CUSTOM MADE SHADE SAILS

HOW TO MEASURE UP TRIANGLE SHADE

3 CONNECTION POINT CUSTOM SHADE SAIL

Firstly, before we get into ‘how to measure a triangle shade sail’, we need to confirm a triangle really is the best option for your shade sail requirements. Shade sails have ‘scalloped’ edges, meaning they curve inwards between each fixing point.

Triangle Sail Old and New

As the curves of the sails come back to back out to the points, the amount of shade is reduced. Like these examples you can see the lack of shade as it reaches out to the connection points.

HOW TO MEASURE UP TRIANGLE

PROCEEDING TO MEASURE UP

If you are happy with the shape of a triangle shade sail and understand the limitations of shade they produce, all we need to make a new custom made triangle shade sail is ‘point to point’ measurements from connection point to connection point. We will then do the deductions for turn-buckles and shackles for tension.
