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. So you can sit outside at any time. Is there a heavy shower on a summer evening? Then you will always be dry.
Sunshade with Angle of Inclination
When mounting a waterproof shade sail, it is important to take an angle of inclination, also called slope, into account. 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 is its rails with adjustable eye. This allows you to adjust the angle of your sail even after mounting. For example, you can hang the sail horizontally, but adjust it at an angle during a rain shower. The rails are 1 meter long, so good for a large slope. In addition, the rails are also useful for adjusting the shadow afterwards. You will also 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 sail 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 cloth 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 a unique 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.
