 is used for all shade sails.

Double Stitching and Double Webbing

Sail corners are double reinforced for strength and durability.

Hardware is attached using double layers of webbing. 

Hems are double lock stitched (as opposed to chain stitching) so they will not unravel should one section become damaged.

Hems hold the continuous 316 marine grade stainless steel wire cable.

Best Quality Wire, Fittings and Sail Posts

Stainless steel wire cable is 316 marine grade quality. It is sewn inside the double stitched hem. This steel cable increases the strength of the shade sail and ensures proper tension and uniform shape over time.

Stainless steel bearing in each corner (316 marine grade) of the shade sail allows the wire cable to move in the wind without chaffing the sail fabric.
