How to Choose the Right Shade Fabric

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right shade fabric for you. Each shade cloth will have a range of features and benefits. Here’s what to consider;

  • Will the shade sail be exposed to adverse weather conditions or sun and extreme UV rays?
  • Where will the shade sail be situated?
  • Does the shade sail need to be waterproof?
  • What size of area does the shade structure need to cover?
  • Will the shade sail cover people or vehicles?
  • How close will the shade sail be to your property?

Answering all these questions will assist you in determining which shade sail is right for you. Each shade cloth will be slightly more effective in certain situations and you can choose the one more suited to you. Read more about Rainbow Shades shade cloths;
