Breathable Sail Shades FAQs 

  • Can you leave shade sails up all year? 

    Depending on the fixture method used to set up the sail shade, they can be up all year provided they are installed correctly. For best performance year round, clean the shade cloth regularly using mild detergent, warm water and a soft brush. For more information, see our guide on ‘Can You Leave a Sail Shade Up All Year?’.
  • Are sail shades waterproof?

    Shade sails can have different purposes so are made out of different materials – for example, our breathable shade sails are made to give you cool air on a warm day so are made from breathable fabric. Unless your shade sail is stated otherwise, it will likely not be waterproof. We do, however, have a wide range of woven waterproof shade sails for you to choose from if you’re looking to protect an area of your garden from the rain.
  • Can I wash a Kookaburra sail shade?

    Yes you can! Kookaburra shade sails can be cleaned whenever you need to – just use a mild detergent and warm water. Gently clean it with a soft brush. For a more detailed guide, see ‘How to Clean a Sail Shade’.
  • Are all shade sails permeable? 

    Not all of them. We offer breathable shade sails which are made of knitted weave fabric, allowing hot air to escape, and are indeed permeable. However, we also offer waterproof sail shades that are non-permeable, which are taped at the seams to prevent water ingress.
  • How do I install a sail shade?

    Sail shade installation can seem a bit daunting. Thankfully, we have a handy guide on how to install a sail shade that is super easy to follow along.
