Unfurling the Benefits of a Patio Shade Sail

In today’s competitive business landscape, every square foot of your outdoor space matters. Welcome to the world of the patio shade sail: the ingenious, aesthetically pleasing, and functional solution that’s changing the game for restaurants, breweries, hotels, and other commercial establishments.

Also known as a sail shade, this innovative sun shade features elegant sails and inclined stainless steel or aluminum pillars – much like a sailboat. It also uses a spring-assisted rewinding system that facilitates the manual opening and closing of the sail.


Why Businesses are Anchoring to Shade Sails

Sun shade sails are a versatile and cost-effective way to add both style and functionality to your patio or other outdoor space.

Easy Installation

With the help of an elegant white stone ballast or the convenient option to mount on the ground, the sails can easily be installed anywhere – no need to prepare a foundation!

Year-Round Shelter

Typically inaccessible for a large part of the year due to weather extremities, outdoor spaces are transformed into operational areas with the installation of shade sails. These architectural marvels deflect both sunlight and harmful UV rays, creating a safe retreat.


Shelter Outdoor’s shade sails are made of hypoallergenic, non-absorbent, and mildew-resistant Dacron. Additionally, they feature an aluminum profile with galvanized steel plates in a granite aggregate for ground anchoring. Because of their sturdy, all-weather construction, they require minimal maintenance.

Unfold the Savings

Efficiency and sustainability are not just buzzwords: They translate into significant energy savings when commercial shade sails are factored into the equation. By reducing the direct exposure of buildings to sunlight, a sun shade sail plays a role in keeping the interior naturally cool — thereby cutting energy bills. Plus, it provides additional space that doesn’t require traditional heating and cooling methods.

A key advantage of a shade sail vs. a traditional patio umbrella is that it maintains an open atmosphere without taking up too much space. If you prefer a commercial umbrella for your outdoor space, we encourage you to explore our diverse range of P6 cantilever umbrellas, available in configurations of up to four parasols on a single pole.


Custom Sun Shade Sails

Shade sails are a canvas for your creative vision, available in a multitude of customization options. The result is a one-of-a-kind aesthetic that resonates with your clientele.
