We custom mounted two fabricated roof posts, and erected a tall centre post opposite these and two lower posts at either end of the pool. The brief was to provide maximum shade coverage, using a single shade sail, to multiple outdoor areas while partly shading the pool. The complexity lay in fabricating and mounting a single shade sail, high and over the roof, while not spoiling the rural views looking outside from inside the home. The end result was an outstanding visual appeal to the outdoor entertaining area and maximum shade coverage achieved using black shade cloth, installed in an extremely hot climate in a rural setting. Mounting the sail up high allows the heat to escape and cool breezes to be captured. A big visual impact with uninterrupted views from inside the home to the outdoor areas was achieved. It is now a cooler and more comfortable area of the home at any time of the day, offering excellent shade coverage and cool breezes.
