Outdoor Sun Shade Sails
My Personal Recommendation
I used Phoenix Outdoor Sun Shade Sails in my backyard and I trust their product. They are a great addition to your home’s outdoor space wherever you could use an additional shade zone. Phoenix Outdoor Sun Shade Sails provide UV protection from the sun, a cool place for children to play, or an outdoor shaded area for entertaining guests. Set up in a permanent installation like I did, or use them for portable shade.
All Phoenix Outdoor Sun Shade Sails come as complete kits including all necessary mounting hardware. The 18.5′ square sail kit includes the 18.5′ per side square sail, 2 turnbuckles, 2 carabiners, 4 pad eyes, 4 9′ lengths of rope, and 16 wood screws. The sail has 4 D Rings, one sewn into each corner, which resist twisting or movement. All mounting hardware and D Rings are made from 6mm Zinc coated steel.
The shade sail itself is constructed from a heavy duty 180g/m2 polyethylene weave material which resists mold and mildew and is easy to clean with simple soap and water. Unlike cloth or canvas materials, the polyethylene weave does not absorb water or humidity. This water resistance, together with built in UV protection, ensures Phoenix Outdoor Sun Shade Sails stand up to years of outdoor exposure.
Important information – A MUST Read if you are installing Phoenix Sun Shade Sails!
Phoenix Sun Shade Sails are sold in two varieties: Home and Professional. The home sails have a lighter weight material and use galvanized 6mm hardware. These sails are lighter and easier to install and are available at a more economical price point. The professional sails use a heavier material and 8mm Stainless Steel hardware. If your area of intended use is subject to strong winds or significant precipitation, like my area, you may want to consider the professional option. I used the Professional kit, but upgraded the entire installation process as defined on my Installing Our Shade Sails page.
Now you know why I trust Phoenix Outdoor Sun Shade Sails! I hope you found this information useful for your sun shade sail project!
