Let’s begin designing!

What type of sail do you like?

Cable-Tension?  -​  Lace-On?  –  Invisible Frame?

  1. Lace-on and Invisible Frame sails are pretty straight-forward when it comes to design. It just needs to fit your existing structure. So you get to choose a fabric type and color and we’ll measure and install it!
  2. If you choose a Cable-Tension Shade Sail, check out these design tips:

 Overlapping Sails

Overlapping sails can get you the shade you want and have a really nice look. Overlapping shade sails should be at least 3 feet apart so that they do not rub against each other.

Height Differences 

If the attachment points are all at the same height, the sail will sag a bit in the middle and move more in the wind. Using different heights to create a Hypar or Twist shape will create a tight sail that doesn’t move about in the wind. It also makes for a more dynamic look!

Curved Edges

Don’t forget to account for the curved edges! Cable Tensioned sails will have a natural curve along the edges. The longer the side, the deeper the curve. We can make the curve as minimal as possible, or deeper for a more dramatic look.
