Why Shade Sails Can Add Style and Shade to Your Patio

If you’re a home or business owner in Southern California, then your patio might become unbearably hot. Don’t let this beautiful outdoor space go to waste. Custom awnings, shades, and screens are always an excellent choice, and new improvements have made shade sails more practical than ever.

  • Efficient

Recent developments in technology have allowed textile manufacturers to create a material that’s both permeable to air yet still provides protection from the sun’s UV rays. Shade sails give guests or customers shade and a cool breeze. Unlike traditional patio structures, shade sails won’t trap heat, so you won’t have to add fans or misters to make the patio comfortable in the hot summer sun.

  • Modular

Shade sails can be retrofitted for any location. Large or small, the material can be cut into different shapes to fit the specified area. A new trend in design is overlapping sails that create the illusion of an outdoor room without actually building an enclosure. Since shade sails are anchored at a few strategic points, they can be installed temporarily or permanently. This means shade sails are ideal for outdoor events that require shade or buildings that want lasting protection. The modular design also cuts costs for manufacturing and installation.

  • Durable

Even though shade sails are ideal for sunnier climates, they can also withstand the elements. In addition to providing UV protection, the sails can be angled to account for water runoff if you live in an area with heavy rainfall. Waterproof perforation technology allows air to pass underneath the sail without letting water collect on top.

If you think shade sails would be the perfect addition to your patio, visit Moran Canvas Products.  All our products are made right here in America and come with a five-year warranty. Our family has been in the awning business for generations, so give us a call at (888) 904-8665 for more information. 


3 Canvas Products That Can Give Your Pool Area a Unique Look

Shade Sails & Outdoor Curtains mfg'd by Moran Canvas

Nothing beats a dip in the pool on a hot summer day. If you’re lucky enough to have a pool in your backyard, then you already know about all the perks. But a pool can’t be perfect without adequate shading. If you like to host barbeques or pool parties, then it’s crucial to have protection from the scorching sun. Here are a few options that can make your pool area even cooler, from solar screens to residential awnings.

 1.  Fixed & Retractable Awnings

If you have an outdoor pool but want nearby shade, consider adding an awning. Awnings work as an extension of the building and can be built to match the decor of the house. They are especially practical if the pool is close to the home. Not only will the awnings provide relief from the sun while you’re outside, but also help cool your home indoors and cut costs on electricity bills.

If you’d prefer a less permanent fixture, consider a retractable awning. These awnings use a motor or manual hand crank to hide the awning when you don’t need it. Even though awning is made from durable canvas, storing it away can increase its longevity

2.  Solar Screens

Solar screens are a great way to give you more control over the temperature around the pool. Solar screening blocks out harmful UV rays and other outdoor elements that affect your pool, including falling leaves or monsoon rain. They’re so efficient, in fact, that a solar screen lowers the surrounding temperature by 10-15 degrees.

 3.  Shade Sails

The hottest trend in patio design is shade sails. These shades can be retrofitted to the exact area you need covered. They’re a much more practical way to add shade around your pool area. Modern shade sails are made from materials that provide UV protection and waterproofing.

At Moran Canvas Products, we offer a huge variety of canvas awnings, shades, and screens and can design them precisely to your needs. Give us a call at (888) 904-8665 for more information.
