Nothing is better than kicking back on your patio on a summer day, enjoying the clean, fresh air, and spending time relaxing outdoors. Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t always cooperate. The hot summer sun can quickly turn your patio into a raging inferno, making it too hot to comfortably spend time sitting outside.
One of the most effective ways to counteract this problem is through the use of shade sails. These unique fabric structures are designed to create shade over patios, decks, and other outdoor gathering areas.
The basic design of these shade-producing sails is relatively simple. They are typically made out of a rectangular or triangular piece of fabric. Heavy-duty grommets are inset into each corner of the fabric. Through the use of special mounting hardware, the sail is attached to nearby structures or posts. Once it is stretched tight, it creates a temporary “roof” or shelter over the patio.
The fabric is designed to block out the sun, helping to create a cool, shaded area underneath. Installing one of these simple devices can help keep your patio or deck a lot cooler during the summer, making it much more enjoyable to spend time outside. Instead of sweating under the blistering hot sun, you can relax in the shade, enjoying a cool, comfortable space on even the hottest summer days.
The special fabric used in the construction of these sails is also designed to block out UV rays, helping to protect your skin and eyes and minimizing your risk of developing skin cancer.
Shade sails are affordable, easy to install, and versatile. You can use one large sail over your patio or you can install multiple smaller sails in an overlapping pattern to cover even more of your outdoor area. Once they are installed, these sails create cool shaded areas while still allowing plenty of air to move through the space.…
