The waterproof shade sails from Wovar are made of polyester and have a water-repellent coating. The advantage of a waterproof shade cloth is that you are protected against both the sun and the rain. Is there a heavy shower on a summer evening? Then you can still sit outside.
Add a slope
If you install the sail without a slope, a puddle of water may form on the fabric. As a result, the sail becomes increasingly heavier and can be damaged. In order for the rainwater to drain away, the sail must therefore slope downwards. The larger the canvas, the greater the slope. As a rule, approximately 20 cm per linear meter of the sail is used. Do you have a 5 meter sail? Then take into account a slope of 1 meter.
A handy advantage are rails with an adjustable eyeplate. This allows you to adjust the angle of your sail even after mounting. For example, you can hang the sail horizontally, but adjust it so it has an angle during a rain shower. The rails are 1 meter long, good for a large slope. In addition, the rails are useful for adjusting the sail taking into account the changing position of the sun. You will find the adjustable rails in our range of shade sail hardware.
Shade sail ideas
Installing a waterproof shade sail with a slope can be done in a number of ways. We list these ways for you below. For shade sails with 4 corners:
- 2 high angles and 2 low angles
- 2 high corners and 2 low corners (alternately)
- 1 high angle and 3 low angles
- 3 high angles and 1 low angle
All combinations are also possible for a shade sail with 3 corners. It is up to you to choose which option best suits your garden and situation. In any case, keep in mind that the angle of the canvas must be at least 20 degrees. In this way, the corner in your shade cloth not only ensures that rainwater runs off, but also has a unique and playful appearance.
Shade sail sun protection
Besides the fact that these shade sails are waterproof, they also protect very well against the sun. Waterproof shade sails, just like the standard HDPE shade sails, block 90 to 95% of harmful UV rays. During a hot summer it is important not to sit in the sun for too long. With the shade sails from Wovar you can enjoy the summer wonderfully and carefree.
