Shade Sail Fabrics
One of the most important decisions to make when choosing a shade sail is the type of fabric that it's made from. Choose a cheap shade sail made from poor quality materials and the fabric will likely fade, rip and tear in strong weather conditions, or even just from being exposed to the sun. It's crucial to buy a shade sail that is made from quality materials as they are strong and designed to withstand extreme weather conditions such as wind, rain and sunlight.
There are 2 choices of shade sail fabrics available: water proof and water resistant fabrics. Water proof shade sail fabric is coated with PVC to ensure that no water passes through the fabric, keeping whatever is underneath the shade sail dry. Water resistant shade sail fabrics are not 100% water proof but allow for air flow and better ventilation.
Either choice depends on what the shade sail will be used for and a good shade sail company will help you decide which shade sail is the right one for your needs. Shade sail fabrics also come in a huge range of colours so there's a shade sail to complement your home or business. Darker colours block out more light and create a cooler environment and show dirt less. Lighter colours let more light in and are ideal if you don't want to block out too much natural light.
