Common Materials Used
Polyethylene: A popular choice for shade sails and structures as it is durable, resistant to fading and provides excellent UV protection. It is also relatively affordable and easy to work with.
PVC-Coated Polyester: This strong, durable, UV-resistant material is often used for commercial shade sail applications. It is also resistant to mildew and mould and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
Canvas: This heavy-duty fabric offers good UV protection and is resistant to fading and mildew. It is often used in residential shade sail applications and is known to be sturdy and long-lasting.
Acrylic: Acrylic is a robust fabric that offers excellent UV protection and is resistant to fading. It is also water-resistant, making it a good choice for shade sails that will be exposed to rain.
All these materials mentioned above can provide UV protection, but the level and quality of protection can differ depending on the fabric and its properties. Shade sails made with high-density polyethylene or PVC-coated polyester are often recommended to ensure maximum UV protection and longevity.
