Considerations for Buying Shade Sails in Sydney

Shade sails are arguably one of the most popular shade solutions used in Sydney and around Australia. That’s because they are incredibly versatile, stylish and offer great value for money. If you too have decided to buy a shade sail, then you’ve certainly made a good decision. Shade sails will add functionality and style to your outdoor space, whether you use them at home or your business establishment.

When buying shade sails in Sydney, there are a few considerations you must make to ensure you make a wise investment. As the owner of Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds, today I will tell you what you need to consider before, and when buying shade sails. Follow these considerations to ensure you purchase the best shade sail for your needs.

Preplanning is a must

Before purchasing shade sails in Sydney, you must do some preplanning first. Consider the space that you want shaded and how the sun’s angle changes throughout the day. Next, check to see if there are existing structures that can be used as anchor points around the area. If not, you’ll need to arrange for structural posts.

Another thing to consider is how you want to use the shaded space. For instance, if you’re looking to shade a kids’ play area, you’ll need a large shade sail that provides round-the-clock UVR protection. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a shade sail that allows you to enjoy the outdoors during the rains, you need a waterproof shade sail. Consider your needs to get an idea of what shade sail you should purchase.

Consider the angle of the sun. The time of the year is an important consideration when positioning a shade sail. We can simulate a shadow pattern in our planning software to show you what the shade sail shadow will cover on any day or time during the day. This way you have confidence that that sail will cover the area that you need in the hottest part of the summer months.

Quality of the shade fabric

The quality of the shade fabric is by far the most important factor to consider when purchasing shade sails in Sydney. Fabric quality determines everything about a shade sail – its UVR and UPF protection rating, as well as its longevity and warranty.
