Questions and answers

q: What are sizes bigger than 5x5 please?
a: This is the largest size we currently stock.
By Trade Tested on November 5, 2019
4 votes
q: Is this waterproof?
a: Yes to a large extent, if water is allowed to pool for long periods it may seep through. Make sure it's installed at an appropriate angle and kept taut to avoid this.

q: How would these cope in the wind if installed as per recommendations?
a: Generally fine, obviously if there is a hurricane on the way we'd recommend taking it down.

q: Our area is only about 3m by 3m. Is it possible to somehow make the bigger one fit?
a: It would be difficult, our 3.6m model might be easier, especially as they need to be installed on an angle, which will eat up some of the length.

q: Does the shade sail come with the fixing kit? shackle? tensioners?
a: These come with just the stainless D-ring in each corner, so you can decide on your fixing method. The fixing kit we sell is optional, as these will be fixed in a variety of ways depending on the user. You can see it and add to your cart under the 'Frequently Bought Together' section of this page.

q: Hi there, can I apply waterproof spray to the shade sail to increase it's waterproof ability?
a: Yes you could, they're pretty good though!

q: Hi are they exactly 5m x 5m? And will they stretch much when installed and over time? Cheers
a: Yes, this is measured corner to corner, the edge is not straight. Generally they shouldn't stretch, but may require a re-tension once a year. It all depends on the kind of wind they are exposed to.

q: I am thinking of putting one up to shade my car in the driveway. The one thing holding me back is the wind factor. We live in B.O.P. and sometimes get some good winds come through. At what point does the sail have to be taken down?? I suppose common sense prevails here, but don’t want to have to rush out and take the sail down each time.
a: They're intended to be a pretty much permanent installation, so they're pretty sturdy. Like you say, common sense will play a part and a lot will come down to how well it is installed eg. as tight a possible, to secure mounting points. But generally you shouldn't be rushing out to take it down every time it gets a bit windy.

q: What kind of windy weather can they handle? Could I leave it up all year round and it will support itself?
a: It's designed to be a permanent installation, so they're pretty sturdy. A lot will come down to how well it is installed eg. as tight a possible, to secure mounting points.

Cant fault this product at all, it stands up to the strong winds and rain of the south island with ease. Would buy another one if we ever needed it.

Jason Canterbury

Great sail

Installed as per instructions and had a shower of rain, water proof as described and water ran off with no pooling. Make sure you have a really good angle on it at least 600mm fall to at least 1 corner and taught with minimal sag or it will pool water. Overall happy with this product.

Seems to be very high quality, even for its price. Water beads and runs off really well, hoping that lasts!

Really good waterproof shade sail

4 months ago


This is a really good quality waterproof shade sail! Only giving it four stars because I can't decide if the waterproof part is good or bad. It will stretch a tonne with the water on it. However we've put a big stick to hold ours up in the middle. We would buy again however!

Excellent product. I didn't have quiet enough room to implement an angle to ensure rainwater runs off so I inserted an eyelet in exactly the middle. Works absolutely fine.

Great product, high quality and waterproof as stated. Inclined to stretch and pool water if set less than a 15deg slope. But if angled correctly is a great shelter.

AD Auckland

Good for shade

Great shade, but due to the size almost impossible to get taut in the middle - holds water really badly so stretched and constantly full of water. Too big to regularly/easily take up and down.

Set up just beyond our ranch slider doors to a small terrace. We can now open the sliders and let cool air move through our house. An amazing difference to our outdoor living space.

Shade sail

Really strong and has been quite forgiving for a learner :) as it took a few goes to get in the right position and was pushed to breaking point from water a few times but has been awesome once resolved the design

DK Auckland

These sails look great BUT, unless you take them down for rainy days, they STRETCH, water pools and that only causes them to stretch more! Retensioning is a PITA and will require frequent adjusting of corner tie-downs as conditions deteriorate. Creating a steep-sided "tent" seems to ease this problem but is an "ugly" semi-solution.

Brilliant shade sail

about 1 year ago


We bought this as a replacement for one from a popular hardware store, and this one is far superior for exactly the same price. High quality fabric, really well made. We're going to get a spare to tuck away unopened in the garden shed, just in case for some reason they are discontinued in future.

Great Quality and Fantastic Value for Money

I bought 2 shade sails and the fixings from Trade Tested and they arrived within 48 hours. Because the price was so low compared to other retailers I was a bit worried, but I needn't have. We are doing building works so our builder put them up. He was amazed at the good quality and value for money. They also look fantastic up.

Didn't realise how water resistant it was. It's been an awesome addition to out previously sun beaten back yard. Very pleased. Some stretching/sagging after heavy rain and flexing timber but definitely recommend this sail. Bigger is better!

The sail is good for sun but it holds the rain !! We have had to put in some "eyelets" in to the cloth so that the rain can drain through without stretching the fabric.

Nice looking and good value

over 2 years ago


This thing is LARGE! Provides very good shade coverage over our patio. Seems well-constructed, but the straps and D-rings at the corners may be a weak point. The D-rings shift under tension and can cause the straps to bunch, but that may not be a problem. Overall, I would recommend based on price of comparable items at other retailers.

The shade sail was just what I needed and the service, communication and delivery was spot on. This is the first thing I have brought from Trade Tested and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Great quality material, in fact its too good as it seems to be waterproof and instead of shedding the water it pools it. I left it up one night and I came out in the morning to find that it was almost to the floor with a huge pool of water pulling it down. I would get one again but would be more careful with the pitch and tension next time.
