What is a Shade Sail?
Coolashade Shade Sails are manufactured using a material called High Density Polyethylene that has been developed in Australia for providing shade with tensile structures. It has been developed over approximately 20 years and due to the high quality is very hard wearing and protected from the suns harmfully UV rays. This material is knitted together to form large rolls and is very strong and will not tear even if subject to harsh weather conditions. Coolashade Shade Sails buy our rolls of material direct from the manufacturer and make the Shade Sails in Spain using our own state of the art sail loft and machinery. Coolashade Shade Sails are available in 16 different colours which are in stock at all times. Coolashade Shade Sails are manufactured using the same technologies that are used for sea going yachts, right down to the threads used to sew the sail together. All Coolashade Shade Sails have a Stainless Steel cable in the perimeter to give a sturdy and secure installation under tension even in the strongest of winds. Shade Sails always have a curved edge, this helps to transfer the tension from the corner into the whole of the Shade Sail. This means that you can be assured that your installation will not flap or look scruffy after many years of usage.

Coolashade Shade Sail Installation
If you are considering having a Shade Sail Installation in Spain it is always advisable to use a specialist company like Coolashade Shade Sails, we take care of everything when installing a Shade Sail in Spain.
We start with the design, making sure that your completed installation is practical and also attractive. We also make sure that your area gains the maximum shade with the space available.
We will then undertake a small survey to make sure that the fixing points are strong and not going to affect any services that may be underground where we may have to install posts. We can also attach fixings to existing walls (subject to survey) using the latest Epoxy Resin chemical fixings, you can see how we fix to hollow walls here and also how we fix to solid concrete here. These are short videos on our suppliers website.
The specification of the finished installation is then discussed to ascertain what type of posts are needed and also what finish they will be, we can install Galvanised or Stainless Steel posts and fittings.
Normally at this point a quotation will be sent by email, the quotation will cover all aspects of the installation and will list every item that has been allowed for. This gives our clients piece of mind that they are being quoted for what they actually require.
When the Coolashade installation team arrive at your property to start the Shade Sail installation we will again discuss the positioning and areas where the posts are to be fitted, this gives our customers a chance to alter any aspect of the installation before starting. We will then start by creating the fixing points and once these have been done we will take the measurements so that the purpose made Coolashade can be manufactured to the exact dimensions. Once the Coolashade is made, normally within 1 week, we will return to install and tension the Shade Sail using marine quality shackles and tensioners.
Before leaving your property we make sure that all areas are clean and tidy and repairs to tiled floors are complete and match with the existing.
