Shade Sails for your Business: Using a Creative Accent

March 4, 2016

Awnings and patio covers are great accents for any business. But did you know you have other options? Shade sails are an excellent, creative, and aesthetically pleasing way to accent your business and give it a sense of style and flare that stands out from the crowd.
So how do shade sails differ from an awning? Traditional awnings are connected to your home or building and can be retractable. These awnings provide shade just like shade sails. However, shade sails are constructed using poles to create tension in the fabric. The structure of the shade sail looks like a boat’s sail, thus the name. Shade sails can be layered and constructed using creative ideas and designs. (See below for photos).


Shade sails can be used to accent your business’ open area, like an outdoor lounge space. They can also be used to cover an outdoor display area and even on playgrounds. Here is a quick list of areas you can use shade sails for your business:

  • Walkways
  • Playgrounds
  • Gardens
  • Lounge Areas
  • Pool Areas
  • Decks
  • Dining Areas
  • Tennis Courts
  • Parking Lots


​Shade sails are basically the more creative version of your traditional awning. You can use various patterns to accent your building’s design or even use a color or pattern that goes with your products and services.
Shade sails are beautiful to look at and are a great way to attract the attention of customers and even impress potential business partners. Remember, in order to catch the attention of a potential buyer, you have to be creative, innovative, and willing to go the extra mile. Putting up something like a shade sail or an awning with graphics is one way to do that.
