Are you looking for a way to get some shade during the hot summer months in Australia? The temperature can range anywhere from 20°C to 35°C (68°F to 95°F) during the summer. If you’re looking to find a way to protect your family from all that heat while enjoying the outdoors, then commercial shade sails may be the supreme choice to benefit you.
The following are the best reasons you should get shade sails for your home.
Protection from the Sun and Rain
The basic function of commercial shade sails is to provide shade and protection from the sun. The fabric used in the construction of these sails can provide up to 99% protection from UV rays.
Make sure to call the manufacturer if you do not see any sun protection rating on their product page. Shade sails allow your kids to play outdoors even on a hot sunny day in Australia.
Shade sails are also weatherproofed. That means the fabric is water repellant. However, to stay on the safe side, make sure to ask the manufacturer about waterproofing. Go for products that repel water to ensure that the sails last longer.
They Make Your Home Look Dazzling
If you pay attention to the color, size, and design of commercial shade sails, you will instantly add beautiful touches to your home’s exterior. You can use them to enhance the aesthetics of your house.
Let’s say you have a wall or side of the house that has seen better days. Instead of redoing the façade or repainting that side of your home, you can set up a shade sail and use it as the highlight of that part of your property.
That way you keep the eyes on the beautiful new sails and the unsightly wall provides an interesting backdrop.
The fabric that is used to construct commercial shade sails is a type of semi-permeable material. That means it allows air to flow, but it prevents UV rays and rain.
Expert shade sail craftsmen can install the sails in different angles using different shapes to provide your family with ample protection from the outdoor elements yet provide you with good ventilation.
Pay attention to the support structures that the installation team will use. They will use a variety of supports to set up the sail.
They can use a pergola, your home’s roof, a wall, and freestanding posts to support the setup of commercial shade sails. If you want the sails to protect you from the rain, the installer will set up the sails at an angle to allow the water to run off rather easily.
Note that some sails are not 100% waterproof. However, they will allow a gentle breeze to enter the structure of the sail’s interior to provide you with a breathable shade.
Pay attention to supports used and the structures where the sails are attached to. The installation crew may use their own posts and supports to serve as the sail’s frame.
The supports should be able to hold the entire weight of the fabric. Another technique is to use multiple smaller sails to allow for smaller and more secure supports.
These smaller sails add aesthetic qualities to your home, and they allow more airflow within the shaded area.
Easy Setup and Installation
The manufacturer’s installation crew will make the setup look so easy. Commercial shade sails are designed to be easy to install. In case you want to redesign the whole thing or just move it to a different part of the house, you can call and have it dismantled and set elsewhere.
Shade sails do not only protect from the heat and rain, but they also provide many other benefits. They are easy to set up, and they add beauty to your home.
