Calculating Your Sail Dimensions
Before using the Sail Shade World Instant Quote System you should measure the dimensions of the sail that you require. The system provides two options for entering this data:
1. Exact - the dimensions you enter are the exact dimensions that would be used to manufacture the sail. You must make an allowance for the fittings that you plan on using at each corner of the sail (typically 30cm).
2. Allowance - the dimensions you enter are the dimensions between your desired mounting points. In this case the quote system will make an allowance for the fittings and calculate the correct size of sail for your application.
This document provides more guidance in calculating the correct dimensions and using the on-line quotation system.

Installing Your Sunsail
Sail shades can be installed by anyone with some degree of "do it yourself" expertise - it is not normally necessary to use the services of a professional. A few tools will be required - to make holes in a wall or timber to secure the mounting points and this may require the use of power tools such as a hammer drill. The installation will be a lot easier if a second pair of hands are available to help pull the sail into position.
Bear in mind that the sail itself is immensely strong - the edges are manufactured from car seat belt webbing - so any forces due to the wind will be passed by the sail through to the mountings. If the sun shade is left in position in windy conditions, the mountings must be very secure and the sunsail must be installed with a large amount of tension at each corner.
For more information on safely installing your sail, see the Sail Shade World installation guide:
