Shade Sails

By Cocobid
May 4, 2014

We rarely see shade sails here in the United States, in contrast to countries like Australia, where their use is quite common. We stumbled upon them totally by accident and necessity about 9 years ago. After a nasty storm that tore our large awning off the western side of the patio, we needed a new form of sun protection fast. We installed these only as a temporary solution, but found that they would always be a permanent installation at our home.

Great idea of using chains instead of rope too ... in the Florida climate rope would deteriorate in a few years.
