Why Shade Sails Are Unique

Shade sail canopy systems are a series of overlapping geometric shapes made from durable outdoor fabric. They provide sun shade and UV protection for shopping centers, playgrounds, swimming pools, patios, and other outdoor commercial spaces.

The inward curves along the sides of each shade fabric panel are engineered to help spread and distribute the tension placed at each connection point evenly over the shade sails. The result is a shade sail capable of providing functional shade in an iconic architectural form.

A Fun, Custom Design Process

At Coastal Canvas, we think it’s okay for fun and business to mix. We encourage all our commercial customers to have fun with our custom design process. This is especially true with the infinitely customizable shade sail!

Design: Color, Shape, Size

The design process starts with your vision. Whether you have already engaged an architect or not, Coastal Canvas will work with you to lay out what your custom shade sails will look like.

The durable, UV-blocking fabric is available in a variety of colors. And there are many approaches we can take to fabricating appropriate structures to support sails of various sizes and shapes.

Placement and Orientation

You tell us where you want your shade sails on your commercial property, and we will conduct research to determine proper support structure placement and orientation.

We take sun locations throughout the year into account to determine how best to adjust the size, shape and three-dimensional orientation of the fabric for real-world application.

Fabrication and Installation

Coastal Canvas fabricates the support structures. Then you get to watch your vision come to life as we stretch the fabric panels between carefully-placed connection points.

The result is an example of beautiful fabric architecture that is effective at blocking UV radiation and adding vibrant color to your outdoor commercial spaces.
