Are your Shade Sails waterproof? Expand Minimise

We have two fabric options – Shade Sail cloth or Waterproof Fabric. Typically Shade Sails are designed to offer protection from the sun and are manufactured from the highest quality shade cloth. Regardless of what other companies tell you, this material is not waterproof! If you want a waterproof sail, let us know and we will price this option. Please see our colour range for both fabrics.

Are your structures classed as temporary or permanent? Expand Minimise

This question is usually raised due to misinformation around planning permission. Please note that even temporary structures can require planning permission, we will gladly give you help and honest advice with all your planning requirements. Call us for details on 01743 444100.

Are your structures retractable and should we ever take them down? Expand Minimise

As a rule, most of our standard designs are fixed-position and do not retract. Because of their robust manufacture and high-quality standards, they do not need to be taken down in any weather conditions. Ideally our Shade Sails would be taken down ahead of high winds or heavy snow although we know most of our clients don’t! We don’t use any specialist mechanisms that prevent you from doing this yourselves, but we also offer this as a service if required.

Can we move the structure after installation? Expand Minimise

Yes, most structures can be moved, and we can arrange this for you and ensure that all safety and quality features are maintained to the highest standards. If you know at the outset that your canopy may be moved in the future, please let us know as this could affect our product recommendations and how we carry out the installation. If you are looking to move an existing structure, please talk to us first. Call us on 01743 444100 today.
