skin from harmful UV rays.


Hardware

All our hardware and cable is Stainless Steel.

Our exclusive safe and secure turnbuckles have a cotter pin in the bolt that prevents it from spinning out. This keeps the shades tight as well safe from failing.

We also can add a safety wire to high wind areas and areas that safety is a concern. This wire is for added double protection. The wire is hard connected through the turnbuckle and directly to shade and pole with a shackle. In the unlikely event the turnbuckle fails, this will keep the shade connected to the pole and stop it from "flapping" and causing damage or injury.

Your Questions, Answered!


Can you take your shades down?
Yes! After we have installed them and set them up, you can take them down. But we do not recommend taking them down unless a hurricane is expected to exceed 85mph. You do not need to store them for the winter or "off season".

Before you take anything down, you must first mark the shades where they go. They are custom fit and only work one way. Loosen the turnbuckles. You may need a ratchet strap for the first one or two connection points. After that you simply remove the bow shackles and lower the shade.

Can you clean the shade sails?
Yes, with a light detergent like simple green or there are products on the internet that are made for shade sails. Do not high pressure wash them.
