    • Great over my pergola

      When I finally got the pergola I had always wanted over my patio it was too hot to sit there! Got this sail sun shade to go over the pergola and it solved all my problems. Very well made and stands up well to all weather conditions.

      Still trying to figure out how to put this shade up without damaging my new siding or my new roof. Like the concept of this shade. Most likely I won't get to it now until next summer. We live in the northeast. Summer is just about gone now.

      Even though I ordered the wrong size fro my area, we still used the shade. It immediately made a huge difference in the temperature under my pergola. I would have preferred a little more rain control, but it works for what it is.

      We ordered several of these to cover our backyard patio area thinking they would be a temporary shade solution for our south facing patio. Seven years later they are like new(we hose them down with baking soda and detergent at the end of each season). The knitted fiber and folded sewn seams have withstood heavy winds and rains through each season, spring to fall.

    • Good Value Shade
      Verified Purchase

      We bought this to shade part of our pool from the intense Texas sun. It's still spring but it is already doing a good job. The included hardware was poor quality but I expected that based on reviews from others. Installation went well after picking up some good turnbuckles and anchor bolts from the hardware store. This product is large and awkward so plan on having a couple of able bodied folks on hand for installation especially if stretching it over a pool. Given our available mounting locations, we weren't able to mount it with 2 diagonal corners higher than the others as recommended in the instructions. This led to a sag in the center with our installation due to the size/weight of the product. It stood up to some big winds but seemed ready to "take flight" so I'd recommend taking it down if high winds are expected.

    • Adequate Shade
      Verified Purchase

      This shade does provide an adequate amount of shade but the product description is misleading. It says the dimensions are 18x18 when in fact that is the possible dimension it can be stretched to, at least that is what I was told by the customer service rep. The square shade went up as shown however no matter how much tension we put on it even with a pitch allowed for rain, dew, etc it still sags in the middle. i am thinking overall the traingular ones would have been a better buy than the square. The sagging in the middle drives me crazy not to mention that overall it is not good for the fabrics longterm wear.

    • Great Shade, Dangerously Horrible Hardware
      Verified Purchase

      Do not underestimate the poor quality of the included hardware, especially the turnbuckles. Unlike some other reviewers, I went ahead and attempted installation with the included hardware. Without even reaching the necessary tension, one of the turnbuckles failed completely, with the eye bolt slipping right through the turnbuckle body. Local hardware store sells stainless 5 1/4" turnbuckles for about $5/each. The shade itself is very nice and appears to be good quality, but they sure dropped the ball on the hardware and would have been better off not even including it.

      Verified Purchase

      I purcahsed to of these sails for our playground. They were very affordable. Our handyman installed them with a helper. It was definitely a 2-man job. He replaced the hardware with a better quality and the ropes with steel cables because we were concerned ablout wear and tear. The sails look great and provide cool shade. The children and staff are enjoying them.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Description says: Adjustable 16- to 18-foot size Dimensions: 18 feet wide x 18 feet long If it measures 18 x 18, how do you adjust is to be 16 x 16?"

      • A:

        In reality, it does not adjust to 16 X 16, and it can stretch to 18’ 4” X 18’ 4”, however, you can hang it loose. We are currently working on changing our description and making it more accurate.

    • Q:

      "WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE SHADE CORNER TO CORNER BEFORE YOU STRETCH TO INSTALL?"

      • A:

        The dimension of the shade corner to corner (ring to ring) before stretching the sail is about 17 feet.

    • Q:

      "Can I mount this to the side of my house , I would like it to be tight to the house then tie off to a tree on the opposite sides? Is it possible to be tight to the house ? "

      • A:

        You can mount it to the side of your house. But it will not be tight. You would have to secure a piece of wood the same length and mount the edge of the cover behind it. Pull it over the top and then tie it to the tree or trees.

    • Q:

      "Does this shade sail allow water to pass through?"

      • A:

        Yes it does

      • A:

        Yes, somewhat. As it's not a total umbrella, you won't get drenched either.

      • A:

        Yes but if you manage to hang it level (as opposed to angled) it can still accumulate water and weigh it down.

    • Q:

      "Which shade color is the best to reduce heat?"

      • A:

        The shade color that is best to reduce heat would be lighter colors, the lighter the color, the more it will reflect heat instead of absorbing it.

    • Q:

      "what is the percentage of UV blockage of this product. Thank you."

      • A:

        The large square sail sun shade blocks up to 90% of UV rays.

    • Q:

      "Looking for something to provide shade from Florida sun for our pool. We have a aluminum pool cage. Can this be fastened to metal?"

      • A:

        You have to have something to attach it to so it probably depends on the style of your framework. Also some metal is sharp around the edges which could result in the cutting of the shade straps. Sorry I can't be more helpful but perhaps someone else will have a better answer. Also it needs a strong frame as there is a good bit of tension in the winds and rain.

      • A:

        We actually have this shade hanging from our pool cage in SW Florida. We take it down in the winter and hang it in the summer. We hung eye bolts through the metal supports so the weight of the shade is supported by the entire structure. It works great except in extreme wind, and then we drop it to the ground.

    • Q:

      "Can you mount this on a brick patio? We are looking for a privacy solution from our neighbors above that can look into or condo patio."

      • A:

        As long as you have proper hardware it can be attached to most anything. However mine is overhead so attaching was easier. Have had 3 years in the hot south Alabama sun and it still looks like new. No color fading or fraying. We love it and I would certainly purchase again. Offers great privacy!

      • A:

        Yes, same as lucytwoshoes. You will need poles or strong hardware to connect the sail shade. We are in Arizona and the sun is very intense and the sail shades still look like new after 2 years.
