What is the best high-end shade sail?

To define the optimal quality of a shade sail , it is a question of taking into account the one which fully meets the needs of the development project, which presents the best durability and which integrates aesthetically into its environment. If you want to get a positive response to each of these prerogatives, then the high- end Abrivoile® brand shade sail is undoubtedly the best equipment you should choose.

Abrivoile® offers you the creation of your tailor-made shade sails which allows you to select the shape and color of the shade cloth as well as the type of installation via a fixing mast , wall hooks or even a system guying . The best high-end shade sail is the one which is entirely created and designed for your outdoor arrangements and which shows its effectiveness in the long term: qualities offered by Abrivoile® .

Why are shade sails often triangular in shape?

high-end shade sail

For reasons of stability, uniform tension, ease of installation or even aesthetics, the terrace shade sail is generally offered in a triangular shape by many manufacturers and distributors. The shading area of the triangle is often reduced due to its shape, which is why to keep the triangle effect, Socotex with its Abrivoile® range produces two-tone sails. The two-tone shade sails optimize the coverage surface while visually offering 2 triangles of different colors. In certain cases this makes it possible to avoid the superposition of triangles while reducing the cost.

Abrivoile® expertise in the manufacture of a tailor-made and high-quality professional shade sail allows us to offer our customers equipment of different shapes and high-end shade sails tailor-made to meet all types needs, even for shading large spaces.

Optimal coverage of the area to be shaded, wind resistance, openwork or waterproof shade sail, air circulation, general aesthetics, state-of-the-art fixing system adapted to the constraints of the project... Everything is designed to create a space of sun protection to cover a terrace or a quirky outdoor space, whether it is a triangular, rectangular shade sail or even a hexagonal shade cloth .

Pergola or shade sail, what to choose?

A pergola has certain advantages that a shade sail does not offer and this is true in a reciprocal way. So why choose between a pergola and a shade sail? The Abrivoile® brand offers you a 2 in 1 solution with the Abrivoile® pergola which combines the qualities of a high-end shade sail with the designer and contemporary frame of a pergola.

The Abrivoile® pergola combines the best of both solutions. Like an arbor, it offers a turnkey designer outdoor layout, ideal for terraces and gardens. Its stretched canvas protects you from the sun while adding an aesthetic touch to your outdoor space. Installation flexibility is another major advantage of this equipment: the fixing points are designed to adapt to various configurations in order to integrate harmoniously into any type of environment.

In addition, the choice of colors for our shade sails offers you the possibility of personalizing your Abrivoile® pergola so that it blends perfectly into the landscape of your garden or on your terrace .
