The shade cloth material that Coolashade installs has been manufactured and developed in Australia for over 15 years. Coolashade are the market leaders for the manufacture and installation of Shade Sails on the Costa Blanca and Spain. Due to the increased demand for our services we now sell and install Shade Sails in Spain and the rest of Europe.
What are Coolashade Shade Sails made from?
Coolashade Shade Sails are manufactured from Commercial 95 High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a knitted shade cloth that is manufactured solely for tensioned sun shade structures. The material is then treated with UV stabilizers to give it a very long life in direct sunlight.
Apart from the strength of the knitted construction, the fabric also allows Coolashades to breathe. This means air can circulate through the fabric to create a substantially cooler environment beneath. With the heat from the sun above and the cooler temperature underneath, the air is automatically drawn through the material with a natural convection effect. The advantage of this is when you are underneath the shade sail you are not having heat radiated from above which is a big problem with gazebos, vinyl structures, parasols, metal roofed buildings and Awnings in Spain.
Coolashade Shade Sail Features and Construction.
Coolashade shade sails are available in a range of 16 different colours and because they are treated with UV stabilisers they will not fade or change colour.
Coolashade fabric will not rot, will not fray and the high quality lock-stitch construction gives superior tear strength. Coolashade shade sails are only constructed from commercial grade knitted shade-cloth with up to 96% UV block.
Coolashade Shade Sails are manufactured and installed to stand up to the toughest of conditions, making them ideal for areas subject to high wind conditions that can be experienced on the Costa’s in Spain and they will not flap or make noise.
Coolashade Shade Sails are purpose made to suit any space and in a wide range of colours. All Shade Sails are manufactured in Spain in a specialised sail loft using the same technologies and materials that you would find in the sails of ocean going yachts.
Where can Coolashade Shade Sails be installed?
Coolashade shade sails can be attached to existing buildings (subject to survey), using the very latest epoxy resin chemical fixings, You can watch a short video to show how we fix in solid concrete here – Chemical fixing in solid concrete, or if you have hollow brick built walls you can see it here – Chemical fixing in to hollow brick walls.
Shade Sails can also be attached to galvanized steel, Stainless Steel or timber posts and all footings for posts are engineered to give complete reassurance that the posts will not fail in any weather conditions.
Because a Coolashade Shade Sail is not a permanent structure, they can be easily removed when necessary with minimum tools. We offer a twice yearly take down and install service to make sure you get the best out of your Coolashade for many years to come. We also provide servicing of any existing shade structure that you may have. Please contact us to receive a quotation.
Coolashades are structurally safe and engineered to high specifications to meet your requirements and provide a safe environment away from the harmful effects of over exposure to the sun.
