Rectangle Sail Shades FAQs

  • How do you attach a rectangle shade sail?

    Firstly, find suitable anchor fixing points for the four corners of the shade sail. Fixing points may include trees, poles, walls and more. It’s important that these fixing points are structurally sound enough to firmly hold the shade sail. Be mindful that high winds can add stress to it so carefully plan out its position and angle beforehand. Once the sail shade is attached to the anchor fixing points, there are various methods that can be used to tension it. To see these methods and more detailed information, see our guide on 'How to install a Sail Shade'.
  • What shape of shade sail is best?

    The ideal shape depends on several factors including the size of the outdoor space, how much shade you would like and where the sail shade is positioned and at what angle. Rectangular shade sails are the most popular as they cover a wide area and are typically easier to fix on to posts and walls. Triangular sail shades are more versatile in that they can be positioned and angled to suit your needs. For more information on what shade sail to buy, read our guide on the Top 5 Best Sail Shades for your Garden.
  • What shapes do shade sails come in?

    Most shade sails typically come in shapes of squares, rectangles or triangles (also available in right angle triangle). These are usually easier to install and tension than custom made sails, depending on the shape. At Primrose, our sail shades provide the most versatility to an outdoor space as they can be temporary or permanent fixtures, and may be angled to your specifications.
  • Are shade sails worth it?

    Being relatively low cost, shade sails add a layer of protection, comfort and character to any outdoor space. Aside from the benefits that they provide, such as protection from UV rays and protection from rain, shade sails add charm and contemporary beauty to an outdoor space. At Primrose, we offer 4 different types of sail shades to suit your needs: Premium Waterproof, Premium Breathable, Standard Breathable and Standard Water Resistant Sail Shades.
