Wovar Shade Sails
Are you looking for shade? With the shade sail from Wovar, you can create a wonderful place in the shade in no time. A shade sail has many advantages over a parasol. This way you can easily mount a shade cloth and it is possible to leave it hanging for a longer period of time. Placing sunscreen protection is possible anywhere because you can easily attach it to a wooden or stone wall, upright, or roof. You can use shade sails as a roof, patio screen, sunscreen, or complete patio cover above a pergola.
All Types and Sizes of Shade Sail Bunnings
Placing a sunshade is possible anywhere. This is because you can easily attach the canvas to a wooden or stone wall, upright or roof. Even in places where there is no attachment point, you can easily place a wooden post on the ground.
The complete range of shade sails consists of waterproof shade sails, triangle shade sails, square shade sails, rectangle shade sails, and shade sail fasteners. Would you like to place a shade cloth at the top of your pergola? View our complete range of harmonica shades.
Triangle shade sails are available in sizes 4 x 4 x 4 and 5 x 5 x 5 meters. These are available in gray, sand, and off-white. Prefer a square shade cloth? Then choose from our 4 x 4 or 5 x 5-meter shade sails. These are also available in gray, sand, and off-white. You will find a shade cloth rectangle in the size 3 x 4 meters. These come in gray or off-white.
Standard HDPE Shade Sails
The standard Wovar shade sails consist of high-quality 290gr/m2 HDPE, also known as high-density polyethylene. The knotted, water-permeable shade sails contain a special UV inhibitor, which offers resistance to approximately 90-95% of the sun's rays. The material is very strong and hardly absorbs water. This ensures that a shade cloth almost always remains free of rot and fungus.
The great advantage of these water-permeable HDPE sunscreens is that it also allows air to pass through so that the humidity that hangs under the shade cloth does not remain there. This also means that the sails are very suitable for use in windy places, like coastal towns or roof terraces. The air can pass through the shade cloth, which ensures that the cloth is less likely to be torn by the wind.
Waterproof Shade Sails
Waterproof shade sails have several advantages: they protect against the sun and are waterproof. This means that you can sit outside at any time. Is there a heavy shower on a summer evening? Then you will always be dry. When installing waterproof shade cloths, keep in mind that the shade cloth slopes down by 30 degrees, so that you can be sure that the water can drain well. The combination of the running down of the shade cloth and the Teflon layer ensures that water runs off quickly and easily.
Besides the fact that these shade sails are waterproof, they provide excellent protection against the sun. Waterproof shade cloths block 90 to 95% UV-resistant radiation. So relaxing on a hot summer day.
Advantages of Wovar shade sails
Shade sails have many advantages, like:
- Good sun protection;
- Installing a shade cloth is simple and can be done anywhere;
- Very affordable, especially if you compare it with a complete roof;
- Takes up little space on the ground (compared to, for example, a parasol base);
- You can also order a waterproof shade sail, so you can remain dry during a rain shower;
- Can withstand wind force well. Tip: please disassemble the shade sail in case of a heavy storm, though. This can be done quickly and prevents any damage to your shade cloth;
- Easy to remove in the winter
Can I leave a Shade Sail hanging all year round?
Because a standard awning is so maintenance-free and weather-resistant, it is even possible to leave it hanging all year round. However, we still recommend taking the fabric inside in extreme weather, such as snow, frost, heavy rainfall, or storms. The canvas is easy to remove and you can have it inside within a few minutes.
With a waterproof shade sail, however, please keep in mind that these are made of polyester, which is a lot more sensitive material than HDPE. For this reason, we recommend storing waterproof sunshades when you are not using them. This ensures the longest lifespan of the shade sail.
Shade Sail Mounting Accessories
In addition to various types of shade sails, Wovar also supplies all the necessary fasteners. Every shade cloth has a mounting ring in all corners, with which a sail can be attached to an attachment point. For additional mounting material, please see our shade sail mounting hardware page.
