Kookaburra® 3m Square Sand Waterproof Shade Sail With Frame and Fixing Kit

A beautifully made sail shade frame that allows you to create your own stylish, shaded area. You are able to adjust the sail shade in each corner of the frame to 4 different height settings, so you can create different angles with a sail shade to get the look and the shade that you want.

What's in the Box?

  • 2 short uprights
  • 2 long uprights
  • 4 crossbeams
  • 3m square dappled shade sail
  • All required fixings (turnbuckles, snap hooks etc.)


This sail shade frame has 4 height positions on each of the corners, so that you can create different angles with your sail shade, and thus create different areas of shade. It has a strong, steel frame, which you secure in firm ground with the pegs provided, or for a more permanent solution you can bolt in place so it is there all year round. The frame is made up of four poles, with two of them being longer than the other slightly shorter two, and this allows you to suspend your sail shade at different angles.

Start enjoying the delights that a sail shade and frame provide, by choosing between the excellent sail shade selection below and ticking the ones you would like to purchase.

How do I fix my Sail Shade?

Find a suitable anchor point for each corner of the shade sail, such as those listed below. These need to be strong enough to take the strain of the shade sail material when tensioned.

Anchor points could be:

  • A wall or strong beam
  • A suitable tree
  • A wooden post at least 100mm diameter set in the ground
  • A metal pole at least 48mm diameter set in the ground
  • A metal pole at least 48mm diameter fitted into a sleeve in the ground, like a rotary washing line

Fixing points should be at least 2.4m above the ground, and it's extremely important that these are sufficiently strong to take the full weight of the shade sail in windy conditions. The wind can add significantly to the stress of the shade sail on any fixings, so it is vital to be certain that they can stand the additional drag.

NB: If you have any doubts you should take advice from a builder or structural engineer.

If you need to install posts, these should be 48mm wide galvanised steel which is 4mm thick (these can be easily painted if required). Posts should be angled away from the centre of the shade sail by at least 10 degrees to provide additional strength and stability.

Footings
Footings for posts for shade sails up to 5m should be 400mm square and 800mm deep and this should increase to 400mm x 1200mm for larger sizes.

Foundations

Concrete
Concrete should be well packed down around the post and sloping slightly outwards at the top to ensure water does not collect around the post. This should be left for a minimum of 48 hours to allow it to set completely before you attach the shade sail. We do not recommend the use of rapid set concrete.

Firm ground
Lay a 100mm depth of 20mm gravel at the base of the post. Add concrete and brace post on the angle.

Soft ground
Pour a 100mm depth of concrete at the bottom of the hole to provide a solid pad. Allow this to set. Add the gravel at the base of the post. Add concrete and brace post on the angle.
