Cloth fabrics offer a different shade protection percentage depending on their colour. Generally, the darker cloths having the higher protection. Sails can not only be produced from shade cloth fabrics, but also a waterproof shade cloth and vinyl—providing the fall of the sail is of an adequate angle.
When choosing the fabric for your sail, you should always consider the surrounding building's colour but also the shade protection percentage required. Using a darker fabric will give the illusion of a cleaner shade, whereas the lighter fabrics allow a greater light exposure to the area.
