I know the typical shade sail shape is bowed on the edges because of tension, etc. but is it possible to get a completely square shade sail? And also to have that shade sail be completely sealed/flushed on two edges against a structure?

There are already places to attach the shade sail/fabric solution.

From the picture below, I would like it flush/sealed against side A and B, and then angled down from A to C. All corners have a place to attach the sail/fabric.

enter image description here

Is there any solution that I can implement in this area?

  • You’ll need to contact a company that sews custom awnings, I see no reason they can’t make and install that for you. It’s not the type of shade sail you can buy off amazon for $30-40 tho... – Tyson Jul 9 '18 at 22:15
  • Do you want all the water to drain to side C? Why do you want to use a sail rather than a rigid surface? Do you want it to be translucent? – Jim Stewart Jul 10 '18 at 0:08
  • @JimStewart There seems to be a skylight above already. Perhaps it’s a visual barrier from top level to lower level. If it needs to be a temporary installation, it could be a friction fit... I’d hate to try and fasten into those walls. (Nice doors: two pair hinges.) Where is this...high wind area? – Lee Sam Jul 10 '18 at 0:49
  • @Lee Sam, didn't think about that, but prolly is fine screen that admits rain. – Jim Stewart Jul 10 '18 at 3:45
