Shade Sail Considerations

Before purchasing a San Diego shade sails it is very important to select and measure your shade sail installation areas while thinking about the design you are trying to accomplish while carefully selecting what structures will provide the shade sail anchor points. If there are no existing structures for installation, consider using steel poles or wooden posts for anchoring. Posts should be set in concrete footings of at least 30” deep and a foot wide. Also, pay attention to the sun’s travel from sunrise to sunset – this is critical in positioning your sun shade sails to provide maximum shade and comfort throughout the day.

Next, consider what shade sail shapes, sizes and colors you will need to purchase to create your extraordinary outdoor oasis. Combining square shade sails and triangle shade sails will give your San Diego outdoor oasis an artistic flair. Also, it is wise to use the manufacturer’s shade sail installation hardware for securing the sail to your structures or poles. Square shade sails use different installation hardware than triangle shade sails so buy both if you are mixing your shade sails.
