.Extremely Affordable

Rectangle shade sails will provide possibly the most affordable solution of all to increase your outdoor living space. Shade Cloth is one of the most economical shade materials in the market today. It is more affordable than metal roof sheeting, roof tiles, timber, masonry, glass, canvas, fibreglass sheeting, Teflon-coated fibreglass fabric, polycarbonate sheeting and concrete, to name a few.

Due to the rectangle shape, rectangle shade sails are easy to manufacture and require fewer posts than having two triangle shade sails; which is what you would otherwise need to cover the same area.

Easy Installation

Installation of rectangle shade sails is very straight forward and requires very little work; this means you avoid expensive renovations and the need for any council approvals.

Rectangle shade sails can be easily attached to the exterior of your home. Moreover, because they are rectangular, they can be fitted directly against your home to offer complete coverage; fix two attachments to the exterior wall or gutter, and attach the other two to sturdy aluminium posts which are installed by shade sail installers. When installed in such a manner, the rectangle shade sail will provide total protection for you and your family.
