Shade sails suit the Qld lifestyle, look fantastic and offer a cost effective solution to ensure we all have adequate shade cover at home, your place of business or our learning institutions. It is legislated that schools and childcare centres in Qld provide a certain percentage of available outdoor areas in shade, to create that barrier between you and the sun. All Brisbane Shade & Sails fabrics are endorsed by the Cancer Council of Australia and can offer up to 98% UV protection, dependent on colour choice.
Shade sails are available in any shape or form providing there are adequate connection points to absorb the high, constant wind loads. Fixings are either steel posts, galvanised then powder-coated and set into engineered concrete footings, starting at a minimum of 1200mm deep or other engineer approved methods of connecting to suitable existing structures.
Good quality shade fabric will have minimum stretch which is required to ensure a tight fit and reduce sail sag. The best results will be achieved with a highly tensioned sail, with plenty of height differentials that tend to take on a three dimensional appearance.
While shade sails may look very similar when completed, a lot of companies will cut corners to save themselves money, but at Brisbane Shade & Sails the manufacturing processes we use plus the addition of CAD programming, ensure we produce the best possible value for money shade sails available.
