When the Coolashade team arrive to do an installation the first thing that is done is to once again talk to the customer to make sure he/she is fully aware of where the posts and/or wall fixings will be. This is to make sure there has been no misunderstandings.
Holes for posts are dug and all waste materials are taken off site for disposal. Generally for a smaller Shade Sail we recommend that the posts be buried at least 800mm deep and the footing to be 500mm wide, this increases for larger shades and loose soil. Once the footings are dug then the posts are cut to length and concreted in to position. When we install posts we always give the posts a slight lean away from the centre of the shade to allow for any deflection the post may have.
