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.
For this design you will also need some rope. Its lenght and diameter depends on the distance between the loops and the fixation points (wall mounts, poles, tree branches…). You can then attach your shade sail securely to your fixation points using the 10 meters of 1 cm diameter rope recommended.
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 the large sails and/or when they’re attached with coir rope.
