Extend the season of your outdoor deck, patio, or outdoor dining area with a pergola shade sail. Uniquely sized to fit Pergola Depot pergolas, our pergola shades give you protection from unwanted sunshine, while adding style and beauty to your outdoor entertainment areas. Choose from two UV-blocking water resistant fabrics in one of 12 popular color choices.

Quality pergola shades are sized to fit our standard size freestanding Big Kahuna and Sombrero pergolas with 6×6 posts and overall dimensions of 10’x10’ up to 20’x20’ (inside post to post dimensions of 6’x6’ up to 16’x16’).

The Pergola Depot Shade Sail Kit comes complete with sail constructed with either Polytex or Starfire water resistant fabric, high quality stainless steel mounting hardware, and installation instructions. The kits are easy to install and the sail can be easily removed for storms and seasonal needs. Custom fabric, colors, and sizes available upon request. Proudly made to order in the USA.


Shade sails are a quick and easy way to create extra shade and light rain protection for your patio, while adding a touch of color and breezy style to your pergola and outdoor space. For the outdoor or patio landscaping specialist, pergola sails can customize your contemporary landscape designs for shading the garden, outdoor kitchen/dining area, or pool deck.

Pergola sail shades can be a beautiful addition to your backyard, pool deck, patio or other outdoor garden area while providing excellent protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and protection from light to medium rain. Much like a retractable awning, shade sails are a modern DIY way to add sun & light rain protection near a pool or playground, make a carport, or even commercial spaces for a picnic area, open-air restaurant or community pool.

Our shade sail kits are made by hand using all high quality marine grade materials, including UV stable marine grade threads; water, soil, and stain resistant fabric; reinforced webbing edges, and stainless steel corner hardware and attachment hardware. All shade sails come with a one (1) year limited warranty covering defects in materials and workmanship or damage to the shade sail kit sustained prior to delivery to you.

Sizes range from small square to large rectangle. Sizes are offered in dimensions to fit our standard size freestanding pergolas with inside post to post measurements of 6’x6’ up to 16’x16’. If you are ordering one of our custom size pergolas and would like to add a shade sail, submit a custom shade sail quote request to ensure a proper fit. For standard sizes listed on the website, select the pergola size you are ordering, and the dimensions of the shade sail that corresponds to that size pergola will be listed. When fully installed, your shade sail should measure approximately 10-12 inches smaller than the inside post on each corner. The turnbuckle at each corner may be tightened as needed due to the natural stretch over time.
