Regardless of where you live in Australia, dealing with hot weather or bright sunny days can be a bit too much. And for those who work outdoors, too much exposure to the sun can be uncomfortable. A strategic shade sail offers comfort and relief to everyone. Some commercial shade sails include kiosks, bus stops, carports, picnic and playground shelters, park pavilions, and athletic facilities to name a few. There is no end to how commercial shade structures can be customised to keep users happy and comfortable.
Components Of A Shade Sail Structure
Commercial shade sails used for homes are made up of fabrics tied or bound to posts. These posts are set in the ground in concrete for stability. Shade sails fall under different categories based on the number of points that are moored. For instance, a four-point sail consists of fabric tethered to four individual posts. The posts can be of varying heights to make a unique and custom shape. In most commercial settings, a four-post setting is used to make the structure stable and permit entry form every side.
Designing And Installing Commercial Shade Sails
- If you are planning on getting shade sails installed near or around your business, you must decide what purpose it will serve. Do you want privacy, protection against the elements, or do you want to add a sense of style to the outdoors? It is possible to have one or all of these features.
- The next step is to decide whether you want to install it on a raised or level surface. What about the posts?
- What is the size of the area you want to shade?
- Would you like to match the sail to the roof or to the building or both?
- What height would you like the shade sail to be? The higher the sail, the less shade it will provide.
If you want to get it installed for an outdoor dining area for a restaurant, the recommendation is to get neutral colours. Brighter colours look good if the shade sails are for a school.
In general, a combination of the above factors works well for all commercial shade sails. With the right shade in place, you will not have to worry about the weather or the effect of the elements. Once you have picked the fabric, you must choose a colour. You could stick with one or choose multiple colours to make the area look bright and cheerful. The choice of colour will contribute to a contemporary look and add depth and interest to the overall design.
The price of the project will vary based on the price of the material. Even if the chosen fabric is expensive, it will be worth the investment in the long run. Consider getting square shades or some unique shape that appeals – you want maximum coverage.
There are many ways to create new patterns to get the best possible shade – let them be functional and unique. Having shade to protect your property does not have to be boring.
