In this blog, we will explore our preferred fabrics; explain how and why we choose this cloth for our Shade Sails and speak about prolonging the life expectancy of each Shade Sail Solution we provide.

Our Shade Cloth Selection Process.

Over the last 35 years, Stuart Bell Sails have trialled and tested almost every Shade Sail Cloth available to our disposal. We have dedicated a large portion of our time since launching, to developing affordable Shade Sails that last the test of time. Our efforts to find the highest quality-based cloth with no compromise in colour and style diversity led us to our two main cloths today.

Appreciating the typical Australian weather conditions, along with the constant trying temperatures was crucial, in order to find the perfect fit for Stuart Bell Sails. Our team researches and innovates regularly to provide Perth’s best Shade Sail Solutions for the people of Perth, to enable them to enjoy time in their outdoor area, safely. We understand the harmful effects of intense sun rays and we appreciate that our customers seek protection from these rays – not just partial shade.

We therefore invest in protection-based cloth that will enhance our client’s outdoor entertainment areas, by offering a variety of Shade Sail Designs, Themes and of course, Shade Sail Colours. Your chosen Shade Sail Cloth will essentially dictate your entire solution.
