Pre-made sail package
A long time ago when we had 4 sizes and 4 colours we used these cartons for packing.

Now with 28 sizes and 34 colours it is impractical to have a box for each size and colour so we use Polypropylene mesh to protect and wrap the shade sails for delivery.

Pre-Made Shade Sails

Our Commercial grade pre-made made sails are identical in all ways to our Custom shade sails, but they are cheaper because they are made from templates.

Our shade sails should not be compared with cheap imitations which often use inferior materials without adequate UV stabilizers, leading to quick fading, material weakening, and insufficient UV protection, resulting in a much shorter lifespan.

Tension is important to get a long life out of a shade sail. Our sails made with a shade cloth weight exceeding 300GM² can all be highly tensioned and mounted permanently. For the pre-made shade sails we offer a lightweight version which should not to be used for tensioned permanent installation. It should be taken down in bad weather and stored through the winter months but, if well cared for, will have a useful life of 10 years or more.

With 28 sizes we have a much large size choice than any other maker and more colors. The Commercial shade sails have 20 colors and the Lightweight have 9. Click below to see the prices, to purchase you will be sent to SHADE-SAILS.com, our website dedicated to the Pre-made shade sails.

SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT!

At Sail Shade World our pricing formula is fair to the customer and fair to us as a business. We are not in a price war with our competitors we just do what is right. Our experience, efficiency, low overhead and good management means that we are always less than our competitors, who also make very good shade sails.

Comparing Sail Shade World prices with same or similar fabric, same accessories, webbing not cable, delivery costs and taxes to be paid will inevitably show you a very good saving.

At it's most basic it should be very simple, just dig some holes, put poles in the ground and stretch some fabric between them. Job done!

What we will tell you is much the same except you need to be aware of
  • what type of poles to use
  • what size for the poles according to size of the sail and prevailing wind conditions.
  • How deep should the poles be (based on above)
  • positioning the shade sail to get best shade effect
  • working out the distance of the poles relative to the size of the shade sail
  • Is it better for your space to have 3 triangles, 2 square sails or a single sail with 8 mounting points?
  • What fabric to choose based on what looks good, UV protection, size and load
  • .. there is more...

This is not your quaint, roadside workshop churning out shade sails; it's a bustling factory where highly trained technicians meticulously craft each sail.

Their sails unfurl their canvas arms at the U.S. Embassy in Brunei and provide a serene ambiance for the City of Ville de Carouge in Switzerland. The U.S. Navy in Japan has also recognized the utility and quality of these sails, incorporating them into their overseas bases.

From the exotic Andilana Beach Resort in Madagascar to the scientific minds at the Marine Science Institute in Redwood, California, these shade sails bridge the gap between functionality and aesthetics. The academic community isn't left out either; UNIVERSITE REUNION in Le Reunion finds its scholars under the cool embrace of Sail Shade World's creations.

The tranquility of Rock City Gardens in Chattanooga and the aquatic wonders at Maui Ocean Center in Hawaii are enhanced by these protective canopies. Even further north, Marina Disraëli in Quebec, Canada, shelters its boats and patrons alike beneath the sturdy fabric.

In Louisiana, the SPCA New Orleans ensures that both two-legged and four-legged friends enjoy outdoor activities without the harshness of the sun. Across the ocean, the Royal Malta Yacht Club in Malta adds a touch of elegance to their maritime setting with these stylish sails.

Imagine sipping a cold brew in the beer garden of Firetrucker Brewery in Ankeny, Iowa, or feeling the gentle sea breeze at Mistral Beach Club in Marbella, Spain. Maybe you are taking a drink on the beach in Albania shaded from the strong midday sun – all locations share the common thread of Sail Shade World's presence.

The company has made significant inroads into education and hospitality, with over 300 schools and kindergartens around the world enjoying shaded playgrounds and outdoor areas.

AVAILABLE SHADE SAIL OPTIONS



Our shade sails, unlike other manufacturers, offer a range of unique options which improve functionality and customization. Here are the specific options which highlight our commitment to providing tailored solutions for you:
  1. Jaw and Pin Marine Turnbuckles Upgrade:
    For an additional nominal fee, you can upgrade the standard hook and eye turnbuckles to more robust and sleek jaw and pin marine-type turnbuckles, which offer superior durability and a nautical aesthetic.
  2. CAD Review Before Manufacture:
    There is an option for you to review a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) drawing of your custom shade sail before it goes into production, ensuring that all specifications are correct.
  3. Support Tags for LED Rope or Mister Tubing:
    If you choose this opting we add tags around the underside edge of the shade sail. These are designed to support the installation of an LED rope light or mister tubing, adding functionality for lighting or cooling.
  4. Reduced Parabolic Curve:
    So a sail will tension properly the sides have a 5% parabolic curve. If you want this reduced to 2% then click each side you want the change. (this is customer choice but we do not recommend it)
  5. Palm Straps:
    These are specially designed straps for securing a sail to a tree without causing damage. The straps are not expensive and offer an innovative solution for integrating shade sails into natural surroundings.
  6. Additional Support Rings:
    For a small extra charge, support rings can be added to the sides of the shade sail. These rings are intended to be inline with the sail and are not used for tensioning; they serve as additional support points.
  7. Additional size reduction to improve tensioning:
    You can choose to have the overall dimensions of the shade sail reduced by 3%. Many professionals like this option since it ensures excellent tension. (This option is only visible to select on the ordering page)
