Please note that this Design can also be installed on a structure, as the Design N1. It’s recommended when the support bars are more than 1 meter away from each other, or when you get very strong winds.
The shade sail weaving sifts the sun’s rays, is weatherproof resistant, rot-resistant and very sturdy. It allows air to pass through, for a fresh and pleasant feeling.
This design requires the installation of one steel heart-shaped thimble per loop, so that it is well reinforced and thus protected from friction and wear.
The kit for the design N.3 depends on the sail dimension. For each loop you will need 1 heart-shaped thimble + 2 plastic cable tie + some fine rope (in order to hide the cable tie). An instruction manual is also included.
For this design you will also need :
– some rope to attach the angle loops
– steel cables (product we don’t sell). Cable’s lenght and diameter depends on the distance between the loops and the fixation points. Usually a 0,5 cm cable diameter is enough.
Shade sails are 1,2 kg per m2, and they double in weight when wet. They dry very quickly thanks to their spaced out weaving. Coconut fiber becomes slack once it is wet, and this feature reverts when it dries up ; it’s how coconut fiber reacts to the humidity. It may be necessary to slightly stretch your shade sail after the first rains, specially regarding the large sails or when they’re attached with coir rope.
