As you are now a proud owner of a shade sail, you might be wondering how to hang it up like a professional. It is not as complex as it might seem. There are certain factors that you need to consider before you begin to hang shade sails in Arizona.
Choose a suitable location to hang your shade sail by considering the direction of the sun, the size of the shade sail and the strength of the structure.
Correct fixing points
Once you have identified the location to install the shade sail, choose the correct fixing point for the corner of the sails. You can even choose existing points such as a large tree or fence nearby.
You will find a variety of fixing accessories that will help you to hang the shade sails perfectly. Choose these accessories according to your specific requirements.
If there are no existing fixture points, you need to install your own posts which can be either in timber or steel. The best size that you can choose will be 125x125mm.
Connect the corners of the shade to the installation points. Ensure that all the footings are strong and secured to the ground properly. You can use various types of installation tools to secure the ends of the sails to the poles. A ratchet tensioning tool can be used to fix the corners of the sails properly.
Before you chose a shade sail, it is essential to measure the area accurately so that you can choose these shades accordingly. There are a wide plethora of sizes of shade sails available online. If the area is larger than your shade sail, then you can install more than one shade sail.
