Before you install your shade sail, there are a few key things to consider to ensure that you create a clear plan and get the most out of your shade sail.

Planning is important to help you decide on the right shade for your space, the right position for the shade, what the size of your shade should be, etc. Consider the layout of the area and how you plan to use it.

To start planning, think about the following factors:

  • The angle of the sun throughout the day
  • How much surface area the sun reaches
  • What area you want to be covered
  • What the area will be used for (e.g. entertaining guests, kid’s play area, cafe courtyard?)
