Duranet Shade Sails are fully tensioned using turnbuckles and are carefully measured to exactly span each fixing point, fashioning a very professional appearance.
Below are all the measurements that should be taken from fixing point to fixing point. (IE: eye to eye) and we make all the necessary reductions for fixings and stretch.
A shade sail is a device to create outdoor shade based on the basic technology as a ship’s sail. Shade sails use a flexible membrane tensioned between several anchor points. While generally installed permanently, they are cheap and easy to set up. They are usually provided above public gathering places such as seating areas and playgrounds in countries where strong sun radiation makes prolonged stays in the open sun unpleasant or dangerous due to sunburn and skin cancer risk.

Shade Sails offer high UV protection from harmful UV rays produced by the sun. Fortunately children are now spending more and more time outdoors however, we need to protect them from the risk of skin damage such as skin cancers.
