Do you have an area that you just cannot enjoy because there just isn’t any shade? If you like to spend relaxing time outdoors, you are being exposed to the harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. This is where sun shade sails come in handy. These items protect our bodies from the unwanted exposure to UV rays. Shade sails are not only attractive but they effectively protect an area from the sun without giving a boxed in or restricted feeling. They are an excellent alternative to awnings, umbrellas, carports, and patio enclosures.

Let’s talk now about the top 4 benefits of Shade Sails:

  1. Protection from harmful UV rays:

These sails are meant for guarding us from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Sunlight, especially in summer, makes us feel good. But the UV rays are harmful to our bodies. This is the reason why we need some protection from these unwanted rays. This is where sun shade sails come to our rescue. They allow air flow and moisture to pass through while keeping the sun out. They block 85% of UV rays!

  1. Flexible to suit almost any application:

Shade sails come in all shapes and sizes and can be customized to suit almost any application. For some applications one large sail is best while for others it’s best to integrate multiple smaller sails in an overlapping pattern. Whether you’re looking for sun protection for your pool, patio, BBQ area, driveway, courtyard, entrance, veranda, playground, sandpit, or car port, an expertly designed shade sail is perfect. Shade sails are equally good for residential and commercial applications.

  1. Cost Effective:

One of the biggest advantages is affordability. Shade sails remain affordable while still providing you a durable, safe, and aesthetically pleasing sheltered area for the fraction of the cost of a stick built or solid structure you could use to get shade.

  1. Ventilation for extra cooling:

Most shade sails are made from permeable (mesh-type) material that allows airflow. Using different shapes and angles you are going to be able to create the maximum air flow through your environment. This means your entertaining area will stay cool even when the BBQ is firing.

Shade sails transform a simple outdoor setting into a dynamic, eye-catching area. Their remarkably simple yet stylish appearance is used in both residential and commercial applications. So Stop avoiding your yard for fear of baking in the sun! Shade sails are offered in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes to suit every need!
