Overlapping Shade Sails

Shade structures or shade sails can help turn outdoor terraces into comfortable entertaining spaces during summer. The problem is that most decks are too narrow to support the traditional shade sail design.

Mulders have designed an overlapping shade sail structure for entertainment areas where space is at a premium. A series of overlapping sails can be laid out to practically fit within most space restrictions. Mulders new design also reduces the number of supporting posts needed by a third.

Their unique supporting pole structure does the work of two or more poles. Multiple sails can be fixed at different levels on specially extended fixing arms.
Typically a supporting post can have a diameter of up to which can eat intro precious entertaining space. They need to be large enough to support a heavy sail under tension and wind pressure.

For a deck that needs two overlapping sails, the number of posts needed is reduced from eight to six. The end effect of this new design is a series of sails, stepped at different levels.

The supporting poles are made from hot dipped galvanized steel which is very resistant to rain, salt corrosion and rust. All sails incorporate anchor points which can be fixed to non rusting galvanized or powder coated poles or brackets.

The sails themselves can be made in a choice of high quality shade cloths, architectural grade polyester mesh and solid rainproof PVC’s. These materials withstand wind, sun and rain. UV ray resistant materials provide superb protection from the damaging rays of the sun.
