Is this what you need when you buy Alion Home 8' x 12' Waterproof Woven Sun Shade Sail?
Whether you are trying to stay cool or stay dry, our colorful collection of shades is the solution you've been looking for. – Protect your family, friends and pets from direct sun or keep your stuff dry when it rains. – These are polyester sun shade sails that are more like a canvas than a plastic tarp. – We use stainless steel D rings…our competition uses steel that typically rusts after the first rain. – Get as creative as you want by combining different sizes and colors. – Perfect for patios, pools, backyards, decks, gardens, restaurants, bars, etc. Package Contents:1 Waterproof Sun Shade Sail, Standard Nylon Rope free gift Note: No “waterproof” sun shade from any manufacturer is 100 waterproof, then it would be a plastic tarp. If water is allowed to pool in the center of the sail, it will slowly drip through. Some water may also drip through the stitching on the seams, but if the sail is installed at at 30-45 degree angle with enough tension, most rain water will run off. Please refer to the installation illustration. These sails should not replace a tarp if you need to keep something 100 dry. We really don't recommend to use it in windy area as it can catch a lot of wind to rip. Please choose our breathable HDPE sails if you are in windy area.
Customer reviewsGreat quality at a budget price - SECOND UPDATE
I was so happy with this shade that I bought a second one, in a different color, in June 2020. This one had a seam across the center that started leaking with the first rain. I was sad. I took it down and put Gorilla tape across the seam, on both sides. This has nearly eliminated the leak, but it has greatly detracted from the look. Had it happened within the first 30 days, I would have definitely returned it. The seam does not show in the online photos, so you might want to check.
