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.
Just add these heart-shaped thimbles to your pre-order, unless you already have some at home.
The kit for the design N.3 depends on the sail dimension. For each loop you will need 1 heart-shaped thimble + 1 plastic cable tie + some fine rope (in order to hide the cable tie). An instruction manual is also included.
Please note that we have decreasing prices for it; depending on the dimension you choose and therefore the number of heart-shaped thimble you will need.
For this design you will also need either some rope or steel cables. Rope’s lenght and diameter depends on the distance between the loops and the fixation points. Please be specific when finalizing your order.
As an alternative to ropes, steel cables are recommended for larger sizes (we do not sell them though). Please see the different set up in the Installation menu. For any technical questions do not hesitate to contact us.
Shade sails are 1 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.
