What is a breathable shade fabric?

A breathable fabric is a fabric characterised by the so-called "loose weave", i.e. a fabric texture in which the weaves are less dense than in other types of fabric, such as waterproof fabric. 

The result is precisely the characteristic breathability that gives freshness to the sail and removes the " warm cape " effect.  

In addition, sail canopies you find in this category, made of HDPE fabric, are guaranteed hail resistant.

 

Our HDPE breathable fabric is made of high-density polyethylene.

This is distinguished by its greater tensile strength than low-density polyethylene. This characteristic is optimal for a sail because it allows it to be stretched to its maximum to eliminate any creases, without running the risk of tearing it.

 

Our breathable fabrics

Maanta offers two types of breathable fabric in high-density polyethylene (HDPE and Meshnet). Both are treated with anti-mould and, due to their characteristics, can dry very quickly even after long rain showers.

The two fabrics differ from each other in their grammage, i.e. their weight/surface area ratio (g/sqm). 

 

The first fabric called HDPE is breathable and makes up all entry-level "EasyShade" breathable shade sails.

It has a weight of 180 gr/sqm and is virgin, i.e. not recycled. The choice of this fabric was made to ensure a higher quality of the thread. 

In the EasyShade model this fabric is always proposed with a cross-cut pattern, i.e. with horizontal bands and high-strength seams, and in 4 colour variants: ivory, beige, cloud and graphite. There are 20 different sizes to choose from, including four shapes: triangle, triangle rectangle, rectangle and square.

All our breathable 180 g/m² fabric also has an essential feature for a shade structure: it provides a good protection from ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

 

The second breathable fabric, called MESHNET, is a prestigious technical fabric and is used to make the Saill and Solaria models.

It is also made of high-density polyethylene, but with a higher weight: 320 g/m2.

 

This fabric is completely Made in Italy and once again a conscious decision was made to opt for a virgin fabric to guarantee a new and strong thread. 

MESHNET is a real heat shield, thanks to its wide mesh and its specific weight it lets the heat of the ground pass upwards and at the same time keeps the area underneath the cover ventilated. At the same time the MESHNET fabric blocks > 89% of ultraviolet rays, an essential element when choosing a patio sail.

 

With the "MESHNET" 320 gr/sqm fabric, two models of sails are produced in our warehouses, 100% "Made in Italy". 

 

The first model in breathable 320 gr/sqm material is called "Saill" and is characterised by a cross-cut cutting.

The cutting of the fabric is done digitally by a state-of-the-art precision cutting machine. The final stitching is done by our experienced seamstresses.

 

The second model in "MESHNET" fabric is called "Solaria" and is characterised by a radial cut. What does this mean? The pieces of fabric are not cut into strips but into segments and then sewn together radially: the radial cut was invented in 1983 by sails designer Tom Schnackenberg. The advantage is that a correct and uniform distribution of tension is guaranteed. External factors such as wind are better supported by a shade sail with this cut.

 

Both the 'Saill' and 'Solaria' models are produced in standard sizes and are also custom-made. 

Maanta offers 15 standard sizes, in rectangular, square and triangular shapes, in 4 colours: ivory, beige, cloud and graphite. 

For customised sizes we have created a special configurator in which you can enter the desired measurements.
