Watching for Shade Sail Damage

Shade sails look unassuming once they are installed. Really, they are just pieces of fabric installed in such a way to minimise the blast of the sun on playgrounds, patios, parks, outdoor seating areas, public squares or other high traffic outdoor spots. However, while the design of a shade sail might seem simplistic and effortless, the science is a little more complex than you might think. For one thing, shade sails are always bearing the brunt of the elements-including the sun’s UV rays, shifting temperatures, rain, wind and maybe even hail. For another thing, shade sails are continually being stretched to hundreds of kilograms of tension, via multiple anchor points around the installation.

It goes without saying, then, that shade sails can and do experience a good deal of wear and tear over time. By using only the highest quality materials and products available-not only for the shade sail itself but also for the metal anchor points-Versatile Structures has minimised problems with shade damage in Brisbane. We can even provide special steel coatings to suit specific site conditions, which can give additional durability where needed.

Still, it’s always a good idea to watch your shade sails for signs of damage. Especially after rough storms, a visual inspection of your shade sails is a smart step to identify maintenance concerns or other problems. Specifically, look out for these issues:

  • Tension problems: Your shade sail should always be stretched taut. If you notice the sail flapping in the breeze, it is time to call for shade sail damage repairs in Brisbane.
  • Anchor point damage: The anchor points are arguably the most critical parts of the shade sail structure. If they are damaged or starting to corrode, then the entire installation may be compromised.
  • Sail damage: Of course, you should also look out for signs of damage to the sails themselves. If your sails are torn, fraying, or have holes forming, you should call Versatile Structures. Also keep an eye out for mould or mildew on your sails, as these unwanted growths can affect longevity.
