Shade sails are artistic canopies that provide sun shade and UV protection for playgrounds, swimming pools, backyard patios, and other outdoor living spaces. Tenshon uses shade fabric to manufacture standard and custom shade sails in the United States and distributes them worldwide. The inward curves along the sides of each shade fabric panel are indicative of shade sails and are engineered to help evenly spread and distribute the tension placed at each connection point through the entire sail. The result is sail shaped sunshade capable of providing shade in an iconic architectural form. Our shade sails, roman shades and other shading products provide between 91% and 99% UVR blockage. The shade provided can lower ambient air temperature beneath the sail upwards of 10 to 15 degrees fahrenheit. Additionally, because the shade fabric is breathable, it will not trap the heat beneath. Instead, our shade sails and roman shade products create an open and cool transitional space.
Our shade sails are manufactured in the USA using UV stabilized high density polyethylene (HDPE) shade fabric and UV stabilized sewing thread. Each corner is reinforced using multiple layers of shade cloth and a stainless steel d-ring. A pocket is sewn around the entire perimeter of the sail to house a tensioning wire rope (sold separately) which is designed to help transfer the tensile load from the corner tensioning device (sold separately) to the center of the sail.
