Sun shade sails are designed to stand up to the elements, but can they stand up to extreme weather events? When high winds are forecast, many shade sail owners wonder if they need to remove the sails for safety reasons. Here is what you need to know.
Most shade sails are designed to withstand winds of up to 85 miles per hour. If higher winds are forecast, you may wish to remove the sails to prevent them from being damaged. Start by checking the wind rating for your shade sails. Some are specially manufactured to withstand higher winds. Also consider the age of your shade sails. Over time, shades become weaker. If you see signs of fraying or weakness around the edges, you may benefit from removing the sails in high wind events.
